Disney to transform Spaceship Earth into the Death Star for one night only

Dec 02, 2016 in "Spaceship Earth"

Walt Disney World will be celebrating Star Wars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as well as the upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with an invite-only meet-up that’ll feature Spaceship Earth magically transforming into the Death Star.

The official Disney Parks Blog today invited signups for the event, to be held at Epcot after hours.

Spaceship Earth will be transformed into the Death Star through digital projections. And before the Death Star appears, Disney will share updates on current and upcoming Star Wars experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Disney will also be live streaming the event on the Disney Parks Blog website beginning at 10:25pm.

Spaceship Earth has been used for a promotional tie-in previously, with the icon taking the form of Mike Wazoski in 2013 to promote a Monstrous Summer at Walt Disney World.
