Leia, Luke and you

Tell your kids to bring their lightsabers. They’ll no doubt be welcome at Star Wars Identities, which makes its world premiere at Old Montreal’s Science Centre, April 19 through September 16. The blockbuster exhibit will feature 200 costumes, models and props from the Lucasfilm archives, including Darth Vader’s armour — which, admit it, the thought of makes you say, “Luke, I am your father” silently in your head — Anakin Skywalker’s full-sized Podracer and a model of the Millennium Falcon spacecraft. Its central theme is human identity and videos (developed with experts in genetics, neuropsychology and psychology) combined with Star Wars clips explain how 10 components — species, genes, parents, mentors, friends, personality, culture, events, occupation and values — affect who we — the fictional characters of Star Wars and the visitors themselves — are. Techy touches include RFID bracelets that’ll track each visitor’s responses to questions throughout; at the end, everyone will meet their own Star Wars alter ego. The exhibit jets off to Edmonton’s Telus World of Science, it’s only other North American stop, October 27 through April 1, 2013. Adults $23 to $26.50, teens 13 to 17 and students $20 to $23.50, kids $13.50 to 16.50. starwarsidentities.com.
