For many, the attraction of Star Wars is "the deep mythology that spans across all of these stories," said Zaller.

"You have your classic set-ups between the hero and the villain, between good and evil. And you've always got your underdog who somehow finds a way. We all find ourselves in that place in our lives where we wonder which path we're going to choose, so the stories are very relatable."
The exhibition "is really an exhibition that celebrates the fans themselves and their love of this genre," Zaller added.
The Fans Strike Back will run through June.
