In conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars™: A New Hope, and the 5th anniversary of LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort, LEGOLAND® is pulling out all stops to make the annual LEGO® Star Wars™ Days bigger than ever!
I was thrilled to be invited to the sneak preview of this event! Together with the members of the press, we were greeted by Leslie Falvey, General Manager of LEGO® Malaysia, Jacob Leighton Rennison, Head of Marketing of LEGO® Malaysia, and the General Manager of LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort, Kurt Stocks with an inspiring and fascinating story of the creator of Star Wars™ – George Lucas, who pursued his passions to make his dreams come true, and drive Star Wars™ to a successful franchise in the world nowadays.
Similar to last year, we were invited to participate LEGO® speed building challenge to build a LEGO® Star Wars™ U-Wing Fighter. The winner walked away with a LEGO® Star Wars Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle.
