Disney has announced today that more Star Wars entertainment is on its way. Starting April 4, 2016, there will be a Star Wars stage show, a procession, and upgrades to the nightly fireworks show. This is sounding to be a great year for Star Wars in the parks. Lets dig in to the details of these things.
The Star Wars stage show will happen in front of the Chinese Theater on Center Stage and will recreate iconic moments from the films. It will feature Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and of course Darth Maul. There will also be more characters included. It sounds like this will be similar to what they had during Star Wars weekends but will be more of a story.Hopefully Han Solo is in this.
The procession will have Captain Phasma and some First Order stormtroopers marching from Star Wars Launch Bay to Center Stage a few times a day. Maybe this will feature some villains hopefully. It would be really cool to see Boba Fett in this and Darth Maul too.
And finally, Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular will be renamed to Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular and will upgraded to have video projections, pyrotechnics, and other special effects. The video projections will transform the Chinese Theater and the buildings around it into places from the Star Wars universe. There is also going to be towers of fire according to concept art to the left. And there will be giant lightsabers in the sky!
How cool is this going to be! This firework show is going to be the best firework show at Hollywood Studios, maybe even the best firework show in Walt Disney World!! I can’t wait to see how these things turn out. What is your favorite part of these entertainment offerings?
