LEGO® – SYDNEY IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE
This May the 4th weekend, Jedi and LEGO® fans alike are invited to come together and celebrate the world of LEGO® Star Wars™ with a building event like no other. US LEGO Master Builder, Dan Steininger, will land in Sydney to join Australia’s own LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, in an attempt to build the world’s largest model of Darth Vader from LEGO bricks. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as fans will be invited to choose their side, like Anakin, as Dan and Ryan also build a giant model of the Jedi Grand Master himself, Yoda. Join in on all the fun at Westfield Penrith, from Saturday May 3rd to Sunday May 4th!
WHY IS MAY THE 4th CALLED STAR WARS DAY?
Say “May the 4th Be With You” out loud and you’ll hear the pun that Star Wars fans worldwide have turned into a rallying cry to proclaim their love of the saga. It’s the worldwide day to say “May the Force be with you” to all, and celebrate the beloved Star Wars story that binds our galaxy together.
May the 4th kicks off a season of celebration, particularly since the month of May has always been important to Star Wars fans. The six live-action movies of the Star Wars saga debuted in May (starting with the original Star Wars on May 25th, 1977) and this year, principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII will commence in May. The month also includes George Lucas’s birthday (May 14, 1944), and had been the traditional start date of the popular Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World Resort.
