In the Star Wars universe, would you have been a Twi’lek hunter? A Jedi Wookiee knight? Or maybe an Ewok fighter pilot? At the Star Wars Identities exhibition, each visitor was able to compose their own personal hero. By questioning identity’s creation through two emblematic figures of the saga, Luke and Anakin Skywalker, this complex subject was exposed in an interactive and playful way.

In 2014, France was the first European country to host the interactive exhibition Star Wars Identities. In Paris, La Cité du Cinéma set up 2,000-square-meter film sets, and in Lyon the cultural area La Sucrière opened its doors.


Developed and produced by X Productions of Montreal in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition explored human identity science through all saga’s characters. 200 originals were on loan from the Skywalker Ranch in California and the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. Some of them had never been exhibited to the public before. Anakin’s life-size podracer, ship models, sketches and costumes were able to recreate the universe of the saga.

200 costumes and models involved in the saga are on display, even Darth Vader is exposed!
