Do you miss Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? You might want to check out the “Legends of the Force” celebration of Star Wars over at Disneyland Paris. From January 12 through March 17 the resort becomes the perfect place to celebrate your special connection to Star Wars, meet Star Wars heroes and villains and relive your favorite Star Wars moments.
Legends of the Force – A Celebration of Star Wars is the perfect opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in the heart of the Star Wars galaxy, following in the footsteps of iconic characters such as Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO… while having to confront the dark side of the force with Darth Vader and Kylo Ren.
Here’s the celebration lineup:
Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration
At dusk, Walt Disney Studios Park will pay spectacular homage to the Star Wars galaxy with an amazing sound and light show. Image projections, special effects and, of course, the Star Wars Characters. Sequences inspired by the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi are also on the program, including new characters, such as faithful Resistance droid BB-8, who will be making a first appearance. But be careful, the dark side is never far away, with special scenes featuring the Empire and the First Order. It’s a totally unmissable experience.
Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away
This show, which will be taking place several times a day in Production Courtyard, gives guests a chance to relive the greatest moments of the Star Wars saga, as they listen to its epic musical themes. Look out for Kylo Ren, Rey and Darth Maul during the show, and for the first time, that fearsome bounty hunter, Boba Fett.
The First Order March
Each day will also feature a marching procession of First Order stormtroopers led by the menacing Captain Phasma.
Have fun meeting your favorite Star Wars Characters
For the first time, guests will be able to meet Star Wars favorite, Chewbacca, a true Legend of the Resistance, at Walt Disney Studios Park. A rare encounter with the Wookiee that’s sure to be an epic experience.
Meanwhile, squads of stormtroopers will patrol Production Courtyard in search of allies of the Resistance.
The Star Wars legend will also take place at Disneyland Park, where the more adventurous will be able to confront Darth Vader and brave the power of the dark side at Starport, just near the attraction Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
Fearless voyagers will be able to experience an intergalactic adventure aboard StarSpeeder 1000, as they head for some of the most iconic planets featured in the Star Wars saga. One thing is certain – this 3D experience will delight the galaxy’s most passionate fans.
Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain
For guests who love thrills, they can jump on board an X-wing and join the Resistance on an epic expedition packed with excitement, as they find themselves at the very heart of the famous battle of Jakku, fighting the Galactic Empire. An unforgettable experience to the sound of the epic saga’s legendary music.
While it’s missing a few of the fun parts about Star Wars Weekends, Legends of the Force delivers a lot of what Star Wars fans love to experience.
