Superstar Theater Reopening as Hyperion Theater at DHS

Earlier today, Disney announced that the former Superstar Television Theater (which housed The American Idol Experience) will reopen this summer as the Hyperion Theater in time for the start of the 'Frozen' Summer Fun LIVE event.
As we hinted in one of our latest articles, the refurbished theater will be the new home of the incredibly popular "For the First Time in Forever: A “Frozen” Sing-Along Celebration." The show has been playing since last year.

The article on the Disney Parks Blog mentioned some interesting facts about the Hyperion Theater. Indeed, it looks like this large Hollywood Studios entertainment venue will reopen with some additions:

For the First Time in Forever: A “Frozen” Sing-Along Celebration – Just in time for this year’s “Frozen” Summer Fun LIVE event, this popular show moves into the beautiful Hyperion Theater (formerly Superstar Television Theater), located right in the heart of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Royal Historians of Arendelle host a fun and comedic retelling of the unique story of their kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from “Frozen,” plus all-new in-theater effects and special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff.

Here you are some more special offerings that will be available at the park this coming summer:
  • Frozen Royal Welcome – Twice each day, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff take part in a festive cavalcade throughout Hollywoodland, accompanied by the Royal Arendelle Flag Corps and a flurry of skaters, skiiers and ice cutters – along with lovable snowman, Olaf. Anna leads the procession in a beautiful horse-drawn sleigh, with Elsa gliding by on a stunning, ice palace float. The entire procession pauses twice along the route in tribute to these visitors from Arendelle, as everyone in Hollywoodland is invited to join in singing “Let It Go!”
  • Olaf’s Summer Cool Down – Several times each day, the Ambassador of Hollywoodland brings Olaf and some of his friends to the Event Stage to have a little fun with everyone “In Summer.” And as temperatures heat up, Olaf happily shares a burst from his personal snow cloud to cool things off.
  • “Coolest Summer Ever” Dance Party – Once the sun goes down, a dance party takes over the area around the Event Stage, with DJ Chill and some of your favorite Disney characters. Using a special event hashtag, you can share song requests and photos over social media, to be featured onscreen during the party.
  • “Frozen” Fireworks – As the night comes to a close, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf come together at the Event Stage for a grand finale to the day’s festivities, kicking off an awe-inspiring fireworks display set to the glorious music of “Frozen” and, of course, a flurry of snow!
‘Frozen’ Summer Fun LIVE will officially return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios June 17 – September 7, 2015. We will continue to keep you up-to-date in regards to this special event.


  1. Will it get a remodel to fit it's new name?
    I really hope Disney doesn't cut corners and just leave the building as it is.

  2. Bah. A theater is a theater. Content is what counts. A good production, attraction, whatever you want to call it, would play out just fine in a vacant lot.

    Sometimes Disney goes too far, gets too wrapped up in its mythical back story / 'immersive' creationism for its own good.

    Being reasonable doesn't mean "cutting corners."
