Something spectacular happened, Disney has revealed a more ‘real’ lightsaber and it’s spectacular. May the 4th 2021 is the day Disney has revealed this new immersive experience tech, debuting at the opening of Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser.
One of the biggest gifts for Stars fans on May the 4th…the first official video of its real-life lightsaber replica featuring a glowing blade that actually extends and retracts. Unfortunately, it looks like you won’t be able to buy one for your collection any time soon.
First revealed last month during a press event, a handful of screenshots of the new lightsaber replica, developed by Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development leaked.
Shortly after the reveal, a patent dating from 2018 was discovered that provided details on how Disney’s new ‘real’ lightsabers might work: two widened strips of plastic that function like tape measures are extended by a motor and guideways form these two half together to create a cylinder with a strip of LEDs connected to a middle cap to create the glow.
The blade is set to debut at the opening of Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser, a first of its kind immersive two day experience.
