To announce the soon to be released Rogue One Star Wars movie as well as some new Star Wars additions to Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park, the Disney Parks Blog held a Meetup at Disney's Epcot. Blog readers received Rogue One t-shirts, snacks (including salted caramel stormtrooper cupcakes), trivia prize giveaways, Rogue One announcements from actor, Mads Mikkelsen (Galen Erso), and a fantastic display of projection technology morphing the iconic Spaceship Earth into an active, spinning, FIRING DEATHSTAR!
