Featuring 70 handcrafted costumes from the first six blockbuster "Star Wars" films, this exhibition reveals the artists’ creative process — and uncovers the connection between character and costume. George Lucas created a fantastical world filled with dynamic characters who told a timeless story of the hero’s journey.
The costumes shaped the identities of these now famous characters, from the menacing black mask of Darth Vader and the gilded suit of C-3PO to the lavish royal gowns of Queen Amidala and a bikini worn by Princess Leia when enslaved by Jabba the Hutt. A special presentation for the showing at Discovery Times Square in New York will feature seven additional costumes from the highly anticipated film, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
