Returned, the Legoland Star Wars Days have. Yes, hrrrmmm.
Master Yoda’s right, and just in time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise. Pack your lightsabers and head up to Legoland Malaysia from 28 April to 31 May for these awesome events of truly galactic proportions.
Lego Star Wars Miniland, now live!
If you’re bringing along a friend who doesn’t know a thing about Star Wars, there’ll be Legoland staff (Model Citizens) dressed as Star Wars Characters giving a storytelling tour around Asia’s biggest Lego Star Wars model exhibit.
Join in the largest Imperial March yet
It’s impressive to witness over 100 Star Wars characters marching across Legoland, but wouldn’t it be so much cooler to be part of the whole thing? Strap on your homemade Star Wars costume and join Malaysia’s 501st Legion and Rebel Legion for the march - sign up on Legoland’s Facebook page.
Dancing with the Stormtroopers
You read that right, dancing Stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters will be busting their moves around the park, including Lego Darth Vader (the cute Dark Lord himself). This starts 29th April and continues every weekend till the end of May.
An ode to Princess Leia
Legoland will be honouring the legendary Princess Leia – How though, we’re not too sure.
For the young Padawans (adults not allowed)
Kids get all the fun - there’s a Jedi Academy for your younglings to master the force under the Jedi or Sith, and be a Star Wars Jetsetter to get the chance to redeem a special commemorative brick. They’ll just need to collect stamps from all the Lego Star Wars Days events, like training under Jedi Masters and building a giant R2-D2.
And if kids dress up as Star Wars characters (we’re talking full regalia, not just a Star Wars t-shirt mind you) they get to enter for free.
Other activities in A Galaxy Far Far Away
Star Wars fans can enjoy a scavenger hunt only true Jedi who’ve mastered the Force can really solve, and if you use the Force to spot Stormtrooper minifigures on Model Citizen’s vests, you can redeem a mystery prize as well.
Oh, and for Jedis staying a night in Legoland Hotel, there’s Lego Star Wars mural you can help build and if that’s not enough, you can catch the first two episodes of Star Wars from 9:30pm onwards.
And this just in, Lego Star Wars sets landing here first
