Legoland Florida is adding more “Star Wars” to its Miniland, the theme park announced Thursday.

Scenes from 2015’s “The Force Awakens” will be included in the section that already features scenes from previous “Star Wars” movies. There’s also a miniature Lego model of the Millennium Falcon.

The new display will feature several scenes with Rey, Finn, Poe, Kyle Ren and BB-8, recreated using thousands of Lego bricks.

It will include lights, sound effects and animation.

Legoland says “The Force Awakens”-inspired display will debut in 2018.

The display announcement comes as Legoland prepares to celebrate Star Wars Weekends, which runs May 6-7 and May 13-14.

Visitors can meet Lego Darth Vader, search for droid throughout Miniland USA and build their own Star Wars mural.

Other activities include giveaways, a costume parade and photo ops.

All Star Wars Weekends activities are included in Legoland Florida admission.

Miniland USA also includes Lego replicas of Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas.
