WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) -

Folks wanting to relive the magic of Star Wars will no longer have to go to a galaxy far, far away.

They'll just have to go to Winter Haven.

Legoland Florida officially opened its new "Star Wars" display Friday morning, and the force was strong at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, which featured an appearance from the Sith Lord himself.  

"Come to Legoland and join the dark side," a heavy-breathing Darth Vader said Friday.  

Park officials even cut the ribbon with a lightsaber.

The display, which took 2 million Legos to build, will feature scenes from the six "Star Wars" films. Favorites like stormtroopers, the Millennium Falcon, and foreign planets Hoth and Tatooine are included in the display.

It's also good timing for Lakeland with Disney just announcing its purchase of Lucasfilm Ltd. and a new film in the works.
