Positioned in the exact spot Sorcerer Mickey’s hat used to stand, right in front of the Chinese Theater, “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far Far Away” delighted guests throughout their day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It was a highlight reel of the series combining pre-recorded video with live acting.

The show also featured Star Wars characters such as Kylo Ren, Rey, Chewbacca, R2-D2, BB-8, C3PO, Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtroopers, and–of course–the one and only Darth Vader. Scenes transitioned with words of wisdom from Master Yoda and it concluded on a massive curtain call with every character.

The show began its run back in 2016, a time when Star Wars truly began to take over the Walt Disney World theme park with the show and Star Wars Launch Bay complementing the little corner of the park dominated by Star Tours. Now, thanks mostly to Star Wars: Galaxy‘s Edge, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has almost everything Star Wars fans could want. They now have the chance to ride the Millennium Falcon, undergo their own Jedi Training, enjoy a few drinks in the cantina, and have the chance to create their own chapter of the Star Wars Saga by riding Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Next year, fans will even be able to live out their own Star Wars adventure by booking a reservation at the new hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
On top of this, the highly-anticipated ride, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be opening in the Grauman’s Chinese Theater. So, it appears that the obviously-temporary attraction has reached the end of its tenure.
