Star Wars A Galactic Spectacular firework show construction

Construction is progressing quickly on the new projection system for the soon-to-open "Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular."

Two towers are now in position on Hollywood Blvd that will house the projectors that will be used for the show. 

Near the Great Movie Ride exit, the wall that will be used as one of the projection surfaces is behind a scrim.

The new show opens in June and promises to be a next generation version of the popular Star Wars fireworks show that has been playing since last year.

"Through state-of-the-art special effects that project onto the nearby Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings, guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a field of battle droids, navigate through an asteroid field, soar down the trench of the Death Star and deliver the final blow to destroy Starkiller Base. The show, which will unfold through a series of acts, will be punctuated by a tower of fire as well as powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky."
