Madame Tussauds London has announced a new multi-million pound Star Wars experience in collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm.
A recently completed wax figure of Jedi Master Yoda was brought to a studio in London for designers to plan the final set, which brings the hostile swamps of Dagobah - featured in "Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back" - to life.
The scene is one of 11 that will recreate iconic moments from Star Wars Episodes I-VI featuring 16 heroes and villains, including Yoda on Dagobah, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader on the Death Star and Princess Leia in Jabba’s Throne Room.
Although only 66cm tall, Yoda’s figure took a team of 10 artists four months to finish and was recreated using detailed measurements and reference pictures from one of the original models used in the films.
Work is now underway to bring the rest of the experience to life for a mid-May opening. Star Wars: The Force Awakens reaches UK cinemas on 18 December.
