We’re only a week away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and little bits of information continue to be teased to keep fan anticipation at a fever pitch. Next up we have Paste Magazine, which has director Rian Johnson teasing a “new hue” of lightsaber making an appearance in the film.
No other details are given, of course, outside of mentioning Rey’s blue and Kylo Ren’s red lightsabers will also be seen. Luke Skywalker started off with a blue blade before transitioning to a green lightsaber in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Maybe we’ll be seeing both the green saber and the “new hue” that Johnson has teased.
What do you think? Could the green saber be making an appearance, or will an entirely new lightsaber be introduced? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, Lupita Nyong’o, and Andy Serkis. Here’s the official synopsis:
