Join LEGOLAND® Parks to Celebrate the Tribute to the Live-Action Movies Before it Departs
ISKANDAR PUTERI, 14 November 2019 - Come seek the Force at the LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland model display at LEGOLAND as we say goodbye! For 5 years, millions of LEGOLAND guests around the world have enjoyed experiencing the iconic saga by seeing scenes from each of the seven live-action STAR WARS™ movies replicated in 1:20 scale using more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks.
“Since opening in 2014, the LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland model display has been popular for children and their parents,” said Kurt Stocks, General Manager at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort. “We are thrilled we were able to bring this generational experience to our guests and hope those who have yet to see it, or want to revisit with their friends, will come experience it before it leaves us in December and we prepare to build new memorable experiences for guests.”
The LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland model display has taken park guests through scenes featuring eight planets: Naboo, with its capital city, Theed and the Royal Palace, home to Queen Amidala; Geonosis, where Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker battle three ferocious creatures in the Geonosis execution arena; Kashyyk, where the Droid Army’s amphibious assault on the home planet of Chewbacca and the Wookiees is depicted; Mustafar, where the fateful duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker takes place; Tatooine, where you’ll find the Cantina where Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi first meet up with Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon and his co-pilot Chewbacca; Hoth, where the Empire sends massive walkers to attack the Echo Base and while Luke’s snowspeeder has crashed, the young Jedi is seen using his lightsaber to single-handedly bring down a giant AT-AT; Endor, the forest moon which is home to the Ewoks and these small but resourceful creatures join forces with the Rebel Alliance to destroy the shield generator and prevent completion of the second Death Star; and Jakku, it is on this desert planet where Resistance pilot Poe Dameron receives a map to Luke’s location and Stormtroopers commanded by Kylo Ren raid the village and capture Poe before she escapes in a stolen TIE fighter with Finn.
The individual film scenes were selected in close consultation with Lucasfilm Ltd. and drawings of the figures, spacecraft, vehicles, landscapes, etc. were taken as the basis for the detailed construction blueprints. STAR WARS sounds, actions and lighting effects help to make the models more lifelike.
The LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland model display is leaving LEGOLAND Parks on 31st December 2019, so be sure to catch it before it’s off to a galaxy far, far away!
