In preparation for a Star Wars exhibition which, ahem, explores the theme of personal identity in both ourselves and characters from the film, advertisers have released a series of stunning portraits. Each of the following posters, knocked out by ad agency Bleublancrouge, focuses on inspiration from a character's individuality, …
"The phantom menace was 18 months ago, Tim."
"I know Bilbo, but it still hurts."

Oh, and lest I forget:
"Ja Ja Binks makes the Ewoks look like fucking Shaft!"

The pics are kind of cool. The video is a lot of ink-blot type stuff, but has Star Wars images sort of hidden in it.
I know some local fans that will likely want to go. Me, I like SF, but I'm not really a Star Wars *fan*.

There's a ASCII text version of Star Wars. You'll have Google the correct URL. I think someone might have captured it to YouTube. It's just silly.

"Events that shaped them" bunch of guff.
So, these works are supposed to represent the characters' identities and the forces and events that shaped those personalities? And Darth Vader is made out of TIE fighters and the Death Star, because they are the forces that "shaped [him]"? Well I don't see any images of Padme in there, and I thought the whole story of the first three movies was about how his love for and loss of her was what turned him to the Dark Side. TIE fighters and Death Stars is what he became, not what made him that way in the first place. So I think it's a load of pretentious art-wank that utterly fails to do what it sets out to do and is deeply ignorant of the actual Star Wars universe mythos.
Pretty pictures, sure, but they don't contain what the publicity says they do.
Oh and while I'm on the topic of "the forces that shaped them"
Why doesn't the picture of Threepio show the rod that's up his ass?
