Star Wars fireworks display at Disney Hollywood Studios

Disney will offer a special Star Wars themed fireworks and projection shows this summer at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It will also offer a Stormtroopers march and a new live stage show starting April 4th.

The fireworks show, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, will be a nightly event featuring fireworks, lasters, light projections and other special effects. It will be combined with Star Wars music as well as characters and scenes from the Star Wars saga.

Disney says in a release, "Through these state-of-the-art special effects that project onto the nearby Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings, guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a field of battle 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, which will unfold through a series of acts, will be punctuated by a tower of fire as well as powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky."

This video of a Star Wars fireworks display at Disney's Hollywood Studios recorded earlier this year gives you an idea of what part of the fireworks nightly events might be like. You can hear the Star Wars theme playing as fireworks explode in the sky overhead. Take a look:
