Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition, the largest intergalactic-themed demo, is coming to London's The O2 in November and will run long through September 2017.

For almost 40 years now, the adventures of Anakin and Luke Skywalker have been well followed by fans of the world's most renowned father-and-son tandem. Now, the biggest event devoted to the sci-fi movie franchise, "Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition" was confirmed by its creators to fly to London.

Through years of entertaining and educating "Star Wars" fans, this year's display of "Star Wars" arts and science is described to be a lot more improved than the previous events. Producers are expected to showcase a redefined modern exhibition experience in which visitors will rediscover the unforgettable characters of "Star Wars" in a whole new way.

The Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition, developed and produced by Montreal's X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm, makes use of the world's biggest archive collection of movie materials from former Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to let fans from different parts of the world to explore the sciences of identity behind the characters of the "Star Wars."

Creators of the exhibit are said to parade more than 200 props, models, costumes -- including bounty hunter Boba Fett's armour and various Stormtroopers -- and artworks that will go on display to let the fans get up close to the characters of the original "Star Wars" trilogy, the prequels and TV show "Clone Wars."

The unique traveling exhibition aims to expose the complex notion of the identity of the "Star Wars" with visitors taken on an interactive identity quest, leaving with their own personalized and unique "Star Wars" character.

"This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of 'Star Wars.' We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own," said Jacques-André Dupont, president and executive producer of X3 Productions. "The collection, the interactive components, and the scientific content work hand in hand here to create a seamless and exciting experience for our visitors. It's a character-driven adventure into identity," he added.

The exhibitions runs from Nov. 18, 2016 to Sept. 3, 2017 with tickets available through online ticket booking of The O2. Ticket sales start Friday, Sept. 30.

Alongside this "Star Wars" event is the announcement of the new film in the franchise, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," set for release in December, leading to predictions of a new blockbuster record for the upcoming movie.

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn and Diego Luna. The film is set before the events of the original 1977 "Star Wars" film "Episode IV: A New Hope."
