TOT Projections

Things are starting to reach fever-pitch with Star Wars fans as we inch ever closer to Star Wars: Galactic Nights which will be taking over Hollywood Studios on December 16th.  Guests attending this event are in for a real treat as it will include everything from special Star Wars-themed fireworks displays to stage shows, panel discussions and more.

If there’s one thing that has us especially excited, it’s the news that part of the evening’s entertainment will include an amazing state-of-the-art projection show onto the Tower of Terror at the end of Sunset Boulevard. The picture above was taken from the latest episode of The Star Wars Show and shows an artist’s rendering of what guests can expect during their Galactic Nights Experience.

The official name for the projection show is Star Wars: Galactic Destinations and will feature amazing displays of key locations throughout the Star Wars Galaxy.
In addition, it was announced that fan-favorite Warwick Davis will serve as the official host of the event with The Star Wars Show host David Collins serving as the moderator on the panel discussion centred around Hollywood Studios upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Expansion.
For those unfamiliar with Galactic Nights, it is a special gala ticket event that celebrates all things Star Wars. The cost to attend is $129 per adult and $124 for children (ages 3-9).  Event hours on Dec. 16 are 7 p.m.-midnight.
