Discovery Times Square has teamed with the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art (LMoNA) and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) to bring a temporary Star Wars exhibition to New York.

Taken from the collection of the upcoming LMoNA – George Lucas’s legacy project – Star Wars and the Power of Costume: The Exhibition showcases the costumes from the legendary franchise displayed in equally iconic settings. Among the attire on display are outfits which in many cases created the character, such as Darth Vader, C-3P0, Princess Leia and the Stormtrooper army.

“The detailed precision of a design can be as bold a measure of storytelling as words on a page, leading to truths at the core of a character, situation or shared history,” said George Lucas.

“From initial concept drawings to complex physical constructions, the costumes featured in this exhibition serve to further define crucial aspects of worlds created to move, educate and entertain us, and to inspire the imagination.”

More than 70 iconic costumes, as well as many artefacts from the first six films are on display, in addition to costumes and props from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, coming out in December. The exhibition is set across 15 galleries, and includes concept drawing from each film as well as short films offering a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of Star Wars, with interviews from artists, designers and actors. The exhibition also features a virtual experience by Platige Image, which uses CG imagery, 3D animation and digital special effects to present visitors wearing one of the iconic costumes.

“There is not a more iconic entertainment property than Star Wars”, said James Sanna, president of Discovery Times Square. “We’re thrilled to host this exciting new exhibit which will connect Star Wars fans to not only iconic costumes and artefacts from the first six films, but also introduces them to the next exciting chapter of the Star Wars saga.”

The exhibition opened to the public this month and will be on view until 5 September 2016. Discovery Times Square is also host to several other temporary exhibitions, including Hunger Games: The Exhibition, which Attractions Management recently covered in an in-depth feature.
