11 Exclusive Photos From 'Star Wars and the Power of Costume: The Exhibition'
Star Wars and the Power of Costume: The Exhibition
From the getup of a classic Ewok to the new BB-8 droid, costumes and props from decades of Star Wars movies are going on display in New York City's Times Square. Opening in Discovery Times Square on Nov. 14, Star Wars and the Power of Costume: The Exhibition is a partnership between Discovery, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and Lucasfilm, and features dozens of artifacts from the iconic films.
"Craftsmanship and artistry in costume design are valued creative components in the Star Wars saga,” George Lucas said in a release. "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. 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—to inspire the imagination."
Ahead, 11 exclusive photos from the expansive exhibit.
