Lego Death Star – level 2

25-08-2023 15:00

In England, people made one of the biggest ever Lego Star Wars models in a Legoland resort. It is a model of the Empire’s super weapon: the Death Star, which rebels attack in “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”.

People made the Death Star from 500,000 Lego bricks. It weighs 860 kilograms and it is three metres high. It took 15 people 3 months to build the model and three days to install it.

Guests can bring the model to life by turning on its sound and light effects.

Difficult words: resort (a holiday centre), weapon (a war machine), install (to put together).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
