The Force is Strong in Toronto

As excitement continues to build for the highly anticipated seventh installment in the “Star Wars” saga, fans will have the opportunity to get a first look at some of the new characters from Lucasfilm’s upcoming, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” when Star Wars: The Force Awakens – The Toronto Exhibit opens in downtown Toronto for a limited 16-day run on December 5th.

Located on the Bell Media campus at 277 Queen Street West and open daily from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., the pop-up exhibit will give fans a small tease about the new film with five life-size replicas of Rey, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, BB-8 and a Stormtrooper.

 

The figures were created by Prop Shop, a London, UK-based company that created the official props used in the production of the film. The mini exhibit in Toronto is the only place in Canada where fans will be able to see the figures.

Other features in the pop-up exhibit include a BB-8 photo op and two limited edition exclusive t-shirts that will be available for purchase. Special guests, themed days, activities and giveaways will be revealed via social media over the duration of the exhibit and fans are encouraged to follow Walt Disney Studios Canada on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #TheForceAwakensTO for the latest news and details.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
