LEGO Star Wars Day

LEGO Star Wars celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and there are exciting new sets for May the Fourth.

“May the 4th be with all LEGO Star Wars fans! We are excited to continue our 25th anniversary celebration with an exciting line-up of new sets, events, and experiences for fans to enjoy. I’m looking forward to seeing how fans choose to celebrate all things LEGO Star Wars on this iconic day around the world,” said Mike Ilacqua, Head of Product, LEGO Star Wars products at the LEGO Group.

A new LEGO Star Wars UCS TIE Interceptor has been announced for fans (myself included) to recreate the Battle of Endor from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

“Finally making the UCS TIE Interceptor again after so many years was so exciting for me," said Henrik Andersen, design master at the LEGO Group. "Compared to the last time I designed [it], I was now able to create a close-to-perfect replica of the movie prop. It's always been one of my favourite Star Wars ships.”

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

LEGO Star Wars content is coming to LEGO Fortnite.

There's still time to submit an entry to the LEGO Star Wars 25-second film festival.

From May 1st to 5th, LEGO Star Wars fans will receive all three gift with purchases when purchasing the new LEGO Star Wars TIE Interceptor: including the Battle of Yavin collectable depicting Darth Vader’s cockpit view, the Trade Federation Troop Carrier set commemorating the 25th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, and the AAT building set while stocks last.
