Beginning June 17th, guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will find themselves transported to a new galaxy of fireworks spectaculars. “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” will turn the buildings surrounding the park’s center stage into a canvas for a new digital projection show and ignite the sky with lasers and pyrotechnics like only Disney can deliver. The show will end with a tower of fire and spotlight beams that create massive ligthsabers in the sky.
The show will use images and music from the Star Wars films themselves to retell iconic moments from the films. Disney’s Imagineers were given unique access to Lucasfilm’s vaults and the original models used in the films to film some of the scenes for the show.
Here’s an interview with Michael Roddy, show producer of “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” we filmed back in April:
Showtimes are not yet determined. But you’ll seem them soon in the My Disney Experience app and website.
“Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” will join the other Star Wars additions already added to the park including Star Wars Launch Bay, and the march of Captain Phasma and her stormtroopers, plus the Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show. Unfortunately the latter is mostly a fashion show with some clips from the movies. But definitely head to the park to enjoy the Star Wars fun (new and old) while we wait a few more years for the Star Wars themed land to open.
