In anticipation of the latest “Star Wars”
film to be released in December,
that intergalactic saga will come alive inside
the shiny fortress of
Roppongi Hills Mori Tower.
You may not be able to spot the Death Star
from the Sky Deck, but you can see “Star Wars-” inspired artworks by 100
artists, all handpicked by George Lucas. This will be the first time the works
have been shown to the public.
In addition to the art, more than 100
costumes and props used in the production of “Return of the Jedi,” have been
brought over from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. Titled “Vision,” the
exhibition marks the first of many events to be held at theremodeled Tokyo
City View observation deck, which is scheduled to reopen at the end of April.
The Star Wars Exhibition will be held from April 29-June 28, 2015 at Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. Visit the website for more information.
