Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition is an exhibition that serves as an interactive experience mainly exploring the characters of Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker. The characters are scrutinized by three major themes: their origins, the influences that shaped them, and the choices they made during their lives. This also touches on characters such as R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, and how their individual relations and roles affected Luke and Anakin.

The exhibition also explores the factors that shape an individual, such as genetics and familial and social influences, using the Star Wars universe as background. The visitor is invited to create an original Star Wars character based on him- or herself, temporarily stored to a smart-technology bracelet or keycard, by interacting with ten stations throughout the exhibit. For example, by the first station where the visitor chooses a race (based on a selection of fifteen Star Wars races) and gender, genetics is explored as an influence.

Items in the exhibition include original props used for filming, models for special effects, costumes worn by the actors, original concept art, and production notes for the films and later productions such as Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The exhibition ran at the Montreal Science Center in Montreal, Quebec, from April 19 to September 16, 2012; the TELUS World of Science - Edmonton in Edmonton, Alberta, from October 27, 2012, to April 1, 2013; and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa, Ontario, from May 10 to October 14, 2013. It was slated to tour through Europe once it left Canada and was in Paris, France, at Luc Besson's La Cité du Cinéma, in 2014. From November 18, 2016, it will be at The O2 in London, UK.
