The Yoda Chronicles Tour will be visiting major shopping centres including Westfield’s Shepherd’s Bush and The Trafford Centre in Manchester.

The Tour will highlight and act as a platform for the Yoda Chronicles – an overarching theme for Lego Star Wars throughout 2013. The Yoda Chronicles sees Jedi Master Yoda releasing a series of Chronicles from the Jedi Archives. The Lego Star Wars Yoda series will unveil stories from the Holocron vault throughout the year which will appear on Cartoon Network and Lego.com/starwars, ultimately uncovering a big secret he has to reveal.

A TV screening area will showcase some of the latest Lego Star Wars mini movies. A build event will see visitors to the tour invited to help build a 4ft Lego model of Yoda.

The tour will also include a green screen, providing photo mementos of the experience, as well as having its own event hashtag #LegoYodaBuild.

Justin Clasby, Lego UK brand manager, said: “The Yoda Chronicles Tour allows us the opportunity to engage with Lego enthusiasts and Lego Star Wars fans. The Tour will encourage children and families to build together and introduce them to the new and exciting Yoda Chronicles that will unveil Lego Star Wars secrets throughout 2013.”

There is also the chance to meet a life-size Lego Darth Vader and Storm Trooper on the day.
