Visitors to Galaxy’s Edge will soon have the amazing opportunity to build their very own laser sword at Savi’s Workshop. There, under the watchful eye of Savi – Black Spire Outposts very own Mr Ollivander – you can create a bespoke and unique lightsaber, choosing your own hilt and kyber crystal. The OC Register took a closer look.
After checking in, builders taking part in the experience will meet the shop’s proprietor, said Walt Disney Imagineering executive creative director Chris Beatty.
“Savi’s going to come out and greet you and then bring you into the shop,” Beatty said.
“It’s a very intimate experience,” Beatty said. “You’re in there with only 14 builders and your family.”
The personalized lightsabers will have metal hilts and light-up blades. Kyber crystals added to the hilts will determine the color of the blade. The Jedi weapons will make contact sounds and powering up and down noises just like lightsabers do in the “Star Wars” movies.
Builders will choose from four lightsaber styles:
Peace & Justice, reflecting the Jedi style from the Republic era
Power & Control, a Sith style reflective of the Dark Side of the Force
Elemental Nature, using natural components like Brylark trees, Cartusion whale bones and Rancor teeth
Protection & Defense, incorporating components with ancient and mysterious motifs and inscriptions
Builders will then choose from four Kyber crystals — purple, blue, green or red — that will determine the color of their lightsaber blade.
Based on the first two choices, the builder will get a set of lightsaber pieces salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships that can be combined to create a custom lightsaber.
