LEGOLAND California added a new Star Wars area to its Miniland USA line-up in 2011. Star Wars Miniland is divided into seven distinct scenes – one for each of the franchise’s feature films, and one for the animated "Star Wars: Clone Wars" spin-off. Comprised of millions of LEGO bricks formed into thousands models in a 1:20 scale, Star Wars Miniland is housed alongside the existing Miniland exhibits. It recreates famous planets, environments, characters, and vehicles from the “Star Wars” universe, with visitors progressing through the movie scenes chronologically. Special effects include sound, lighting, and interactive elements.
