Disneyland Resort Paris is trying a Hollywood Studios-style Star Wars takeover of Walt Disney Studios.
With the limited timeframe of the takeover it seems like a wider test for a bigger star wars presence at the park, although, this does coincide with the updating of Star Tours to “The Adventures Continue”.
The press release is as follows:
Soon, in a future not so far away, Disneyland Paris will awaken the Force with an all-new and exclusive celebration of the Star Wars saga featuring live characters and stunning entertainment.
For a limited time only, in early 2017, Disneyland Paris will be gripped by the Season of the Force:
- The Walt Disney Studios Park will present a giant night-time spectacular, which will transport guests into the heart of the Star Wars saga. This show, only available at Disneyland Paris, will combine live entertainment, breathtaking special effects and an epic sound and light show projected on the Park’s most iconic architecture.
- Throughout the day, guests will also come face to face with heroes from the Star Wars universe. Encounter a patrol of Stormtroopers (similar to Disney’s Hollywood Studios), face some of the most powerful members of the Dark Side or join the rebellion with the friendly Chewbacca.
This experience is guaranteed to dazzle everyone, from the youngest Padawan to the wisest Jedi. From 14 January to 26 March 2017, come to the Walt Disney Studios Park and let the force be with you with Star Wars, Season of the Force. More information coming soon.
