Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Premieres June 17 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney's Hollywood Studios is the destination for Star Wars fans this summer. Guests can already enjoy the Star Wars Launch Bay, the Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show, and the daily march of Captain Phasma and her First Order Stormtroopers. And in just a few weeks a new fireworks spectacular begins.

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is set to debut on June 17 and it is being called the "most elaborate fireworks display" in the history of Disney's Hollywood Studios.

This new show will feature fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects, and video projections that will turn the Chinese Theater and surrounding buildings into a field of battle droids, the twin suns of Tatooine, Starkiller Base, and more.

The show will be set to the music from the film franchise and will also "be punctuated with a tower of fire and spotlight beams" to create a "massive" lightsaber in the sky.

Are they keeping the dance party? Was was weird about that is they blocked the entire street behind the stage so characters could come and go easily, but making it hard to get around. The other problem is the huge mass of people coming out of Fantasmic have to wade through the people already standing around waiting for the fireworks.

I agree that the traffic jams can become unreasonable after Fantasmic! Hopefully they've done something to ease that a bit, but I can't really say until I've experienced it for myself. I have a feeling that this will simply become like Main Street USA and keep the congestion.
