ORLANDO, Fla. -- Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida is about to be invaded by Jedis and stormtroopers.
Officials at Walt Disney World Resort said Friday that the movie-themed park will have a stormtrooper processional and a "Star Wars" stage show starting in April.
The stormtroopers' march will take place at different times during the day. The stage show will feature actors playing "Star Wars" characters like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca and Darth Vader.
Starting in the summer, the park will end the day with fireworks and projection show called "Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular."
The shows are the latest "Star Wars" blitz to hit Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Last December, the park opened a courtyard filled with all things "Star Wars," a video game centre and movie theatre showing abridged versions of "Star Wars" movies.
