star wars "identities" exhibition (0 comments)
after having a "star wars" marathon in november, watching episode I to VI in the correct chronological plot order, and watching the latest movie of the sequel trilogy "The Force Awakens" in december, the next logical step of course was to attend the stars wars "identities" exhibition. it was hosted in vienna from 18th of december 2015 to the 16th of april 2016. so we made it there on the 15th of april 2016. just in time. i did not bring my camera, so all pictures are made with my mobile phone. quality is bad, but you get the idea.
right at the entrance you were asked to create your own avatar, and the first step was to choose a race. so all the people were queuing for humans and other boring stuff, while surprisingly, there was no one aiming for the awesome gungans. well, my first choice of course was to be a gungan - what else. nina chose to be an ewok. almost equally awesome. but also, no one seemed to go for them. humans are strange...
in fact jar jar binks[05-06] is so cool, that the designers of the exhibition chose to introduce him right at the beginning. i was really happy. nina was also very happy and totally liked jar jar.
next highlight was the original princess lea bikini prop, right next to the carbon frozen han solo prop; how appropriate.
conclusion: the exhibition is a nice add-on when it comes to background information and a good summary of several topics. also the focus on your own decisions and how they affect others and yourself are nicely worked in. so if you get the chance to see it, do it.
