Description

These are the droids <i>Star Wars</i> fans are looking for, or at least some of the props and other ephemera-including robot costumes for C-3PO and R2D2-from all six of the <i>Star Wars</i> films. "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination," delves into the futuristic technologies seen in the franchise and what possibility they have of becoming real-landspeeder races, anyone? The "Living on Tatooine" section offers an interactive re-creation of Luke Skywalker's desert home planet. It would seem unlikely to have a long line, but the use of augmented reality to allow guests to interact with a simulation of Tatooine's environment suggests that some of that cool future is already here.
