    In addition, visitors will have a chance to get up-close to some of the real-world technologies inspired by the ingenuity and forward-thinking that?s at the heart of Star Wars.

    Great! I'm really looking forward to it! I attending the SW: Magic of Myth event at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts a few years back and had a great time. :)

    Yep, we'll be there all weekend, and every Saturday for the run of the show...except 4th of July weekend, cause we'll be busy with CONvergence. :)

    What has everyone thought of the exhibit? I went yesterday and I thought it was great! While I loved Magic of Myth which i saw at MIA and the Smithsonian, it was really cool seeing the connections between the films and actual technological developments. What do you all think?
