Star Wars Galactic Nights will return for launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story

With Star Wars: Galactic Edge not opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios until 2019, the big Star Wars event of 2018 will be the world premiere of the second ever stand-alone film “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” To celebrate Walt Disney World is bringing back its very limited theme park party Star Wars: Galactic Nights for one night only on May 27th.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” debuts on May 25th, so you’ll have a couple days to go see the film before the Galactic Nights party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. At the Star Wars themed after hours ticketed event you’ll find out-of-this-galaxy entertainment, special photo opportunities, event-exclusive merchandise, character meet and greets, and specially prepared Star Wars themed food and beverages.

Among the highlights are the Star Wars: Galactic Destinations digital projection show that transforms The Hollywood Tower Hotel. Visible from along the Sunset Boulevard area of the park the facade of the Hollywood Tower Hotel will transform via stunning projection technology to showcase familiar locations from across the galaxy. Favorite film moments, special effects, area lighting, and, of course, the stellar Star Wars cinematic score supports each galactic location moment all night long. Star Wars Galactic Destinations is currently an event exclusive.

The park’s existing Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks and the Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show will both debut new saga elements for the first time during Star Wars: Galactic Nights.

The event includes access to select attractions and Disney is hinting that some may have their own Star Wars twist for that night only. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more details about Star Wars: Galactic Edge were revealed too.

Tickets are not yet on sale, but put down May 27th 7pm until Midnight on your Star Wars calendar.
