For my partner's birthday, I purchased tickets to Star Wars Identities The Exhibition, which is being held at the 02 Arena in London until September 2017.
None of us really knew what to expect, but I'm so so pleased to say it did not disappoint! If you're planning on going, then I would suggest you stop reading here as the images below will ruin the surprise for you! If you're just interested to hear more, with a maybe of going - GO and here's what you can expect.
Tickets for Star Wars Identities cost £20 for an adult with entry to the exhibition starts at 10 am with the last slot at 6 pm, I chose the 10 am slot as I wanted to be first! Yes, I'm admitting that to you guys, I wanted to have as much time to look around as possible - I didn't need 8 hours! We actually did the exhibition in an hour and a half and that was listening to everything and reading every poster!
When you enter the exhibition you are given an earpiece and a wristband - the wristband is very important! The very enthusiastic and welcoming staff lead you to a screen which explains how to use your earpiece and what to do with your wristband.
To find out your identity, you follow the route of the exhibition which shows you such wonders from the Star Wars world starting with the droids of BB-8 and R2-D2 and the very impressive Stormtroopers.
As you walk around there are various audio spots for you to stop and listen to facts and watch snippets from the films, the actors and the film crew.
Your wristband is used to select the answers to various questions around the exhibition which at the end gives you your identity. It's this interactive element that I feel gives the exhibition the added excitement and has everyone chatting and discussing characters, planets and personality traits.
Along with costumes and character models, there are some really beautiful pieces of artwork and various sketches, my favourite showing the many faces of Yoda before settling on the lovable green character we've come to know and love.
There is so much to see, and far too much for me to list, plus I really don't want to spoilt it too much, but want to say to prepare yourself for the last section of the exhibition. For this is filled with dark forces with the main man himself waiting at the end for you.
It really is a great exhibition and a must for any Star Wars fans!
Once you've had a good look around, gone back to a few things, read a few more facts the last stop is to find out your identity.
Me, I'm a Female Human - as I'm not the hugest of Star Wars fans, this didn't come to a surprise to me. My son is a Wookie and his father is a Male Zabrak
