To whom it may concern at The Walt Disney Company and / or Lucasfilm:
Show me the damn lightsaber. I know you have a real one now. And it’s time to fess up.
There’s plenty of evidence that a better toy saber has been on Disney’s mind for a while. The company’s current crop of replica props and customized Galaxy’s Edge sabers are already hugely popular, to start.
To be clear, whatever Disney has, it isn’t a real lightsaber like in the movies. People have tried to make those for years and ultimately, it isn’t possible due to the amount of energy and the danger involved. Gotta leave that with the Star Wars franchise, I’m afraid.
But if you wanna look at a cool lightsaber made from plasma (that requires “a massive power pack and is almost certainly not safe to sell as a children’s toy at a theme park”), check out the one below.
The lightsaber actually took 14 hours to make (according to Steven’s comment on the video) which makes his feat even more remarkable. His materials included a block of wood, tools to shape it, spray paint, and masking tape (light beam not included).
The Last Jedi, the final episode of the third Star Wars trilogy, is in cinemas now. But long-time fans still love those in-between movies. Even though Solo wasn’t the success Disney had hoped for, Rogue One was and now there’s a new movie in the Star Wars cinematic universe. Except this one is fan-made.
KENOBI is the creation of Jamie Costa and it tells of the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi living in cave in Tatooine as he watches over Luke Skywalker during his formative years. It’s only 15 minutes long but enough to whet your appetite for Star Wars what-ifs.
Who is Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Master who acted as a mentor to Anakin Skywalker, who later became Darth Vader, and his son, Luke Skywalker. He was originally under the tutelage of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace.
Costa also played Han Solo in another fan film called Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade, 2 years before the release of Solo. He’s clearly one step ahead of Disney. The film also stars James Arnold Taylor who voiced Obi-Wan in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Watch KENOBI below and if you feel so inclined, grab yourself another fan-made Star Wars creation in the form of this Star Wars decanter.
While every episode had more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese, one thing did come to fruition: Cleganebowl. If you have no idea what that means, I recommend you read Vulture’s explainer on Cleganebowl. It’s basically The Hound vs. The Mountain – Sandor Clegane vs. Gregor Clegane. But there’s more to it as Vulture explained.
I’ve not put any spoiler alerts because you should have seen it all by now. But if not, tough luck. Sandor finally faced Gregor in Cersei’s crumbling castle and it was a futile battle from Sandor’s perspective. Why? Because Gregor was pretty much undead. But that didn’t stop him trying. In the end, he and his brother died at the hands of his ultimate fear – fire. But what if their sword battle had played out with lightsabers from Star Wars?
ImmersionVFX on YouTube reimagined Cleganebowl with lightsabers and it looked spectacular. It’s interesting that the sword-wielding motions translated perfectly to lightsabers; they never looked out of place, physically or visually.
Perfect for whiskeys, cognacs, and wines, this Star Wars Glass Stormtrooper Decanter can hold up to 750ml of your finest alcohol. Picture this: you get home from a trying day on the new Death Star. All you want to do is hang up your lightsaber, unwind to an acoustic cover of the Imperial March in front of a fire. But you want something to drink. Then you remember you have a Star Wars Stormtrooper decanter filled with Corellian wine.
I’m mixing fantasy with reality here but the fact is a stylish, high-quality Star Wars decanter is the perfect gift for any Stormtrooper enthusiasts. Whether you’re on the side of the Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance.
Well, think again as an alternative order has been proposed called “The Machete Order”. Absolutely No Machete Juggling writer Rod Hilton came up with the idea that suggests you watch the Star Wars films in the following order:
You’ll notice Episode I: The Phantom Menace has been omitted. The primary reason for this isn’t because it sucks (although that certainly helps making the decision to ignore it much easier), but you’ll need to read the full Machete Order blog post as to why it didn’t make the cut.
