Let’s admit it, most of us Star Wars fans have a favourite character (mine’s Yoda) and seeing them come to life would be like it’s Christmas!

Luckily for us, fan favourites Chewbacca and Kylo Ren will be making 30 minute appearances at Gardens by the Bay. If you’re a fan of of the jaw-dropping machinery featured in the movies, check out the iconic All-Terrain Scout Transport (AT – ST) standing guard at the Supertree Grove.

Can never have enough Star Wars memorabilia? The Supertree Grove will also be playing host to a Star Wars fan convention. Look out for Star Wars fan groups decked out in Star Wars costumes, and take home fan-made commemorative memorabilia as well!
