Before the fireworks begin, the show starts with a welcome from the Lore Weaver:


Smugglers and scoundrels, pirates and rogues, travelers and adventurers — welcome. My name is [unintelligible], the Lore Weaver. In Black Spire, I found refuge and my home. And though I am long since gone, through my droid and friend, [unintelligible], my voice and my stories live on. Black Spire Outpost has a long and colorful history of heroes and legends, Jedi and Sith, royalty and resistance. Those who would rule and those who refuse to bow. Here we celebrate that fiery spirit tonight. Those with lights, raise them and everyone prepare to raise your voice. We are the spirt of Black Spire. The fire of the rising moons. To those who would bring darkness, know this: now and ever, we bring the light ’till the spire!

After the opening spiel, the show kicks off with John Williams’ iconic “Star Wars (Main Title),” and the fireworks begin.
