Recently, Disney announced that it would launch a Disney lightsaber for real. If you are a Star Wars fan, you know how much importance lightsabers hold in that universe.
So, if you get the opportunity to see that in reality is the biggest dream come true moment for any Star Wars fan. Can you imagine holding the Disney real lightsaber, which is even retractable? Well, this is now a reality!
While initially, no video or photo was released, but later, they released a video of the Disney lightsaber in the making. Disney even emphasized in-person moments.
Thus, they created characters who can be seen holding the lightsaber in hand. These characters include heroes from the Resistance, the mechanic of the ship, and none other than the charismatic captain himself.
So, depending on what choices you make and which activities you do, your experience will accordingly be enhanced. Thus, the Star Wars real lightsaber Disney launch has taken the Star Wars fan to a new high.
Star Wars: Galactic Star Cruiser is a new hotel attraction that will be launched at Disney this year, and the Disney lightsaber is a part of this project.
However, to the misfortune of the Star fans, Disney’s retractable lightsabre is far from the reach of the fans. If you stay at the Star Wars: Galactic Star Cruiser hotel, you will be able to see the Disney lightsaber, but you cannot touch it to get the real feel of holding a lightsaber and fighting a war.
The training with the replica lightsaber
Your expensive ticket to only view the lightsaber will include one perk. A brief lightsaber training is made available for you at that price.
Unfortunately, the lightsaber you will be given for the training person will not be a retractable one. The vibrations and sounds will all be similar.
You can even fight a simulation fighting scene. The training remote on the wall will radiate laser beams, and you can deflect them using your replica lightsaber. Then, in the Jedi level, you can’t even see the lasers, but you will have to block them superfast.
So, except for the feature that allows retraction, these replica lightsabers are more or less similar to the original one. But, if you are going to Disney World with the hope of using the real lightsaber, then this is a caution message.
However, the authorities have assured us that the experience is worth the money. Moreover, you can also see that Disney Lightsaber for real.
Build your own Lightsaber Disney
But did you know you can also build your lightsaber, Disney?
If you are allowed to try your hands-on how to use a lightsaber in Star Wars: Galactic Star Cruiser, then at Savi’s Workshop, you are exposed to the art of making it.
You can start making your lightsaber from the scratches. The colors, the hilt, and the build, all of it are based on your choices.
Inside the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge of Disney World, Savy’s Workshop is a very immersive experience. It is not long. The workshop lasts for only twenty minutes. But, if you are a fan of Star Wars, you will completely enjoy it.
Dos and Don’ts
Here are some important things you should keep in mind before heading to Savi’s workshop:
- Only one guest and one builder can come together to join the workshop after buying a ticket
- The guest will not be able to try the building, only the builder will have that opportunity
- One of the two should be above 14 years old
- Five-year-olds and above are the best-recommended people inside the workshop, accompanied by someone above 14
- No early payment is required, once you arrive at the place, you will then have to pay.
- A carrying case comes with the purchase
- If you are interested in any additional customizations or props, they are available at Dok Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and you can buy them from there
- There are no discounts on these customized Disney lightsabers. So, even if you hold an Annual Passholders ticket, you cannot ask for any discount.
Once you enter the workshop, you will meet the Gatherer, who will then introduce you to the different themes of the handles of the lightsaber. From there, you can choose the one that attracts you the most. Check out the themes below:
Defense and Protection
The motifs on the hilt are mysterious and resemble a mysterious past filled with inscriptions. You can feel a connection with the Force’s ancient wellspring.
This theme particularly is the embodiment of Force. It is an energy that all living things have created, including Rancor teeth, Cartusion Whale Bones, and Brylark trees.
Power and Control
If you incline the darker aspects of life, this theme suits you the best. The power and control themed hilt have remnants from abandoned temples and Sith homelands. Dark warriors used this.
Peace and Justice
Ultimately, the fourth choice of the hilt is peace and justice. Built from the crashed starships’ scrapped material, this particular choice evokes the essence of a bygone era. So, if you love the silence of antiquities, this can be a must for you.
Box and the making of Disney Lightsaber
The box will contain two sets of switches and activation plates, two pommel caps, two emitters, four sleeves, and one hilt.
Once you have selected the kyber crystal, you will have to build the hilt. Once you build the lightsaber, Master Yoda will arrive in the room to make a connection between the builder and their lightsaber.
Before departing, however, you will have to deactivate it. However, you can carry it back to your home. For that, you will get a saber sheath.
So, take some pictures with the Disney lightsaber built by you and take that back at home with you covered in that saber sheath. Let the Star Wars universe descend on your home! Cheers!
