• Legoland to Expand Star Wars Area

      As part of a multiattraction expansion this spring, Legoland California plans to update the Star Wars Miniland area that debuted last summer, add a pirate-themed shoot-the-chutes water ride and install a crab exhibit at the adjacent SeaLife Aquarium.


      Set to open March 29, the Star Wars Gallery will include 3-foot-tall Lego models of a dozen characters from the epic film saga, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2D2, Yoda and Darth Vader.

      At the same time, model builders will install new characters, weapons and spacecraft to existing Star Wars Miniland scenes rendered in 1:20 scale using Lego bricks.


      Among the new additions to the Lego-fied "Star Wars" scenes:

      --Rebel soldiers trapped in a net set by Ewoks in Endor.

      --A Starfighter hovering over a landing pad in Mustafar.

      --Three AT-RT walkers on a reconnaissance mission on Kshyyyk.
      --An Ion Cannon firing a particle beam on Hoth.

      --A Sandcrawler trolling across the sands of Tatooine.
