LEGO Star Wars celebrates Return of the Jedi

Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 kicks off today at ExCeL London. The official Lucasfilm fan event includes a panel celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

To mark the epic conclusion of the original trilogy in 1983, LEGO has announced new diorama building sets featuring the Emperor's Throne Room and Endor Speeder Chase to relive your favourite Jedi moments.

“It’s hard to overstate the impact that Return of the Jedi has had on popular culture since its release 40 years ago, and it was a real pleasure as a fan to help create these new dioramas that celebrate some of the film’s most iconic moments,” said Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Design Lead for LEGO Star Wars.

My parents took me to Debenhams for a surprise meet and greet with Darth Vader and Stormtroopers before the release of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi! Afterwards, I chose a Speeder Bike and Biker Scout from Kenner's collection. The dark side of the Force was strong with this one.

“Whether you were in the cinema for Return of the Jedi's original release or came to discover it later, these two dioramas allow builders to recreate and display their own slice of cinematic history - and revealing them to fans, at the same time as many are enjoying Star Wars Celebration, is the perfect way to unveil them.”

LEGO Star Wars Return of the Jedi diorama sets are available from LEGO AU, CA, UK and US (affiliate links).
