How The Lightsaber Came to Star Wars


Who hasn’t dreamed of being a Jedi Knight with their own special powers and laser sword? There’s a new mini-documentary from Star Wars on the birth of the lightsaber, one of the coolest weapons ever conceived in film. Star Wars creator George Lucas, actor Mark Hamill, and sound designer Ben Burtt discuss the concept and creation of the lightsaber.

That was a real treat seeing some of that behind the scenes production footage.

    For some reason I can’t access this video. It says it’s private. What do I need to do?

      Apparently Star Wars decided to change the status of the video, you might try contacting them through their YouTube channel. That’s where it was originally.
