Disney’s Hollywood Studios To See Closing of A Popular Show and Some Character Meets

Disney’s Hollywood Studios To See Closing of A Popular Show and Some Character Meets

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is undergoing some of the biggest changes in Walt Disney World history, and it is possible that even more changes are about to occur!

Some sad news for Star Wars fans. Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away has felt a disturbance in the force and will be ending soon.

No closing date has been officially announced, and the show is still showing on Hollywood Studio’s schedule until March 14th. However, rumors have been swirling that the show will close about a week prior to the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far away is a live action show featuring Rey, Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader. This show debuted in 2016, and it has been fun to catch some of our favorite and most feared characters in action!

No reasons have been given for the closing of this show. As a Star Wars fan myself, I am hopeful this means a new and even more exciting show might take its place, perhaps in Galaxy’s Edge?

I’m sure most of us would agree that a stage show in Galaxy’s Edge would be a welcome addition to the area.

Elsewhere in Hollywood Studios, rumors are also swirling about some possible meet and greet changes for some beloved characters.

It is with a sad heart that I share the news that Bo Peep, Frozone, and Mike Wazowski are expected to be taking a break from meeting with guests. I for one am hopeful that this rumor proves to be untrue because I am hoping to meet Bo Peep on my next visit!

You know what? I’m glad The Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away show is finally ending , Don’t get me wrong I loved seeing that show when I visited HS, but is was meant to be a temporary show and we now have Galaxy’s Edge. This has to be a sign that they’ll finally add entertainment to Galaxy’s Edge, like the roaming aliens, roaming droids, and various stunt shows.

Well, to be fair the show was meant to be temporary, now can we focus on having Bob Iger and the Disney company to find and rip Universal's contract, so the Avengers can immediately find a home at Hollywood Studios, so there could be more than just Star Wars, because I find the MCU is way more engaging than most of the Star Wars films.

But on a downside, they shouldn't do this to Bo Peep, TS4 was a huge box office hit and nominated for two Oscars(most likely losing to Klaus and that Elton John song from Rocketman respectively). Wish they focused on putting out characters from Pixar's latest foray Onward and Disney Channel's amazing show, The Owl House instead.

You also can't have Woody meet together with Jessie at Toy Story Land again, Woody left Jessie and Buzz at the end of Toy Story 4, that contradicts the ending of the latest TS movie, if Jessie & Woody meet together again when Bo Peep leaves, can't you cut Olaf from Celebrity Spotlight(for a new character or two, because that meet was supposed to switch out backdrops and characters) instead of ditching Bo.

I'm hoping that Bo Peep returns to WDW for the resort's big 50th Anniversary, if they decide to end her meets, what do you guys think?, bring her back for the celebration, WDW. Otherwise, I'll begin to consider hosting a catering party with appearances by Bo and Woody, by the time I go next February.

Well that explains why I can't find the show for April.... Bummer. And I really wanted to see those characters. Boo.
