A Guide to Galaxy Edge Lightsabers and the Jedi Connection

Since the release of A New Hope in 1977, lightsabers have been synonymous with Star Wars. One unique lightsaber, ‘The Galaxy Edge lightsaber,’ has strong Jedi connections.

So, before you grab your kyber crystals and head to Batuu, let’s delve into the fascinating connection between lightsabers and the Jedi Order. Understanding this bond will make wielding your custom-built Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge lightsaber all the more meaningful.

The Jedi Lightsaber: A Symbol of Balance and Harmony

For the Jedi Knights, lightsabers weren’t just weapons; they were extensions of themselves, imbued with the power of the Force. Constructing a lightsaber was a deeply personal ritual, each step infused with the Jedi’s connection to the Force.

Here’s what makes these lightsabers so special:

  1. Kyber Crystals: The heart of a Jedi lightsaber is a kyber crystal, a Force-attuned gem that determines the blade’s color. These crystals call out to Jedi, and the act of finding and attuning to a kyber crystal signifies a Padawan’s readiness to construct their lightsaber.

Imagine the thrill of selecting your very own kyber crystal at Galaxy’s Edge – a reflection of your own unique connection to the Force!

2. Elegance and Balance: These lightsabers are known for their sleek and elegant designs. They prioritize balance and control, reflecting the Jedi’s commitment to using the Force for defence and peacekeeping. The Galaxy Edge lightsaber-building experience allows you to choose from a variety of themes and parts, letting you craft a lightsaber that reflects your own personal style within the Jedi aesthetic.

3. A Symbol of Hope: In the hands of a Jedi, a lightsaber becomes a beacon of hope, a symbol of the light side of the Force.  Wielding your custom-built Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge lightsaber becomes not just a fun Star Wars experience but a chance to embody those ideals of hope and justice.

Beyond the Jedi

While Galaxy Edge is a fantastic Jedi lightsaber-building experience, the Force isn’t the only path available! The Star Wars universe is vast and diverse, filled with other lightsaber-wielding factions.

Here are some other lightsaber options you might consider:

Lightsabers of the Dark Side: The Sith, the Jedi’s sworn enemies, wield lightsabers powered by their rage and hatred. These lightsabers often have a more brutal and imposing aesthetic, reflecting the dark side’s philosophy.

Galaxy’s Edge might not have a “Sith saber” building option, but you can definitely choose parts with a more aggressive look to channel your inner villain (responsibly, of course!).

Lightsabers of Mandalore: The Mandalorian culture has a rich history with lightsabers, often incorporating them into unique beskar armor designs.  While not strictly Jedi or Sith, Mandalorian lightsabers are known for their functionality and resilience.

Perhaps Galaxy Edge lightsaber may reflect your Mandalorian spirit!

The beauty of Galaxy Edge saber lies in its ability to let you explore your own path within the Star Wars universe. Whether you choose to build a classic Jedi lightsaber or forge a weapon inspired by another faction, you’re creating a symbol of your own connection to the Force.


Galaxy Edge Lightsaber is not just a simple blade; it is about putting together some cool parts.

It’s about channelling the spirit of the Jedi (or perhaps another path!), crafting a weapon that reflects your own connection to the Force. With countless combinations and kyber crystals to choose from,  your Galaxy Edge saber becomes a unique part of your Star Wars legacy, a tangible reminder of your adventures in a galaxy far, far away.

May the Force be with you, young Padawan.
