On Friday, May 4, Legoland Florida Resort will unveil its Lego “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Miniland model display in the center of their outdoor Lego display area in the park.
Created by a team of Master Model Builders, this giant display will feature six memorable moments from the film, enhanced with sound effects, lights and animation. The model addition includes the 16-foot-long Star Destroyer Finalizer, made of over 350,000 Lego bricks.
The six scenes on display will feature the planet of Jakku, and include Kylo Ren’s capture of Poe Dameron; Poe and Finn’s escape from the Star Destroyer Finalizer; Rey’s rescue of BB-8; the wreck of Finn and Poe’s Tie Fighter; Rey, Finn and BB-8’s escape from Niima Outpost; and the escape from the Starship Graveyard.
Just in time for the installation of the display, Legoland Florida Resort will also debut the appearance of Lego Captain Phasma for their Lego Star Wars Days event, which begins on Saturday, May 5.
