‘Rogue One': How Much Would it Cost to Build A Death Star?

If you’ve been thinking about blowing up Alderaan, start saving

If you’ve ever thought about building your own Death Star — well, you’d better start saving up.

With “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” around the corner, British party site Twizzle put together an infographic that lays out just how much money you would need to build the galactic super weapon.

All in all, the total cost would be $22,452,000,000,000,000,000 — and that’s only to build the shell, not weapons, tractor beams and communications equipment. (To say nothing of independent contractors.)

The Death Star would require about 1,080,000,000,000,000 tons of steel for production, and would cost around $20,000 per kilogram to send the weapon into space. So $21,600,000,000,000,000,000.

In April, Twizzle also figured out how much it would cost to be Captain America in real life. The total cost of being Captain America is a whopping $55.1 million. Then again, it costs around $100 billion to be Iron Man, so being Captain America sounds like a bargain.

“Rogue One,” set before the events of the original “Star Wars” film (but after the prequels) follows a ragtag band of rebels who hatch a plan to steal the Death Star plans.

The film’s protagonist is Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), a galactic outlaw who has come up against both the Empire and the Rebellion. She is given a chance to clear her record if she assists in stealing the Death Star schematics.

“Rogue One” is directed by Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla”) and also stars Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” flies into theaters on Dec. 16.
