That Galaxy far, far, away seems to be getting closer all the time, doesn't it. <a href='http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-09-04/business/os-star-wars-legoland-expansion-20120904_1_legoland-florida-clone-wars-lego-models' target='offsite'>The <i>Orlando Sentinel</i> reports</a> that the second LEGO theme park in North America is planning to add a Star Wars focused area of the park.<p>In the classic style of the opening of the Star Wars films, LEGOLAND Florida sent a video to the media reading, "In two days' time in a galaxy 45 minutes away ... the esteemed council of Legoland Florida will reveal a top-secret expansion taking place within the park in the year 2012,". This would be the first section of a LEGOLAND park devoted to a licensed theme--all others have been based around themes like Pirates, Adventurers, Technic, and good, old-fashioned LEGO City. Based on the announcement, we should be looking in the next two days for some more news on the subject.</p>View the full article

This tells me two things: one, Star Wars is still going very well, and two, that LEGO must have some plan to renew the contract after it expires in a decade's time. If they let it run out, they'd have to get rid of all the LSW stuff in this expansion.

Not sure if it counts, but LEGOLAND Germany has had a Star Wars MINILAND for over a year. This sounds larger than that, though. I agree with Sumiki Mr. Guiteau, Star Wars still seems to be LEGO's top-seller. It's kind of become a classic LEGO theme already. :P~Mentos Fruit

California had a Star Wars miniland also. This is a full-size sorta thing, like the Imagination Zone or Big Town or whatever they call it. Nothing mini about it. At least that's what it sounds like, and I hope that's exactly what it is.

If only I lived closer to Florida. Then I could check this out when it opens. But still, I look forward to learning more about this.
