25 years of LEGO Star Wars

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and LEGO Star Wars.

“The LEGO Star Wars collaboration has enjoyed a most impressive 25 years with products, video games, animated content, big builds, merchandise, and more! We want to celebrate all those years and milestones with everyone who helped us get here, but especially with the fan community as we would never be where we are today without their creativity and passion,” says Mike Ilacqua, Head of Product at the LEGO Group.

To start things off, LEGO announced five new sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. This includes R2-D2, Millennium Falcon, Invisible Hand, Tantive IV and Boarding the Tantive IV diorama released on 1st March.

“It’s been 25 years of true fun combining Lucasfilm’s expansive Star Wars galaxy with the ingenuity of the LEGO Group, offering fans exciting ways to recreate their favorite scenes, vehicles and characters from our stories,” said Paul Southern, Senior Vice President, Lucasfilm Franchise and Licensing, Disney Experiences. “With the enthusiasm of our fans to engage with the Star Wars galaxy and express creativity through building, we look forward to continuing the legacy of fun for decades to come.”

Throughout 2024, the LEGO Star Wars team plans to celebrate with fans (myself included) front and centre of it all.
