The new nightly Star Wars fireworks show, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, combines fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects and video projections that turn the nearby Chinese Theater and other buildings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios into the twin suns of Tatooine, a field of battle droids, the trench of the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other Star Wars destinations. The show also features a tower of fire and spotlight beams, creating massive lightsabers in the sky. (David Roark, photographer)

さらに、ナイトタイムショー「Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular」が2016年12月16日から復活します。現在はクリスマスのナイトタイムショー「Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!」が開催されていますが、12月16日から31日までは2つのショーが見られることになりますね。
