• Legoland Florida will add Star Wars to Miniland

      Legoland Florida will expand its Miniland area to include "Star Wars" scenes in November, General Manager Adrian Jones announced Thursday.



      The addition will include seven clusters to represent the six films and the animated TV series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

      Unveiled Thursday were Lego models of the Millennium Falcon spaceship and villain Darth Maul from the TV show. More than 1.5 million bricks will be used in the new areas, Jones said.

      The "Star Wars" scenes will be arranged in a chronological path, Jones said. The models will be set up behind the New York section of Miniland, which is currently a grassy patch across from the entrance of the Coastersaurus roller coaster.

      Legoland California has a Star Wars display in its Miniland. It includes seven of the most famous scenes from the live-action Star Wars movies, as well as a scene from the TV series.

      "Star Wars" has been a force in Central Florida theme parks and attractions for years.

      Disney's Hollywood Studios is the host of an annual Star Wars Weekends event and features a Star Tours ride year-round, and the Star Wars Celebration fan gathering recently wrapped up its second meeting of the past three years at the Orange County Convention Center. Next month, an exhibit called "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination" will open at Orlando Science Center.

      Legoland Florida opened last October on the grounds of the former Cypress Gardens attraction. It opened a water park this spring.
