Millennium Falcon Lands at LEGOLAND®

There are things that just go together. Much like peanut butter and jelly, so does Star Wars and Lego Bricks. With the recent announcement that LEGOLAND® California is introducing an all-new, dedicated STAR WARS Miniland, it’s time to channel the force for some fun. Especially when you see just how big the Millennium Falcon is.

Following a chronological path through the STAR WARS timeline, LEGOLAND guests 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. “Our guests have really enjoyed our LEGO STAR WARS Days over the years and we’re certain this new area is going to ignite the imaginations of adults and children alike,” said General Manager of LEGOLAND California, Peter Ronchetti. “We are opening this STAR WARS Miniland display just in time for spring break.”

Photos of the Falcon and additional thoughts after the break.

So when I first saw this picture I was like: “Okay it looks pretty big”; then I saw the next picture:

They need to use a fork lift to bring this thing over. That’s some model.

Overall, I’m pretty excited about Star Wars coming to LEGOLAND® California. With more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks being used to build the 2,000 models. This seems like it’s going to be a ton of fun. Actually, the total weight of bricks is 1.3 tons.

Are you excited about Star Wars coming to LEGOLAND® California? What model do you want to see?
