Star Wars fans have even more reason to visit Disney Hollywood Studios in the upcoming months. The park will debut a new stage show titled “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” on April 4th. It will feature appearances by Darth Vader, Chewbacca and Kylo Ren among iconic moments from the films.
Captain Phasma will also lead a procession of First Order Stormtroopers from the Star Wars Launch Bay to center stage throughout the day.
The Star Wars experience extends to a nightly spectacular called “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.” Disney is describing the show as “the next generation of the current Star Wars-inspired fireworks show. The show will combine fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects and video projections that will turn the nearby Chinese Theater and other buildings into the twin suns of Tatooine, a field of battle droids, the trench of the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other Star Wars destinations. The show will be punctuated with a tower of fire and spotlight beams, creating massive lightsabers in the sky. This new show will be the most elaborate fireworks display to take place in the history of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”
Last night also saw the release of more details of the upcoming Star Wars themed land. Guests will be able to pilot the Millennium Falcon and fire blaster canons. Another attraction will put guests in the middle of battle between Resistance fighters and First Order troopers. There also promises to be a marketplace where you can taste “local delicacies” with droids and aliens, an upscale dinner club and a lively cantina.
