This spring, a series of “Star Wars”-themed shows will infiltrate the confines of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

On April 4 the park will debut “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away,” a stage show that will recreate key events from the iconic space franchise and feature guest appearances from characters like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Darth Maul.

April 4 also marks the launch of a recurring stoormtroopers march, which will be commanded by First Order trooper Captain Phasma multiple times a day.

Beginning this summer, Hollywood Studios will premiere “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,” a nightly fireworks show that will combine fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects and video projections, which include images of the twin suns of Tatooine, battle droids, the trench of the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other Star Wars destinations. The fireworks production — which will be the most elaborate fireworks show in the park’s history — will also include a tower of fire and spotlight beams to create lightsaber-like light displays in the sky.

The park’s other “Star Wars”-inspired offerings include a 3-D, motion-simulated space flight attraction that features characters from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Jedi training sessions and a collection of replica props, models and costumes. “Star Wars” merchandise also abounds in Disney parks.

Meanwhile in California, Disneyland’s “Star Wars” expansion is underway.
