Can’t wait for the release of “Star Wars: Episode VII” aka “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“? Neither can we! And we bet neither can Londoners but it seems that they could be just a tad luckier than us as they’ll be getting “Star Wars” experience on a whole new level 6 months before the release of the movie. We say this because we hear that fans who want to go cray cray over Yoda will be able to do so at Madame Tussauds London!
Recently, the wax museum announced a new multimillion-dollar “Star Wars” experience with Disney and Lucasfilm, opening in May ahead of the release of “Star Wars: Episode VII”. It is said that the “Star Wars” exhibition at Madame Tussauds will be a unique, immersive experience featuring 16 of the most famous heroes and villains in scenes from some of the most iconic moments featured in “Star Wars” Episodes I-VI.

Upon the announcement, Madame Tussauds posted up a video on their official (London) website, which reveals how the museum’s talented team of sculptors, artists, and set designers made the venerable Jedi master Yoda, the first wax figure destined for the new Star Wars Experience, along with his swampy Dagobah set, which will be one of 11 immersive walk-in scenes to be featured in the exhibit.
Madame Tussauds’ principal sculptor said in the video:
It’s a huge responsibility working on such an iconic character for me and the whole of the team of artists, not least of all because many of us are fans. We are making great effort to make sure that fans of the films will be happy and enjoy the experience when it opens in May.
Oh Londoners, you’re all such a lucky lot.
