A lot are now being intrigued with Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) lightsaber in the coming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and its connection to her roots. To recall, in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” she saw Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) blue lightsaber and the moment she touched it, she was brought in a lot of flashbacks.

Does the lightsaber have a connection to Rey’s real personality? The moment Rey has awakened the Force within her, she obtained the lightsaber with the power of her mind when she was fighting Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). She, then, went on a journey to find Luke on the planet of Ahch-To to give back his weapon.

Rey, the new owner of the blue lightsaber

However, in the cover story of Vanity Fair for “Star Wars” 40th anniversary, the Lucasfilm Story Group executive editor Pablo Hidalgo revealed the film company is not considering the blue lightsaber as a possession of Luke or Anakin Skywalker anymore, although they both used it before.

This is because the sword just chose Rey to use it that is quite different how the father and son acquired it.

“In general, a lightsaber belongs to the person who constructed it,” the creative executive said.

He explained that in “The Force Awakens,” Maz said that the lightsaber is now calling Rey. However, he said that it still remains to be seen if the sword is actually calling her to be its rightful owner or for her to find Luke and give it back to him. Later, he revealed that Lucasfilm does consider the blue lightsaber to be owned by Rey, even though she is not the one who built it.

Will Luke’s green lightsaber appear in the new movie?

Hence, Luke’s real lightsaber is the green one that he used in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.” The blue lightsaber, on the other hand, that he used beforehand was owned by Anakin.

The blue sword was made in between the events of “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones” and “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” and was lost in the middle of the Jedi Knight and his father's fight in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”

Evidently, the original blue lightsaber made its way in being seen twice, Polygon reported. The first one was when Obi-Wan Kenobi gave it to Luke in “Star Wars: A New Hope” and later appeared in Maz’s possession in “The Force Awakens.” So, it also remains to be seen if the green lightsaber will make its way in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Although Hidalgo didn’t reveal if the green sword will appear in the new movie, he recalled Obi-Wan’s message that will leave fans’ mind puzzled. “We take to heart the lesson that Obi-Wan tried to impart to Anakin: ‘This weapon is your life.’ We’re not ones to lose track of lightsabers,” he said.
