Most Star Wars fans know all about the Jedi and the Sith, and the types of lightsabers that characters associated with each side of the force use. However, Disney is looking to build on the Star Wars lore established in the Star Wars films and will allow guests to build lightsabers that fall into one of four special categories: 

Peace and Justice: Salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships, these lightsaber pieces were created for Force wielders of the Republic era. The simple designs reflect the commitment to the devout life of those whom they were created by – the Jedi Order – the once guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.

Power and Control: Reclaimed from the ashes of the rumored Sith homeworld and abandoned Sith temples, these lightsaber pieces were originally forged by the Sith of their time. Characterized by sharp and strong forms, these pieces showcase the brutality and relentlessness of the Sith’s insatiable desire for power and control.

Elemental Nature: As we have been told, The Force is an energy field created by all living things; it surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy together. These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature: the wood from a Brylark tree, a bone of the Cartusion whale or even a tooth from a Rancor.

Protection and Defense: Cultivated from a time forgotten, these earliest lightsaber pieces contain designs and inscriptions that are shrouded in mystery. Believed to be created for protection and defense, conferring anonymity and symbolizing emotional detachment, a lightsaber made from these pieces reconnects the user with the most ancient wellspring of the Force.

Though Disney dipped a toe into the interactive souvenir world with the Banshee adoption experience at Pandora - The World of Avatar, it looks like they are really going for an immersive experience with this new lightsaber building experience looks like it will take things to the next level! This shop will open at Disneyland in just a few weeks, and will come to Disney's Hollywood Studios August 29th.
