Here’s your chance to find out. Unleash your creativity as you build your personal and unique Star Wars Hero.


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.

From a scientific perspective, visitors learn how these components affect identity. Ten videos, one per component, combine clips from Star Wars with animated graphics explaining how each component plays a part in shaping who we are—“we” in this case referring simultaneously to the fictional characters of the Star Wars universe and to the visitors themselves.

These videos were developed in collaboration with the Montreal Science Centre and a team of experts practising in a variety of scientific fields, including genetics, neuropsychology, health sciences, and psychology.

The stunning collection of some 200 props, costumes, models, and pieces of artwork from the making of the films and animated series is integrated seamlessly into the exhibition’s structure.

Carefully selected from the Lucasfilm Archives, each object helps provide a deeper understanding of the identities of the Star Wars characters. The accompanying behind-the-scenes information is sure to delight fans of the films and visitors interested in the movie-making process.
