Of course, such gutted planets are pretty but unrealistic. The body's own gravity pull would quickly crunch the remaining hulk back into a sphere.
Unless it were torn apart by tidal forces to form a ring around its primary.
In which case it still wound't be the shattered eggshell looking thing seen in as the moon and all over the end titles.
