  • I am a huge Star Wars fan. This is one of the worst things that has been added lately. They should at least find somewhere indoors to see this show. At least the AC would be the only positive of this show. It’s like a Star Wars fashion show or starting line-up at a sporting event. The stage also blocks one of the best views in the park.

    • It is not like a starting line-up at a sporting event! They don’t play Woomp There It Is once during the show.

    • I agree, it blocks the view of the Chinese Theatre and the space would be better served as a ground-level meet’n’greet with the Star Wars characters.

  • I wouldn’t make too much of a fuss. This won’t be here past SWL opening and it’s simply a fun way for older folks to get some feels and for the kids to see their favorite characters. But, fret not those who dislike, it will be gone in a little over a year.
