The Force is calling to you one last time at Legoland parks, as the Lego Star Wars Miniland model is set to be removed.
For eight years, millions of Legoland guests around the world have experienced the Star Wars saga through painstaking recreations from seven of the live-action “Star Wars” films, replicated in 1:20 scale with over 1.5 million Lego bricks.
“Since opening in 2011 with additions made year after year, the Lego Star Wars Miniland model display has been popular for children and their parents,” said Peter Ronchetti, general manager of Legoland California Resort. “We are thrilled we were able to bring this generational experience to our guests and hope those who have yet to see it, or want to revisit with their friends, will come experience Lego Star Wars Miniland before it leaves us in January and before we prepare to build new memorable experiences for guests.”
The model display features scenes on eight planets:
- Naboo, with its capital city Theed and the royal palace, home to Queen Amidala
- Geonosis, where Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker battle three fearsome creatures in the Geonosis execution arena
- Kashyyk, where the Droid Army’s assault on the Wookiee home planet is depicted
- Mustafar, where the duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin takes place
- Tatooine, where you’ll find the Cantina where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan first meet Han Solo and Chewbacca
- Hoth, where the Empire sends giant walkers to attack the Echo Base and Luke uses his lightsaber to bring down an AT-AT
- Endor, the forest moon that’s home to the Ewoks
- Jakku, the desert planet where Poe Dameron receives a map to Luke’s location and Stormtroopers commanded by Kylo Ten raid a village
These individual scenes were chosen in close consultation with Lucasfilm, and drawings of the figures, spacecraft, vehicles, landscapes and more were used as the basis for the construction blueprints. Each model also includes Star Wars sounds, actions, and lighting effects to bring the displays to life.
The Lego Star Wars Miniland model will be leaving Legoland parks on Jan. 6, 2020.
