The newest expansion of LEGOLAND Florida will massive galaxies on a small scale as LEGO Star Wars models arrive to the theme park to be installed in Miniland USA’s new cluster, debuting next month. The new LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area will include a scene from each of the six live-action “Star Wars” movies, as well as a scene from the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” all created from more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks and built in 1:20 scale.
Following a chronological path through the Star Wars timeline, guests will retrace the major events of the beloved Saga. Some of the 2,000 LEGO® models will be more than 6-feet-tall. Interactive buttons will allow children to activate animations throughout the scenes.

“With over 1.5 million LEGO bricks to be constructed, this project required the assistance of our counterparts across the world. The LEGO Star Wars Miniland models were built in model shops in Germany and California. We have now received all 2,000 models that will make up the new Miniland USA cluster and have begun installation,” said Sam Dalessandro, Model Shop Supervisor at LEGOLAND Florida.
The LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area is scheduled to open November 9 and will be included with park admission.
