We’ve seen various versions of the iconic Star Wars lightsaber over the years, but never a REAL one — until recently. During Disney’s D23 event, we got the inside scoop on some of the exciting new things coming to the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser, including another look at Disney’s REAL lightsaber!
Josh D’Amaro, the current Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, gave a live preview of the lightsaber. Let’s check it out!
In true dramatic Disney fashion, the lights went down and the lightsaber came out. See that little blue stub of light? It’s happening!
There it is — isn’t it spectacular?! Watch the video below. The sounds gives us chills. It’s incredible, y’all!

This thing retracts and lights up just like a REAL lightsaber. As you can see, even Josh D’Amaro is thrilled about it.
D’Amaro explained that this is Rey’s lightsaber and he is just borrowing it to show us, and guests onboard the Galactic Starcruiser will use a different lightsaber for training.
We can’t wait to learn more about the Galactic Starcruiser; the opening date is just a few months away! In the meantime, we’re reporting live from D23, so stay tuned for more news!
