Like we said, UAU and ArtStation are the entities responsible for making Lisbon the 7th city in the world to host and fill a 1500m2 area at its Museu da Electricidade with this fantastic display of Star Wars magic, featuring over 280 original property and items from all of the saga's 6 movies, including concept artwork, production drawings and models, prototypes and wardrobe.

Other special features included at the expo are the 30 Years Of Special Effects retrospective (by Lucasfilm) and the Gateway to Science area presented by Roland Lehaucq (from the French Atomic Energy Comission), comparing Star Wars fantasy and fiction with actual scientific fact(s). There will also be the exhibition of all the six movies along with their respective 'Making Of' extras. Official Star Wars merchandising will be available to all attendees at several booths.

But this is not 'all'. Upon our insistence, M?nica Marques, an inside official, revealed that a few exclusive collectible items are to be expected on sale at the event too, without going into any further details, at the moment. Stay tuned for more info, when available.

With the saga's 30th anniversary fast approaching, this sure is the best way possible for every Portuguese fan and collector to commemorate accordingly!
Conforme dissemos, a UAU e a ArtStation s?o as entidades respons?veis por tornar Lisboa na 7? cidade mundial a apresentar e a encher uma ?rea de 1500m2 no seu Museu da Electricidade com toda a magia Star Wars, incluindo mais de 280 objectos e adere?os originais inclu?dos em todos os seis filmes da saga, juntamente com arte conceptual, desenhos e modelos da produ??o, prot?tipos e guarda-roupa.

Outros motivos de interesse inclu?dos na expo s?o a retrospectiva 30 Years Of Special Effects (pela Lucasfilm) e a ?rea Gateway To Science, apresentada pelo astrof?sico Roland Lehaucq (da Comiss?o de Energia At?mica Francesa) e que compara a fantasia e a fic??o em Star Wars com factos cient?ficos correntes e reais. Haver? igualmente a projec??o de todos os 6 filmes, juntamente com os respectivos 'Making Of'. Merchandising oficial estar? dispon?vel a todos os visitantes em Lojas Star Wars.

Mas isto n?o ? tudo. Perante a nossa insist?ncia, M?nica Mendes, uma representante oficial, revelou-nos que tamb?m s?o de esperar alguns coleccion?veis oficiais e exclusivos ? venda durante a exposi??o sem, contudo, poder para j? entrar em mais detalhes connosco. Mantenham-se atentos a este espa?o para mais novidades, quando dispon?veis.

Com a r?pida aproxima??o do anivers?rio dos 30 anos da saga, esta sem d?vida que ? a melhor forma poss?vel que todo o fan e coleccionador Portugu?s tem de comemorar condignamente!
