Closing of “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” Happening Earlier than Expected

Closing of

The bad news just keeps coming. The final performance of Disney’s Hollywood Studios “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” will happen earlier than expected. Read on for full details and the new date.

We recently learned that some entertainment cuts were happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the coming weeks.

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!

The last performance was set on the schedule for March 14. However, the website has updated to reflect a new end date.

The last date on the calendar for “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” is Sunday, February 23, 2020.

While Star Wars fans and Hollywood Studios guests are sad about the ending of this show, it makes sense for it stop because the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is set to open March 4, 2020.

The Star Wars show takes place on the stage right in front of the Chinese Theater. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction is located inside the Chinese Theater.

In some more exciting news, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a FastPass+ option! It was unclear how the boarding process would operate for this attraction. Get all the details HERE.

We also mentioned that Bo Peep, Frozone, and Mike Wazowski would likely take a break from meeting guests. It is still undetermined when this will happen. It may happen with the end of “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” or at another time.

I am personally bummed about the end of a Bo Peep meet and greet. I know many thought she was a bit creepy, but my daughter wants to meet her. I don’t think that will happen for our next trip.

Will you be able to catch “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” one more time before it ends its run? Share your thoughts with us on facebook!



  1. Since this show is closing, does also mean the end of Jedi training or is that something separate? I was hoping my kids could do it when we go in May.

  2. Maybe they want to do like a lot of us and pretend TS4 didn’t happen! Award or not, I won’t be buying it. It cheapened the perfect ending of the series in TS3.

  3. I’m so tired of all of these cuts. Mike & Sully weren’t available for a meet & greet when we were there last. We have a trip scheduled for January 2021 and I was hoping to meet them! They were my daughter’s favorite characters when she was little. Frozone wasn’t meeting and neither was Bo Peep. I’m so aggravated. It’s not like it’s been forever since we were there. It was only November 2018! I’m sad about the Star Wars show as well. I loved watching it and seeing the Storm Troops march. Maybe they figure Galaxy’s Edge is enough to see the characters but they don’t really perform there. Really disappointed with all of the news.

  4. I won’t be happy, if they decide Woody and Jessie would meet together again once Bo leaves DHS, because that would servely contradict the last 15 minutes of the Oscar winning Toy Story 4. :(
