Very, very soon, Legoland will be deprived of the Force, with the eventual removal of the LEGO Star Wars Miniland displays set to take effect in all existing Legoland theme parks from January 6, 2020.
First debuting in 2011, the LEGO Star Wars Miniland displays have been a staple attraction in any Legoland across the world.
Legoland has worked in tandem with Lucasfilm to bring these 1:20-scale replicas of iconic scenes from the main Star Wars movies to life.
Each display consists of up to over 1.5 million LEGO bricks, and depict scenes from the main movies in all three trilogies, including the Battle of Hoth (The Empire Strikes Back), Naboo (The Phantom Menace), and Jakku (The Force Awakens).
Their removal will no doubt be a blow to both Star Wars fans, as well as the potential revenue to be made by Legoland collectively.
“Since opening in 2011 with additions made year after year, the Lego Star Wars Miniland model display has been popular for children and their parents,” said general manager of Legoland California Resort, Peter Ronchetti.
“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 Lego Star Wars Miniland before it leaves us in January and before we prepare to build new memorable experiences for guests.”
We’ll be missing the annual Lego Star Wars Days events at Legoland Malaysia since its last celebration back in 2018.
Regardless, there’s still plenty of excitement to be had as we draw closer to the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on December 19, with toys from Hasbro, The Mandalorian on Disney+, as well as the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game by EA.
