The 60th Anniversary of Disneyland kicks off this weekend with a ton of great events. We covered a bunch of them here, but one we didn’t was the updated World of Color. World of Color is an elaborate show that takes place at Disney’s California Adventure, and combines music and effects with projections displayed on a wall of water. It’s probably the most impressive nighttime event Disney does at any of their parks on either coast. For the 60th anniversary, they’ve updated the show with more of the history and future of Disney which, of course, includes Star Wars.
In including Star Wars in the new World of Color, Disney has gone one step further and included footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the show. There’s nothing new, but if seeing footage from the first two trailers projected on water with music and live physical effects sounds cool, you’re going to want to click below. There, fans who can’t make it to Disneyland to see a video of the Star Wars World of Color Segment.
Thanks to Inside the Magic for this great video.
