There'll be no need to travel to a galaxy far far away if you want to indulge your Star Wars fantasies in London (Princess Leia ones not permitted) — as Madame Tussauds is preparing to open a new multi-million pound 'immersive experience' dedicated to the films.

Merely looking at wax figures is for padawans — this exhibit promises to let fans actually step into Yoda's Dagobah swamp; come face-to-face with Stormtroopers; see Luke Skywalker as he battles Darth Vader on the Death Star; feel the Force alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn when they take on Darth Maul; and even step onto the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca.

The exhibition will cover two floors at the end of the Baker Street attraction and is included in the £22 admission fee. But remember, impatience leads to the Dark Side — you'll have to wait until it opens in May.
