May the Fourth Be With You! Disney has finally revealed its ‘real’ lightsaber. The teasing began back in April, but- thanks to Star Wars Day, Disney has released a video showcasing the new saber.
This new announcement does not go into too many details sadly. However, die hard fans and the internet itself have, of course, pieced together some ideas on how these new lightsabers work.
This new lightsaber doesn’t require any plastic blades. Instead, there is a retractable, light up blade. To mimic the blade from the movies, there seems to be an almost motorized “tape measure” effect. With a push of a button, the energy blade extends and retracts.
These long awaited lightsabers will be a part of Disney’s newest Star Wars attraction. The Galactic Starcruiser immersive hotel. This experience is a two-night Star Wars Fans ultimate dream. Think of it more as a Disney Cruise than a visit to the parks. Interact with aliens, explore the ship, and become your own hero.
Disney says that the new sabers are still in the works. But, they will be ready for guests to buy when the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel launches in 2022. No official price has been released just yet. However, we do know the sabers you can build at Galaxy’s Edge are currently $200. So, we can expect these to be at least that much, if not more.
Are you excited for these new lightsabers? 2022 can’t get here fast enough. But, until then, May the Fourth Be With You.
