Spaceship Earth, the big ball at Disney's Epcot theme park in Orlando, Florida, will be transformed into the Death Star from the movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, according to the Disney Parks Blog:
Our next Disney Parks Blog meet-up may be the best of the year and you have an opportunity to join us for this special after-hours event at Epcot. On December 5, 2016, we are 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 Disney Parks Blog hosted meet-up, that will include local media, will be held after hours at Epcot in Florida on Monday, December 5, 2016. Specific timing and details will be shared via email to individuals whose valid RSVPs are received before we reach the planned capacity for the event.
During our Star Wars celebration, Spaceship Earth will be transformed into the Death Star through digital projections.
