Discover your identity in a Galaxy Far, Far Away, at the world tour of a Star Wars Exhibition that’s stopping by in Utrecht.

STAR WARS Identities is a redefined modern exhibition experience that will allow you to rediscover the unforgettable characters of Star Wars in a whole new way.

Collection from the Lucas Museum

Developed and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., STAR WARS Identities makes use of an extensive archive collection from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to explore the sciences of identity through the characters of Star Wars.

The stunning collection, a customised, interactive identity quest, and insightful scientific content all work together and follow the dramatic journeys of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, cinema’s most famous father and son duo.

What forces shape you?

Visitors will develop a better understanding of what makes the characters of Star Wars who they are, and at the same time explore their own identity with one question, at once simple and profound: What forces shape you?

Three major themes head this search: the origins of the characters, the influences that shape them, and the choices they make during their lives.

Within these three themes, ten components of human identity are explored:

  • Species, genes, parents, and culture in Origins
  • Mentors, friends, and marking events in Influences
  • Occupation, personality, and values in the final zone, Choices

A unique interactive experience will use technology to help visitors of all ages create their own personal and original Star Wars identity by incorporating elements of their own identity with fictional elements.

The Star Wars franchise

For almost 40 years, audiences around the world have followed the adventures of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, the Jedi heroes of a galaxy far, far away. The excitement and interest in these stories is sure to continue for many more generations, as new films are being released.

The rich collection in this exhibition spans the original Star Wars canon, drawing from the classic (1977-1983) and prequel (1999-2005) trilogies, the animated series The Clone Wars , as well as a few artefacts from Star Wars: The Force Awakens from 2015.

Fan favourites like Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda, and the Millennium Falcon, among many others, are sure to delight visitors of all generations.
