ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – Disney and Star Wars fans will be happy to know that an extravagant Star Wars-inspired fireworks show will be lighting the sky over Walt Disney World this summer.
“Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” is scheduled to debut this summer. The nightly show will feature Star Wars-themed fireworks, lasers, light projections and other special effects combined with Star Wars-themed music and characters.
The special effects will be projected onto the Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings. At the same time, park guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a battle of droids, navigate through an asteroid field, soar down the trench of the Death Star and deliver the final blow to destroy Starkiller Base. The show will unfold through a series of acts and will be punctuated by a tower of fire and powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky, according to a Disney announcement about the new Star Wars attractions.
The fireworks show joins two other new Star Wars attractions at theme park.
Scheduled to open on April 4, 2016:
- Star Wars: A Galaxy Far Away: This new live, stage show celebrates iconic moments from the Star Wars saga with live vignettes featuring popular Star Wars characters like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Darth Maul. The show will take place multiple times each day at the Center Stage near the Great Movie Ride.
- Stormtroopers March: At various times each day, the menacing Captain Phasma will lead a squad of First Order stormtroopers as they march in formation from Star Wars Launch Bay to the Center Stage area in an intimidating demonstration of the First Order’s indomitable strength.
