Annlyel explores the possibility of Rey wielding a double-bladed lightsaber in J.J Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode IX
Why do we love Star Wars? That question could lead to over a hundred different answers but one of those reasons is clearly the lightsabers. From Luke Skywalker‘s simple yet magnificent blue lightsaber to Kylo Ren‘s iconically awesome crossguard lightsaber these weapons are easily some of the coolest creations ever conceived in fiction. And what makes lightsabers so cool is that each saber is uniquely specific to its owner who makes it.
For the duration of the sequel trilogy Rey has used the infamous Skywalker lightsaber in her battles but now that it’s broken she will have to (hopefully) build her own saber for Episode IX and that’s an exciting prospect indeed. What would her lightsaber look like? What color will it be? There are many questions that I have about this topic but one thing that would officially make Rey the coolest Jedi ever to appear in these films is for her to own a double-lightsaber. And it makes all the sense in the world.
Rey’s weapon of choice through her years on Jakku was a quarterstaff and she knows how to use it too, which was evident in The Force Awakens. Wouldn’t it just be fitting for Rey to return with an incredible double lightsaber to wow fans around the world? I definitely think so. Imagine the look on Kylo Ren’s face if she returned with such an incredible weapon at her disposal.
Am I predicting something…epic? 🙂
