ORLANDO, Fla. – In honor of the upcoming release of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," Epcot’s iconic Spaceship Earth will be transformed into the Death Star.

Fun fact: Saturn's moon, Mimas, looks very similar to "Star Wars" Death Star.

The celebration will be hosted by Disney Parks Blog at Epcot beginning at 9:15 p.m. Dec. 5.

The official "Star Wars" website has shared some details about the film that will make its way to theaters this month.

According to the website, In "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," a group of heroes come together with plans to steal the Death Star, the Empire's most dangerous weapon.

Disney recently released a sneak-peak of what the "Star Wars"-themed land at Hollywood Studios will look like when lit up at night once the park is completed.

They've also announced that work is already underway to bring "Star Wars" attractions to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park in Anaheim, California.
