LEGOLAND® California Event Invades Atascadero and San Francisco

The Force is getting even stronger at LEGOLAND® California as it adds a LEGO® Star Wars Gallery and expands the popular LEGO Star Wars Miniland! On Saturday, March 3 in Atascadero, and Saturday, March 10 in San Francisco, the family theme park is invading the Galaxy Colony10 Theater and the Westfield San Francisco Centre unveiling: a life-size LEGO Darth Maul; several three-foot tall LEGO models of favorite Star Wars characters such as Princess Leia, Han Solo, Boba Fett and Wicket; sample scenes from LEGO Star Wars Miniland; an opportunity to meet a LEGOLAND Master Model Builder plus chances to win tickets to LEGOLAND California Resort by answering Jedi Trivia!

At LEGOLAND California, guests can already enjoy seven of the most famous scenes from the six live-action Star Wars movies, as well as a scene from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars all made out of 1.5 million LEGO bricks and built in 1:20 scale. But on March 29, Star Wars and LEGO fans alike will be delighted to find even more detail in each episode. For example, in the Naboo area, guests will discover an "underwater" scene featuring an opee sea killer as it pursues Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn and Jar Jar Binks as they try to reach the city of Theed. Other new LEGO models include a Jawa sandcrawler in the Tatooine scene; Rebels caught in a net trap set by Ewoks on Endor; and a new crystal tower standing more than 6-feet-tall on Christophsis.

For the first time, guests will be further immersed into the Star Wars experience as they walk through the LEGO Star Wars Gallery encountering LEGO "friends", similar to giant mini-figures, from each episode. Each LEGO model will be 3-feet-tall and displayed on a podium for guests to get an up-close look. The 12 characters feature: Wicket, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Clone Captain Rex, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Anakin, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Yoda and Darth Maul. In fact, two new Darth Maul LEGO models will be introduced in honor of the release of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in 3D in February, 2012. One of the Darth Maul models will stand in the LEGO Star Wars Gallery while the other LEGO model will be life-sized, posed in a combat position grasping his double-bladed lightsaber in one hand and reaching forward with the other.
