Sorcery in the Sky is a retired fireworks show that formerly appeared in the skies of Disney's Hollywood Studios. It ended the day at the park from it's opening in 1989 to sometime before Fantasmic! started in 1998. It would appear above the Great Movie Ride. The narration for the show was done by Vincent Price but was replaced sometime after his death 1993, as there are audio copies of the show floating around that have a generic male narrator.
