No, these aren't the announcements you're looking for. There's no new news about the Star Wars Land that's under construction at Disney Hollywood Studios for an opening a long time from now with queues whose entrances will be far, far away. But Star Wars fans soon will be able to watch the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular night-time show again at the park, as it will return on Dec. 16, running as a second show with the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! holiday fireworks each night through the end of the month.
In addition, by the middle of the month, Star Tours - The Adventurers Continue will return to its random selection for its first destination, dropping the start in Jakku that Disney added to promote the opening of last year's Star Wars Episode 7 - The Force Awakens.
Disney will promote this year's Rogue One - A Star Wars Story by adding props and models from the film to the park's Star Wars Launch Bay, and Imperial AWR (Advanced Weapons Research) Troopers from the film will begin appearing in the Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away daytime show.
Finally, because Jabba's gotta make his money somehow, Disney announced plans for a Star Wars-themed Guided Tour of Disney's Hollywood Studios, which will include a reserved spot for participating guests ages 4 through 12 in the highly-sought-after Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple show. So for parents who pay the as-yet-undisclosed price for the tour, they can skip arriving early and waiting in line and effectively buy their kids' way into the show. The tour also will include a ride on Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, a guided tour of the Launch Bay, lunch with Star Wars-themed eats, and the dessert party and reserved viewing for the Galactic Spectacular show.
