Star Wars fans in the U.K. may want to plan a day trip to visit the National Portrait Gallery in London
Just in time for The Mandalorian to return for season 2 on Disney+, Star Wars fans in the U.K. are getting a very special exhibit of art. And while there is an entire collection dedicated to the franchise, you know we are here for the fact that there is an actual portrait featuring Baby Yoda!
If ever there was a time when we might wish that international travel for pleasure was allowed, this would be it. Not only is there currently a Star Wars themed exhibit being featured at London’s National Portrait Gallery, but it seems that it is free too. However, if you are in the U.K. and you’re a Star Wars fan, this is the perfect time to make the trip to London’s West End.
According to Entertainment Weekly, there is an oil painting titled The Mandalorian and the Child, which leave all the Baby Yoda fans excited. Of course, that is not the only picture in the exhibit, as this showing is meant to be a celebration of how Star Wars is linked to the history of British film.
Star Wars will want to head to London for an epic art exhibit
Not only does the exhibit feature stunning works of art crafted with oil paints, but fans will even get to see concept art from the franchise that was created by Christian Alzman, John Park, and Doug Chiang.
Wondering who else besides The Mandalorian himself and of course the Child are represented in the exhibit? Other notable characters featured include Jyn Erso as played by Felicity Jones in Rogue One, Obi-Wan Kenobi as played by Alec Guinness (the man who originated the role), and Thandie Newton’s Val from the movie Solo, to name a few.
If you are a fan of Star Wars as a whole, or even just obsessed with The Mandalorian, then now is absolutely the time to make this happen. While you need a ticket to get in, viewing the exhibit is free. And since the display is happening in time for season 2, that means you need to head to The National Portrait Gallery on either Oct. 30 or 31 in order to enjoy this epic, once in a lifetime opportunity.
Is anyone else wishing they could fly to London for a trip to the National Portrait Gallery? If you are in the U.K. will you be day tripping it to see the exhibit? Tell us what you think in the comments.
