For thirty-five years, audiences around the world have followed the adventures of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, the Jedi heroes of a galaxy far, far away. And now, a new exciting exhibition, The Star Wars Identities Exhibit, comes to our own galaxy with Star Wars Identities, a redefined modern exhibition experience in which we will rediscover the unforgettable characters of Star Wars in a whole new way.
Star Wars Identities Exhibit
Canadian agency Bleublancrouge has done a very nice job with promoting the exhibit. Their six illustrated exhibition posters, video teaser and now, a new tv spot are all nicely done (and all shown in this post).

Canadian ad agency Bleublancrouge also created the inkblot Vader image and video teaser for the exhibit:
The exhibit’s marquee image – the inkblot Darth Vader – quickly captivated the StarWars.com readers when it was first revealed last November (shown above), accompanied by this teaser spot for the exhibit:
Bleublancrouge is also one of three companies that make up X3 Productions (the exhibit’s licensee), has created several new character portraits for the campaign, which are showcased below.
The illustrations were inspired by the individuality of each character, by what makes them who they are; Yoda, Darth Vader, Amidala, C-3PO, Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper:

This new innovative exhibition with interactive displays, original costumes, props and concept art, was made possible by Lucasfilm Ltd. and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions. It makes use of an extensive collection from the Lucasfilm Archives to explore the sciences of identity through the characters of Star Wars.
