Star WarsIn the Toy Gallery
The six Star Wars films were revolutionary, particularly in their design and use of special effects, which enabled the Saga’s creator, George Lucas, to produce dazzlingly compelling and original imagery. This exhibition reveals the full scope of this extraordinary legacy passed down from generation to generation for thirty- five years. Their success was such that Star Wars™ is now embedded in popular culture and our collective memory. The exhibition, features a selection of four hundred toys and spin-off products generated by the films, all from the unique collection amassed by ScienceFictionArchives.com. Most of the objects come from the first trilogy. Today’s children will discover the toys their parents once played with, and also those produced by Hasbro for the prequels. Star Wars was also a turning point in graphic design linked to Heroic Fantasy and science fiction. For the public at the time, the original poster for Star Wars was an iconic image opening up a completely new imaginary world.
