This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Despite stating that Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular would not return until 12/31, the spectacular has been added nightly starting December 16th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Starting in summer 2016, a new Star Wars fireworks show, "Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular," will debut to guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The nightly show will combine fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects and video projections that will turn the nearby Chinese Theater and other buildings into the twin suns of Tatooine, a field of battle droids, the trench of the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other Star Wars destinations. The show also will feature a tower of fire and spotlight beams, creating massive lightsabers in the sky. (Disney/Lucasfilm)

The fireworks are now scheduled at 10:30pm on the 16th, 9:30pm on December 17th, and at 6:15pm the 18th through the 30th.

Disney is expected to make additions from Rogue One to the show upon its return.

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! will also continue to take place as scheduled.
