Last week, our readers were among the first to see what has shaped up to be one of the most anticipated films of all time right here at AMC Disney Springs 24. They walked the red carpet – many in costume – and were also surprised with a quick Q&A with Show Director Tony Giordano who joined us in the theater before the film began to talk about how guests are reacting to the new Star Wars offerings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Afterwards, the group headed to a private event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that featured appearances by Star Wars characters (including Captain Phasma), access to the new Star Wars Launch Bay and Jedi Training: Trials of the Temples, themed food & beverage, and special photo opps.
