EPCOT’s iconic Spaceship Earth will turn into the planet-destroying Death Star tonight.
The transformation will help promote the upcoming premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It’s happening after the park closes for a special event but Disney will live-stream the transformation on its blog at 10:25 p.m.
The park will use digital projection to map the image of the world killer onto the giant golf ball-shaped attraction. The projection is designed to create hype around the movie’s premiere and the upcoming opening of two Star Wars theme parks.
The final piece of the intergalactic puzzle will be the opening of the Star Wars-themed attractions at Disney World and Disneyland in California. Both attractions are under construction and Disney has yet to release opening dates.
