WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -

The new Star Wars attraction opens Friday morning at Legoland Florida.

A legion of black-robed Darth Vaders will help the theme park officially open its new Lego Star Wars Miniland Model Display.

The attraction has been under construction for four months and consists of 1.5 million Lego bricks.

The display recreates scenes from each of the six Star Wars movies, and a seventh from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. 

Fans can expect to see the famous Cantina scene and marvel at replicas of Luke Skywalker's X-wing starfighter, Han Solo's starship the Millennium Falcon and the Imperial Shuttle that transports the Dark lord of Sith himself, Darth Vader.
