Disney is finally lifting the veil on its (real) lightsaber

The dream of millions of fans across the galaxy will soon come true. On the occasion of today’s Star Wars Day, the Walt Disney Company, as every year on May 4th (May 4th is with you), is raising the veil of its famous revolutionary project that will see the light of day in 2022 – night break that surpasses all, what Disney has ever created before.

May the force be with you

Last month Josh D’Amaro, president of Disney Parks, teased this lightsaber during a presentation on the Avengers campus. If no photo and video was leaked, many journalists and influencers were very excited about this final announcement from Amaro, who closed his conference with the statement “real”.

Scott Trowbridge, head of creation at Walt Disney Imagineering, announced a few minutes after the presentation that the first images of the famous lightsaber would soon be revealed. Unsurprisingly, on the occasion of Star Wars Day, the first video appears on the internet.

We see a young woman who looks like Rey, the heroine of the latest saga, turns around in front of the camera and uses a blue lightsaber. Disney says this gadget will be previewed at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser starting in 2022 at Disney World, Florida.

This new type of lightsaber was developed by the research and development department of Walt Disney Imagineering and is the latest achievement from these talented engineers. Of course, this is not a real lightsaber to cut people open. The idea was to reproduce the famous mechanism for exiting and entering the blade as in the Star Wars films.
Guests participating in the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience will be the first to see the saber in action.

Unfortunately, the sale of the sword does not matter at the moment. The technology used is undoubtedly far too complex and expensive.
