Featuring 70 hand-crafted 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 imagined and created a fantastical world filled with dynamic characters who told the 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.
The New York debut of the exhibit will feature seven additional costumes from the highly anticipated film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Hours of Operation: Sun - Tues 10:00AM - 7:00PM, Wed - Thurs 10:00AM-8:00PM, Fri-Sat 10:00AM - 9:00PM. Final Entry 45 Minutes Prior to Closing. Please visit discoverytsx.com for most up-to-date hours of operation.
