Image 1 of 18
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, made of very small Lego bricks...
ntThe indoor Star Wars Miniland Experience recreates scenes from the Star Wars films and animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, using around 1.5 million Lego bricks. The new attraction at Legoland Windsor, just outside London, opened earlier this year.
ntHere in Lego is the Millennium Falcon – the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs – one of the most iconic Star Wars spaceships.

ntThe Legoland attraction features about 2,000 Lego models in 1:20 scale from the planets Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, Tatooine, Hoth, Endor and Christophsis. Some 55 million Lego bricks are used across the whole park. Here’s a close-up of Chewbacca and Han Solo in the cockpit.
