London Film Museum: Star Wars Special

  It seems kind of ironic that the highlight of the London Film Museum for most visitors is a Hollywood production! The main reason Richard Richard and I went there was to get our photo taken with droids C3P0 and R2D2 on a Star Wars set called the Rebel Blockade Runner, a.k.a. the Tantive IV which featured in ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope’.

The cost of this was not included in the entrance fee so you have to cough up £7 for one photo or you can get two for a tenner. We went for the latter. The photographer will take a load of photos and then you select the ones you want but you can only get the copies in printed format. We scanned the photos when we got home and Richard Richard added the colour to the lightsabers.


There are plenty of other Star Wars exhibits on display such as Han Solo in carbonite (from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’), Boba Fett, Darth Vader and stormtrooper mannequins, lightsaber and air-blaster props, production storyboards, behind the scenes photos and so on.
