The idea that the Empire, or the First Order, can keep churning out Death Star after Death Star gets a little harder to swallow when you watch this CG timelapse by Benjamin and Isaac Botkin, which shows just how incredibly complex it is to build a moon, or planet-sized space station.

The short film is just two minutes long (with an original Star Wars-esque score composed by Benjamin), but I would happily sit in a theatre for two hours watching how every last section of the Death Star was assembled. If anything, it would prove once and for all that there are bathrooms on board — somewhere.
