Disney has created an actual lightsaber. Sort of.
During a virtual presentation about the opening of Disney parks, an exec showed off the lightsaber, turned it on, and said, quote, “It’s real.” Then the video ended.
A reporter who was in attendance said, quote, “the way the light activated from the hilt was similar to how lightsabers activate in the ‘Star Wars’ films.”
Later in the day, a Disney creative boss said, quote, “A lot of questions today about whether the lightsaber that [was] revealed today was real or CGI, and, whether I’d share photos or video. Yes it was/is really real, and . . . not yet.”
There’s no word where, when, or how this thing is going to be used, but since it was unveiled during a presentation on the Disney parks, maybe it’ll be something you actually get to play with.
Which would suggest that while they turn on and off like the ones in the movies, they probably DON’T cut people in half.
A lot of questions today about whether the lightsaber that Josh D’Amaro revealed today was real or CGI, and, whether I’d share photos or video.
