More and more details are coming out about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the brand new theme park opening at both Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort later this year. One thing we can’t wait to try: customized lightsabers.
At Savi’s Workshop, guests will have the chance to meet the Gatherers, what Disney calls “a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force.”
It’s there that guests can assemble their own lightsaber. In a roundup of what is known about the park so far, Slashfilm reports that there will be several different kits to choose from.
Peace and Justice kits feature Republic-era Jedi designs and Power and Control kits are the sabers of the dark side. There are also Elements and Nature kits that use “raw and natural materials” and Protection and Defense kits that have medieval styling.
You can also choose the color of your lightsaber from colors like red, blue, green, and our personal favorite, Mace Windu purple.
The whole enterprise is reminiscent of Ollivander’s Wand Shop at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. One key difference: there aren’t any points throughout the park that you need a lightsaber to interact with.
Apparently, these lightsabers are of higher quality than your standard, Hasbro-made plastic models. That means they don’t come cheap (as we imagine nothing at Galaxy’s Edge will). The saber’s hilt will run you $110 and the blade itself is $50.
The Disneyland version of the park in Anaheim opens this summer. Floridians will have to wait until the fall for the grand opening of the Orlando location.
