You are not alone if you are counting down the days until the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Whether you plan to visit Disneyland in May or Hollywood Studios in August you will have the opportunity to experience all the immersive land has to offer. One notable experience blurs the lines between souvenir shopping and attraction, the build your own lightsaber experience.
In an article published last week, The OC Register has given a detailed account of what guests can expect during while building their own intergalactic weapon that just may be the ultimate souvenir.
During their visit to the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu visitors will find the lightsaber building occurring at Savi’s Workshop. The shop proprietor Savi will offer scavenged parts he has collected from his space junkyard. Savi is keeping the shop as secret as possible in order to escape the watchful eye of the First Order.
The experience will last around 20 minutes and reportedly will be kept to small groups according to Chris Beatty, Walt Disney Imagineering executive creative director.
“It’s a very intimate experience,” Beatty said. “You’re in there with only 14 builders and your family.”
Participants will be greeted upon entering by Savi. Once inside the shop, the Gatherers will take over in the Chamber of the Guardians and escort the Padawans into the building experience where guests will choose from four different lightsaber styles. The syles include Peace and Justice, Power and Control, Elemental Nature, and Protection and Defense.
The lightsabers will have metal hilts and light up blades. The blade color will be determined by one of four Kyber crystals builders will include. The crystals are available in purple, blue, green, and red. Builders will be able to purchase a waistband belt clip to attach their hilt so they are not left carrying the lightsaber. The blades are removable and can be stored as to not get in the way while touring.
For those not wanting the full building experience, prebuilt “legacy” options will be available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. At this time the price has not been announced for the experience or pre-built options.
