This Sunday I went to the Star Wars exhibition held at Turn&Taxis (link) here in Brussels with my brother.
It’s an exhibition that has been here several weeks now, this weekend was actually the second to last weekend to visit the expo. It showed items selected from the Lucas film Archives in Northern California, how characters, objects and sets were thought out. There were jedi-trainings for kids and you could act out a jedi fight scene in front of a blue screen (actually green) and a DVD could be burned on the spot for a prize of course.
The tour of this exhibition began in Portugal in 2006. I have no idea where it is off to after Brussels.
I did find that, and this was totally to be expected, that they made a lot of who-ha for this expo than it actually should get. Though it is fun to see the drawings (not enough I thought, cause some of them were incredible, as well as the storyboards for the several shown scenes) and the costumes and the props used… it was just an exhibition like most others. Not that interactive. For kids yes, the jedi lessons and the fights on-screen. But as an adult, it almost seemed like you were left out, as a fan.
