The exhibit features artwork, costumes, props, models, and character art used in the concept and production of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the first-ever animated feature and television series from Lucasfilm Animation, now in its second season on Cartoon Network.
Animation scale models introduce visitors to The Clone Wars and the process by which its characters and worlds were created, designed, and brought to life. A single-scale model, known as a maquette, illuminates how a character concept can translate from an idea, to an actor, to a sculpture, and finally to the screen.
Framed digital prints of original Clone Wars art and environments allow visitors a look into worlds beyond the stars. Life-sized flats of Anakin, Yoda, Ahsoka, and other Star Wars characters stand in poses allowing children (and adults!) unique opportunities to pose for photos with their favorite Clone Wars characters. In addition, props from the live action feature films are on display to illustrate how physical designs were incorporated into the unique look of the animated series.
The animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series covers an exciting era in the Star Wars saga, taking place between Episodes II and III. As the Clone Wars sweep through the galaxy, the heroic Jedi Knights struggle to maintain order and restore peace. Led by Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the heroic forces of the Galactic Republic valiantly resist the evil Count Dooku and his sinister Separatist agents. New episodes of the animated television series can be seen each Friday at 9 p.m. on Cartoon Network.
