Over the weekend, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort celebrated the launch of LEGO Star Wars Days with a bunch of special activities, including a massive Imperial March featuring over 100 Star Wars characters.
Despite the rain, the characters showed up in full force to support the event:
A special Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia LEGO piece was also unveiled at the launch on Saturday to commemorate the late actress who passed away in 2016.
If you miss the launch over the weekend, you can still experience the special LEGO Star Wars Day activities at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. The celebration will run over the course of 34 days across 5 weekends (28 Apr to 31 May) with a variety of exciting and entertaining Star Wars daily activities for the whole family.
The star of the show lies at LEGO Star Wars Miniland, the only indoor LEGO Star Wars Miniland in Asia, where guests can experience a special ‘live storytelling’ of great scenes from the epic space saga exclusively for the month of May.
Those who wish to be one with the Force can do so at the Jedi Academy, where they can train to become a Jedi.
To bring the Star Wars experience to life even further, Stormtroopers and Star Wars characters can be found roaming around the park and will stop for photo opportunities. The trickiest character to spot will be the elusive LEGO Darth Vader, so be sure to be on a lookout for him.
“Building on last year’s successful LEGO Star Wars Day, LEGOLAND is once again embarking on a journey to bring LEGO Star Wars to life for all Star Wars fans, young and old alike. This year, we are kicking it up a notch and ensuring that it will be filled with building activities that will inspire and encourage learning through play. Our guests will be in for a treat as they will be able to participate in various building activities such as Star Wars World, R2-D2 Challenge, Speed Building, Star Wars model build, and create your own Star Wars set,” said Kurt Stocks, General Manager at LEGOLAND Resort Malaysia.
The younger guests will also receive a LEGOLAND Star Wars Passport, which can be used to collect stamps from activities such as R2-D2 build, Star Wars World, Trivia Hunt, Jedi Academy, and Speed building competition. Upon collection of all stamps, guests can stand a chance to be rewarded with a special commemorative brick – awarded on a first-come, first-served basis – to remind them of their fun and exciting adventures at LEGOLAND.
