The “tiniest” part of LEGOLAND Florida is about to grow as big as a galaxy far, far away as the theme park today announced Star Wars Miniland is on the way. Just six months after a similar expansion opened at LEGOLAND California, the Winter Haven park has now revealed plans to bring the Force to Florida.

The addition to the already popular Miniland area of the park will feature millions of LEGO bricks creating recognizable and interactive scenes on a smaller scale from all six “Star Wars” films as well as “The Clone Wars” TV series. Star Wars Miniland is scheduled to open at LEGOLAND Florida on November 9, 2012.

A new meet-and-greet with LEGO Darth Vader will also be added to the park, along with plenty of life-sized LEGO Star Wars character sculptures. The expansion announcement comes just two weeks after Central Florida was already feeling the Force during the four-day Star Wars Celebration VI convention, which featured several official LEGO “Star Wars” displays, some of which were similar to what LEGOLAND Florida has planned.

Of course, “Star Wars” fans can currently get their fill at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, just 45 minutes from LEGOLAND Florida, where Walt Disney World visitors already enjoy daily trips aboard Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.

Beyond the “Star Wars” universe, rumors of a large pirate-themed expansion of LEGOLAND Florida were put to rest, for now, as the park’s general manager Adrian Jones flat out denied having seen plans being circulated (leaked?) online. For now, they are pleased to announce their newest adventures will involve one of the most popular film franchises in history.

    Will this Lego park ever feature a uniek land/attraction compared to the other lego parks. For now they just get up to speed to the state of the current parks over the world. This beeing in Florida should be more spectecular. As a international traveler I already visited the gardens in the past and don’t feel the need to visit it because it feels like a lesser park then the German and Denmark versions I’ve been to.

    Doesn’t Disney own the exclusive rights to Star Wars in theme parks? Maybe they’re allowed to build it since it’s not a massive expansion or project? Just seems odd to me…
