What’s your Star Wars character? Find out at a new exhibition at the O2

By Cath Clarke

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for a snazzy new interactive exhibition of more than 200 original 'Star Wars' props and costumes at the O2 in November. And what's really special is that you'll be able to create your very own 'Star Wars' character. 

'Star Wars Identities' will explore every corner of George Lucas's massive universe, focusing on the psychology of the characters and allowing visitors to discover their own 'Star Wars' identity. When you arrive, you'll be given a wristband that collects electronic data as you tour the show. There'll be ten stations to swipe your wristband and answer a series of questions about the forces that shape you. We hear that the questions get pretty personal: What's important to you? Who do you look up to? Who do you hang out with? There's even an option to cross to the dark side! 

At the end of the exhibition, your own personalised 'Star Wars' character is displayed on a screen. You'll belong to one of 16 species. You might be a Jedi Knight or an Ewok, but no two characters are the same. 

The memorabilia on display includes Darth Vader's terrifying original costume, parts and costumes for C-3PO and R2-D2, the iconic bikini worn by Princess Leia, Jabba the Hutt's eyes (poor Jabba, his mechanical eyes are all that's left of him) and the full-size statue of Han Solo encased in Carbonite. 

'Star Wars Identities' opens at The O2 on November 18 2016. Tickets are on sale from tomorrow, September 30.
