New Star Wars Entertainment Coming to Hollywood Studios

Following the extraordinary popularity of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Walt Disney World will unveil even more Star Wars-themed entertainment, including one of the most elaborate fireworks and projection shows in the park’s history.
Just in time for spring, the new Star Wars live entertainment experience Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away and a First Order stormtrooper procession will officially debut on Monday, April 4, 2016 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away: This new live, stage show celebrates iconic moments from the Star Wars saga with live vignettes featuring popular Star Wars characters, such as Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul. The show will take place multiple times each day at the Center Stage area near The Great Movie Ride.

Stormtroopers march: At various times each day, the menacing Captain Phasma will lead a squad of First Order stormtroopers as they march in formation from Star Wars Launch Bay to the Center Stage area in an intimidating demonstration of the First Order’s indomitable strength.

To kick off summer, the park is launching a new nightly fireworks and projection show called Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular that will eclipse anything of its kind in the park’s history. 

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular: As the next generation of the current Star Wars-inspired fireworks show, this blockbuster nightly show, unprecedented in Disney’s Hollywood Studios history, will light up the sky with Star Wars-themed fireworks, lasers, light projections and other special effects combined with Star Wars-themed music and iconic characters and scenes from throughout the saga.


Through these state-of-the-art special effects that project onto the nearby Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings, Guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a field of battle droids, navigate through an asteroid field, soar down the trench of the Death Star and deliver the final blow to destroy Starkiller Base. The show, which will unfold through a series of acts, will be punctuated by a tower of fire as well as powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky.

These new Star Wars entertainment elements, coupled with other recently-added Star Wars experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, make Disney’s Hollywood Studios the place for fans to celebrate their Star Wars passion.

  1. Wow more Star Wars stuff. How exciting, NOT!!!

  2. Could be worse. Could be Frozen.

  3. So, the usual Disney can do no right crowd appears.


  4. 3rd anonymous from 2nd anonymous:

    I was just being sarcastic! I am looking forward to the Star Wars years.

  5. Oh good. More shows and meet and greets.

    That's so much better then a new ride....

  6. Well it can take maybe a month to built theses meet and greet sets but the new lands won't be all available to maybe 2020/2021.

  7. Unless it is a Frozen meet and greet in Epcot. In that case it will take 2 years to build, not months. It's more about priorities.
