LEGOLAND Florida’s LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens MINILAND Model Display premiered on May the 4th, and we have an in-depth look at the new model and some of the celebrations found at LEGO Star Wars Days.
As part of LEGO Star Wars Days, LEGOLAND Florida created a model of the seven most famous scenes from the six live-action “Star Wars” movies, as well as a scene from the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” The complete display was made entirely out of 1.5 million LEGO bricks, built in 1:20 scale.
WATCH – UP CLOSE WITH THE LEGO STAR WARS DISPLAY:
Six exciting scenes from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” are set on the planet of Jakku, including: Kylo Ren’s capture of Poe; Rey’s rescue of BB-8; Poe and Finn’s escape from the Star Destroyer Finalizer; 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.
As part of the park’s new addition, the model also includes life-sized LEGO models of Darth Maul, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and Darth Vader.
The special galactic event is included with general park admission, including all of its activities. In addition to touring the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens MINILAND Model Display, activities include:
