A Super Star Destroyer Is Basically a Floating Manhattan

The moment that the Imperial Star Destroyer first loomed across the screen in Star Wars: A New Hope was amazing enough—then Empire upped the game by introducing its big mean momma the Super Star Destroyer. But have you ever thought about comparing the size of that ship with something in real life?

Redditor movielover278 created this visual size comparison between a Super Star Destroyer and the island of Manhattan, and… WOW. Do Imperial soldiers need to use space taxis to get around? What’s the trendiest neighborhood on the Super Star Destroyer? Do they also charge tourists $3 for bottled water? WE HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. (via Laughing Squid)
