Disney Parks shared a new look at the retractable lightsaber currently being developed by the Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development team.

The company debuted a one-minute showcase video teasing the work that goes behind Disney Parks attractions, including the ones included in Galaxy’s Edge. In addition to countless stormtroopers and animatronics, fans can watch the lightsaber fully appear from the hilt. “Yes, that’s a new type of lightsaber Rey is holding in her hand, created by Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development. Guests who experience Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be the first to see it in action – along with so much more – starting in 2022 when this amazing new two-night adventure debuts,” a previous press release reads.

“Watching that lightsaber activate right before your eyes will be just one of the countless ways that, from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, you’ll be plunged into a Star Wars story where your decisions and actions – or even the casual conversations you may have – determine how your personal journey unfolds.”
