Default Star Wars: Galactic Destinations Projections Show at HS

From MousePlanet:

The Walt Disney World public relations team used the opportunity of the just-past-sunrise event to further promote the upcoming December 16 return of Star Wars Galactic Nights, the hard-ticketed, after-hours event at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The tie in here is not only the totality of the Star Wars universe, of course, but the special "Inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" panel discussion that will be presented several times that night featuring members of the Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm teams working on the new lands. The panel, which is scheduled to include Scott Trowbridge, Portfolio Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering; Robin Reardon, Executive Creative Producer at Walt Disney Imagineering; Chris Beatty, Executive Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering and Doug Chiang, VP/Creative Director at Lucasfilm, promises to "give guests an inside look at the making of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge lands currently under construction at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park." We have been invited to attend the Star Wars Galactic Nights event and will provide a full report.

Actor David Collins is now scheduled to moderate the panel discussions. Disney also announced this week that Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok to Star Wars fans is among his credits) is now scheduled to appear at Star Wars Galactic Nights.

Now that Sunset Boulevard is home to the nightly projection show "Sunset Seasons Greetings," the technology is in place for Star Wars Galactic Nights' one-night-only presentation of the all-new "Star Wars: Galactic Destinations" projection show on the facade of The Hollywood Tower Hotel and along the boulevard. The creative team promises images from the entire (known) Star Wars universe, including The Last Jedi, in light of the fact the film officially debuts the night before the event. We were told, and Disney Parks Blog confirms, that The Last Jedi will be evident in the Launch Bay, the Path of the Jedi film, A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show, and the Galactic Spectacular fireworks show too.

As previously reported, guests at the Galactic Nights events are welcome to come in costumes, subject to guidelines. Iconic attractions will be open with what Disney says will be "little-to-no wait times," probably because most of the attendees will be visiting all the special Star Wars-themed special attractions all night long.

Tickets for the hard-ticketed event may be purchased online or by calling (407) 934-7639. Tickets are $129/adult; $125/ages 3-9 (discounts available for Annual Passholders and DVC Members). The event runs 7 p.m. until midnight. Special foods and beverages will be available for purchase individually or as part of a Galactic Tasting and Viewing Package as well, as Disney Parks Blog reported earlier this fall.
