Star Wars’ life size X-Wing made out of Lego

“Do or do not – there is no try” says Jedi Master YodaTM to Luke Skywalker in “Star WarsTM: The Empire Strikes Back”.   Then, using the Force, he lifts an X- WingTM out of the swamp – thus making what was impossible for Luke possible. LEGO® GmbH took this scene to heart and now presents, on the occasion of “The Force Friday”.

With the landing of the LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM on the longest glacier of the SwissAlps, LEGO® GmbH also celebrates a very special partnership: The license agreement signed over 20 years ago between the LEGO® Group and Lucasfilm started an intergalactic success story which has connected people across generations and countries ever since.

The LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM built entirely from 2.5 million LEGO® pieces by LEGO® Certified Professional Georg Schmitt, along with a 10-person team, spans an impressive 10 x 10 metres. The building of the LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM took over 1,500 hours of work.

“Disneyland will never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world” — Walt Disney

When Walt Disney formally dedicated Disneyland on opening day (July 17, 1955) he stated that he hoped that it would be ” . . . a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

Over the past six decades the Disney theme park that started it all has welcomed over 700 million guests from all corners of the globe and continues to introduce new forms of entertainment and technology that fulfills Walt Disney’s goal that Disneyland “never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world.”   The creation of Disneyland was, perhaps, the single greatest entertainment achievement of the 20th century – – introducing an entirely new concept in outdoor family entertainment and launching today’s global theme park industry. In creating Disneyland, Walt Disney sparked the world’s imagination and established an icon of fun and magic known the world over.

Today, more than six generations of families and friends from across the globe have grown-up with the familiar and comforting experience of Disneyland, making it a treasured part of our collective consciousness. “The Happiest Place on Earth” can count among its guests seven US Presidents (From Harry S. Truman thru George H. Bush), numerous heads of state (Prime Minister Nehru of India, President Anwar Sadat of Egypt, Emperor Hirohito of Japan, etc.), plus countless famed actors, actresses, singers, musicians, artists and athletes (a virtual “Who’s Who” of the 20th century and young millennium).

At the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, leisure and business travelers will find three Disney Hotel properties, each with a distinctive style: the upscale surroundings and California Craftsman architecture of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the classic Disney magic and charm of the Disneyland Hotel, and the sunny California beachfront theme at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel.
