After the slight disappointment of the three prequel movies, it’s fair to say that the Star Wars universe came back with a resounding bang back in 2015 with the release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The success spread across all ages, from fans or the original films to children who were first experiencing the galaxy far, far away. All of this has bumped up the anticipation of this year’s galactic release, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Existing within the Star Wars universe but very much a separate film in its own right, Rogue One takes place between Episodes III and IV and follows a group of rebels who attempt to steal plans for the Empire’s most dangerous of weapons, the Death Star. These plans are vital in the original three films, helping Luke Skywalker and co stop Darth Vader’s planet-destroying space station.
We’ve all remember the impressive structure from the original films, a moon-like space station capable of obliterating an entire world with just the flick of a switch. It’s fair to say it must have cost Darth Vader and his army of stormtroopers a pretty penny or two.
Well, now you can finally see how much it would cost if you fancied putting one together yourself. Twizzle has created this great infographic titled ‘How Much Would It Cost To Build A Death Star?’.
This is essential reading for any Star Wars fanatic, looking into every facet of the most dangerous of weapons, from the cost of its materials to the time in which it would take to build.
If you have a few spare gazillion dollars lying around and fancy one of your own, take a look at the infographic below.
