Who would you be if you were a character from Star Wars? Are you a Yoda or more of a Darth Vader?

Fans of the galactic series will be given the opportunity to discover the forces that shape them and the Star Wars character they most identify with in Star Wars Identities.

The interactive adventure into the Star Wars galaxy will premier in Australia at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney on November 16

It is designed for visitors of all ages and uses technology and expertise in the fields of neuropsychology, psychology and biochemistry, interwoven with a collection of more than 200 original artefacts, costumes, and props from the Lucasfilm archives, to lead Star Wars fans on a personal identity quest.

Visitors will be invited to explore their own identity and learn about the forces that shape them as they move through a series of interactive stations.

Each station will provide insights that help museum guests define a unique Star Wars character they create and meet at the end of the exhibition. Will your choices lead you on a path to the dark side of the Force? Are you a Wookiee Jedi Knight? Or maybe an Ewok with fighter-pilot skills?

Along the way rare treasures from the Lucasfilm archives and original costumes, props, models and artworks will be on display, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the movie-making process. There’s BB-8, R2-D2, the Millennium Falcon, Yoda from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader’s suit from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and  more.

The first chance to experience Star Wars Identities will be at MAASive Lates: Galaxies on November 15. This special adults-only night will feature space experts and activities, a Zero Gravity Space lab, prizes for the best costumes and an exclusive opportunity to experience the exhibition before it opens to the public.

The exhibition will run until June 10, 2019. Tickets are on sale for sessions through to the end of February at ticketek.com.au
