A next generation edition of the current Symphony in the Stars fireworks show will debut in the summer of 2016 at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Titled 'Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,' the show will use fireworks, lasers, projections and special effects to create the ultimate Star Wars nighttime show.

According to a press release:

"Through these 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."

It is interesting to note from the concept art the off-center presentation of the fireworks. This fits with the position of the new out-of-park firework launch site currently being built across World Drive, which does not line up exactly with Hollywood Blvd.
