LEGOLAND Florida is making preparations to debut its latest addition to MINILAND, an all-new area based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Created by a team of Master Model Builders, the giant display will feature memorable moments from Episode VII of the popular Star Wars saga enhanced with lights, sound effects and animation. The model addition includes the 16-foot-long Star Destroyer Finalizer, made of more than 350,000 LEGO bricks.

The area also features six scenes set on the planet of Jakku, from Star Wars: The Force Awakens which include: 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.

LEGOLAND will also be debuting a new meet and greet character for LEGO Star Wars Days. Captain Phasma will be making her debut at the event.

This exclusive LEGOLAND event begins May 5 and runs for three consecutive weekends – more event days than ever before.  All activities are included with all forms of park admission. No extra ticket or Jedi mind tricks required for the only LEGO® Star Wars theme park event in Central Florida.

We will be there this weekend to check out all of the festivities!
