New Star Wars Nighttime Spectacular and Stormtrooper processional coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

New Star Wars Nighttime Spectacular and Stormtrooper processional coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney just announced that Hollywood Studios will receive a couple of new Star Wars themed upgrades soon.

A new nighttime stage show that will receive the monkier “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” will demonstrate iconic moments from the Star Wars series and will include Star Wars characters like Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Darth Maul and Kylo Ren.  It will take place on Center Stage in front of the Chinese Theater.

During the daytime, Captain Phasma will begin leading her platoon of First Order Stormtroopers on a march from Star Wars Launch Bay to Center Stage several times a day.

Both of these new entertainment options will begin on April 4!

Star Wars fireworks will receive another upgrade this summer and and new name: “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.”  The new version of the fireworks will include video projections on the Chinese theater and nearby buildings and include pyrotechnics and other special effects.  It should remind you of the Castle projection shows.  Projections will take you to places like the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other destinations.  It will offer a tower of fire and spotlight beams that will create giant lightsabers.

All the other existing Star Wars activities will continue.  Sounds like its Star Wars Summer Fun this year.  We’re still waiting on confirmation on the possible Star Wars character meal.  What are you most excited to see?

  1. I enjoyed the dance/music party before the Star Wars dessert party – is that going away? It was for about 45 minutes or so, and then ended shortly before the fireworks

      • Great News about the upgrades…we are going in May and have an 11 a.m reservation at the Sci-Fi on the 13th of May. i keep checking everywhere to see if they offer the Galactic Breakfast like we did last year. Maybe they will contact us again about changing our reservation. or the minute I see something on your site…I will be calling. We can’t wait we are hoping the whole Star Wars feeling is anything like what we are hearing it will be. Thanks again Kenny for all you do.

  2. Will any of these characters you mentioned be meeting for pictures? Also, did you find out yet if Olaf will be signing autographs or not? Thanks!

  3. Is there any word if this is a nightly event like Symphany in the Stars or will it be a special ticket event and only run on selected nights?

  4. I would love to see something similar to the meal Galactic breakfast they had at Sci-Fi the last couple years. It was so much fun and the food was delicious too. Walking in to see Boba Fett and Vader was the best!

    • That would be something I would definitely pay for..since I have yet to be there during Star Wars Weekend so this is my first time doing any Star Wars meets and greet…and oddly enough I do not yet have any breakfast or lunch plans for Hollywood.

      • Kenny Email me more about “apying you” ..I already have your character locator app but I am glad to talk with you about hiring such a knowledgeable guide to make our day at Hollywood Studios more magical.
