DENVER (CBS4) – You don’t have to travel to a desert planet in a galaxy far, far away to see Star Wars.

It’s on display now at the Denver Art Museum, in “Star Wars and the Power of Costume.”

Putting it together wasn’t easy, though, and took a lot of time. Far more than the 23 seconds they condensed it down to in this video:

The exhibit is intended to show not only the historic context and influences of the Star Wars costumes, but how they progressed from conception to finished product, including those of the dreaded Sith Lords, Chewbacca, X-Wing Pilots, C-3P0 and R2-D2, and more.

More than 70 original costumes, those worn by the actors in the movies, to the concept art and props, and hundreds of pieces of Star Wars memorabilia are on display, many of them unique to the exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.

Hands on opportunities, and special hidden treasures found just at the right height, are also available for kids.
