Today, LEGOLAND® Florida announced that the new LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland Model Display will officially open to guests on Friday, November 9.
The new LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland will include a scene from each of the six live-action Star WarsTM 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. 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.
Legoland Florida has sent us a press release along with photos and videos regarding the arrival of several major models that will soon take up residence in the Lego Star Wars Miniland, set to open on November 9th, 2012.
Construction is underway on the newest expansion at LEGOLAND® Florida. Massive LEGO® Star WarsTM models such as the Lambda Shuttle, an iconic spacecraft found in Episode VI Return of the Jedi, have arrived at LEGOLAND Florida and model builders are busy making final adjustments and constructing the animations that are being installed in Miniland USA’s new cluster, LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland Model Display.
“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 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.
In addition to the amazing LEGO models found in the park, Central Florida’s newest theme park provides a full two day experience for families with children ages 2 to 12. The latest expansion of the LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area is scheduled to open November 9.

Today Robb and Elissa had the chance to attend a unique grand opening event for the new Star Wars Miniland Expansion at Legoland Florida. This new expansion located in the already fantastic Miniland section of the park features seven unique areas, each themed to one of the six films along with one section dedicated to the Clone Wars show. In attendance at today's event were a number of Darth Vaders, making for some unique photo opportunities as you'll see below... Let's take a look!
Welcome back to the beautiful Legoland Florida!
Park General Manager Adrian Jones led the ceremony once again, welcoming the media to this exciting new expansion for the park.
They used a lightsaber to cut the ribbon! How awesome is that?
If you haven't realized this by now, I'm a huge Star Wars geek and truly wish I was there at this event...
I really can't wait to check this out myself!
The Clone Wars section is huge and has interactive elements built into the displays!
Well that's something you don't see everyday!
Here we see both Tatooine and Hoth represented in Lego form. If you remember from our interview with Adrian Jones at the Lego Star Wars Miniland announcement, the Millenium Falcon was his favorite part of the project.
Remember Geonosis from Episode II: Attack of the Clones?
How about Naboo from Episode 1: A Phantom Menace?
The iconic coliseum scene from Attack of the Clones.
It is just like my Bar Mitzvah!
Elissa, you have no idea how jealous I am right now!
My jealousy is seriously growing by the second!
Back to the Endor moon from Episode VI: Return of the Jedi!
And that awesome Darth Maul model we saw from the announcement has found his home in Lego Star Wars Miniland!
And what better note to close on than with the Wampa.
Seriously folks, if you are Star Wars fans you have one extra reason to get out to Legoland Florida!
