Spaceship Earth Transforms into the Deathstar for Rogue One Event

Nerd heaven or Nerd-vana it is hard to decide on what word best describes the night I had the chance to see the iconic Spaceship Earth at Epcot become the Death Star!

It was a night I have dreamed about! Many a night my hubby and I would think “What if they made Spaceship Earth look like the Death Star?”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We also had a chance to see the new AWR Troopers

“Starting Dec. 16, guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to see AWR Troopers from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” when they join the popular daytime stage show “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away.”

Outfitted in their specialized Stormtrooper armor with a dark, ominous gleam, these soldiers serve as bodyguards and enforcers for Director Krennic, a highly-placed officer within the Advance Weapons Research (AWR) division of the Empire. A new Troopers sequence will join the show, which runs daily at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.”

We even had the opportunity to hear from Mads Mikkelsen who plays Galen Erso in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. Here is what he thought of this amazing night:

Now came the part of the night we all had been waiting for the, the transformation of Spaceship Earth into the Deathstar (excuse the camera click!).
