On April 14, Hollywood Studios will be transformed into a scene out of every Star Wars fanatic’s dreams for Star Wars: Galactic Nights, part of Orlando’s annual Star Wars Celebration. In additon to exploring the park’s resident Star Wars attractions like Star Tours and The Launch Bay, eventgoers can participate in many other galactic festivities throughout the night. Starting at 7 p.m., The Rebel Base will serve as the event’s main hub in the center of the park, where guests can watch shows, dance and get information about the other events occuring throughout the night.
Movie buffs can get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the making of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the Inside the Saga Celebrity Chat Show, hosted by Star Wars Rebels‘ Vannesa Marshall or catch Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away, which combines some of the films’ best moments with live stage appearances by characters like Darth Vader and Chewbacca.

At each photo op, participants will receive a themed item from each film. Find all the souvenir pieces to create a unique keepsake from the galactic bash!
