Darth Vader Takes Over Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios

Ever since the sequel trilogy has taken over the marketing of Star Wars, Disney has done nothing more than to make sure everyone has a chance to fulfill their dream of meeting these new characters face-to-face.

However, one major character change will be occurring this year, which may be a surprise for some. According to Walt Disney World News Today, Darth Vader will be replacing Kylo Ren at Hollywood Studios in the Star Wars Launch Bay where you can have a quick meet and greet with one of the most dangerous enemies in the galaxy. ‘Enemy’ though, can considered to be a certain point of view, am I right?

Darth Vader is expected to take over his grandson’s legacy on August 29th, the same day Galaxy’s Edge will be opening. And for those who don’t want to wait in the expected long lines at Galaxy’s Edge when it first opens, head over to the Launch Bay and meet one of the most powerful Sith to rule the galaxy!

But seriously though, it is for certain that day-one of Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World is sure to be packed. But don’t worry! Here’s a list of other Star Wars-themed experiences that you can enjoy:
