Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit the theatres back in the month of Dec, but we are still consistently learning more about J. Abrams’ massive blockbuster. The film had contained plenty of twists in its plot, many of which were expanded upon in the months since the movie released through supplemental material like Episode IX’s books.
One of such twists was related to Leia’s Jedi training, as Carrie Fisher’s signature character was finally given a lightsaber of her own. And now the concept of art has revealed more details about Leia’s Saber.
About halfway through the movie, Rey travels to Ahch To in hopes of living her days in solidarity like Luke Skywalker. But then he suddenly appears as a Force Ghost, revealing that Leia trained with him in the ways of the Jedi before giving her lightsaber up. Then eventually the character of Daisy Ridley takes up that weapon and now we can see a closer look.
This is perhaps the most detailed look that we have seen of the lightsaber. Because while Rey eventually took up to battle Emperor Palpatine and his forces, some of the design elements might have been lost on audiences who were just trying to take in all of the movie’s dizzying contents.
The look at Leia’s lightsaber design for the movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes to us from the social media of artist Mathew Savage. Mathew regularly uses his talents as a concept artist, helping to develop a is a visual language for blockbusters like Episode IX. The artist also worked on other entries in the galaxy far, far away including The Force Awakens, Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
