Walt Disney World Turned Epcot's Spaceship Earth Into the Death Star

Now that Disney owns Lucasfilm and everything Star Wars, the company’s theme parks are slowly becoming giant advertisements for the upcoming films. Which is totally cool with us if it means awesome publicity stunts like turning Epcot’s giant spherical Spaceship Earth into the Death Star—complete with a working superlaser.

Even if that super laser can’t destroy entire planets, this is still one of the cooler Rogue One: A Star Wars Story promotions we’ve seen leading up to the film’s release on December 16. Next they should fill Disney’s Animal Kingdom with snow and turn it into a real-life version of Hoth.

I dunno. It looks like a moon to me. Just a small moon.
