Disney has announced that it’s time for Disney’s Hollywood Studios to “awake”. A new Star Wars nighttime spectacular will be coming to the park starting in the summer with other Star Wars related events starting as soon as April. This will include a new fireworks show projections on the Chinese Theater and surrounding buildings. Hit the jump for more details on the nighttime spectacular and other Star Wars events coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this Spring & Summer.
Along with the nighttime spectacular Disney has announced a new stage show centered around Star Wars. The stage shows at Hollywood Studios seem to have mixed reactions since the removal of the Sorcerer’s Hat from the park. Disney’s reasoning was that removing the hat would provide unobstructed views of the Chinese Theater as guests entered the park. Now Disney has taken that space to build a stage for these shows, which blocks the view of the theater! I am not really a fan of the stage shows at Hollywood Studios and would prefer that stage be moved. Hopefully once Star Wars Land & Toy Story Land is compete they can relocate that stage to another area. Captain Phasma will also be leading First Order Stormtroopers from the Star Wars Launch Bay to the stage several times each day.
We’ll keep covering any Star Wars or Hollywood Studios news here on Behind Magic. We’ll also have reviews up later in the year.
