The force, as they say, is strong with Legoland's California amusement park. An army of stormtroopers interrupted the park's annual business results press conference (similar to Darth Vader's recent crashing of 20th Century Fox's CES press conference) to announce the launch of a new Star Wars "mini-park" for the Carlsbad location.

The new park features seven scenes from the six Star Wars film and a scene from the Clone Wars animated feature, recreated with 1.5 million Lego bricks on a 1:20 scale. They also feature life size Lego recreations of iconic Star War characters like Darth Vader, R2D2, and Chewbacca.

The California version of the mini-park is set to open on March 31st. Mini-parks will follow in the Billund and Deutschland locations. The scenes were designed by eight Lego model engineers and two animation electricians.
