‘Star Wars Identities’ Memorabilia Show Finally Comes To London This November


Get a closer look some of the original props and costumes from all seven Star Wars films in an exhibition that opens in London on November 8th. Thousands of fans will be able to see several rare items and one of the original costumes that Darth Vader used during the filming of the franchise. Read on for more!


With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story right around the corner excitement is building, not just for the the return to a galaxy far, far away but also to get a look at the galactic Empire at the height of its power.


BBC.com is reporting that at least 200 original props from all of the original Star Wars films will be on hand in one amazing interactive show headed to London next month. Visitors to the show will be able to see several rare props that have been loaned by the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, which was established by the Jedi Master himself ‘George Lucas’.




The Interactive show, called ‘Star Wars Identities’ allows attendees to gain an understanding of the franchise’s universe as well as creating a character of their own. Jacques-Andres Dupont, President of X3 Productions which are the creators of the show said:

“This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars.” He said. “We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own.”

Thousand of visitors will also get a chance to view Star Wars memorabilia that include Princess Leia’s famous bikini worn by actress Carrie Fisher in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, concept art produced before the filming of the first three Star Wars films and one of the original R2-D2 costumes worn by the late actor Kenny Baker.



Speaking of the Empire! I had a chance to check out some of my favorite Star Wars film used items years ago at Balboa Park in San Diego, California and I will never forget the incredible experience. With ‘Rogue One’ less than a few months away, one just can’t wait to see a return of the Empire and the Sith lord, Darth Vader.


You can get tickets and learn more about the show here, perhaps you will become one with the force at this interactive event.

Who are you? And how did you get that way?
STAR WARS™ Identities explores the theme of identity using ten components that help make us who we are: species, genes, parents, culture, mentors, friends, events, occupation, personality, and values.
These ten components are grouped into the exhibition’s three main sections, which follow the progression of identity from childhood to adulthood: first Origins, then Influences, and finally Choices. This thematic backbone gives structure not only to the educational content of the exhibition but to the Star Wars collection as well.


May the Force be with you!

    Do I need to point out Vader’s inner cloak in that image?

      Uhm, not before I point out that the value of black is of by 2%.

    So, according to this, the exhibition will include props and costumes from all 7 star wars films. It also says that they are on loan from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. My question is…..does the Lucas Museum actually own items from THE FORCE AWAKENS? I am just curious on how that works exactly since George Lucas is no longer a part of Lucasfilm. Maybe Lucasfilm donates to his museum, or maybe he buys them?

    Anyone up for a for UK/European SWNNers meet up/viewing when the show opens?

    I’ve always wanted to see one of these Star Wars exhibitions. I’ve gone to one for Star Trek, but I hate how they don’t let you take photos. As an artist, being able to capture the texture of a costume or the exact detail in my own way is what I enjoy most about these things

      They let me take as many photos as I wanted when it was in my city. You should have no trouble, but I’d look into it.

      Photos were not a problem when I saw this stuff a few years ago — I took lots. FWIW, The Doctor Who museum in Cardiff is cool with photos too. It’s funny though, The Star Trek exhibit I went to at a Tech Museum in California (where I also saw the Star Wars exhibit) was super anal about pictures. Several years ago (when Star Trek was arguably more popular than now) I went to a different exhibit of the same trek props and nobody cared how many pictures I took.

      You can take photos. Just no flash 🙂

    I went to this when it started up here in Alberta, and DAMN was it ever cool. (This was just before the buyout, so it didn’t have any DIsney-isms yet.) They give you an earpiece and a little linking device, and you go through the exhibit in a defined path, linking your device to different terminals to “create your Star Wars character” by choosing a bunch of options at each. Along the way, EVERYTHING is on display. Costumes, models, props, concept art, blueprints, SO freakin’ cool.

    Never had more fun at an exhibit like this in my life. Guys, if you can go, FREAKIN’ GO. Seriously, GO. It’s a GREAT time!

    I went to something like this in San Jose, California. It was very cool. Lots of props. Even Luke’s full sized landspeeder. The space ship models were amazing. Much better than the recreations on display at Disneyland. Although, that’s still a pretty cool collection of ep. 1-7 stuff.

    I am so ridiculously excited about this. I saw this years ago (between TPM & AOTC) when it came to Bradford. It was thrilling then & will be even more so now. They set it up then so that you had to walk down a dark corridor to get to Vader. You got so far down in pitch black silence then as you got close the motion activated sensors started the breathing noise & the lights came on. People were screaming!

    I have seen this last Christmas in Austria… was surprised how small the exposition is. Most of the “artefacts” were in London 2006 but that was far far bigger and actually worth to be seen. This…….only if you never saw a Star Wars exposition..
