NEW YORK - The ending credits may have rolled on Star Wars The Force Awakens, but there's still more to see.

We're talking about a one-of-a-kind display, 70 costumes from the first six Star Wars movies.

You don't have to travel to a galaxy far far away to see them.  The 10,000 square-foot exhibit is located in Manhattan's theater district.

"Star Wars and the Power of Costume the Exhibition tells the story of the entire Star Wars Saga," said Teresa Brady with Discovery Times Square.

It's a behind-the-scenes tour that gives fans a chance to hear and see the star wars plot unfold from the perspective of the characters' wardrobe.

"You will learn what role costume played in telling the story of these characters," Brady said.

Seeing more familiar characters such as Darth Vader and Yoda is always a treat, but even new droid BB8 makes a debut.

The exhibit also gives fans a chance at life imitating art, thanks to an interactive mirror that transforms you into a character when you step in front of it.  This kind of technology gives a literal meaning to 'may the force be with you.'
