the grim reality of Disney’s “real” lightsaber

In April of this year, we revealed everything to you new model from retractable lightsaber very realistic designed by Disney, which at the time aroused unanimous enthusiasm on the part of fans of Star Wars. But while many thought they would soon be able to fulfill one of their greatest fantasies, recent news broke that dashed the hopes of several generations of fans.

the training of the jedi …

We discovered this incredible lightsaber during the announcement of the new Disney World project, a hotel called Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, located near one of its theme parks in Florida. You will be able to participate during your stay in a plethora of activities, including light saber training. As IGN tells us:

The session consists of using the lightsabers provided to deflect the laser beams fired by a training device attached to the wall. It starts off slow, so you can get a feel for how it works, and then ramps up to Jedi level where you’re forced to block attacks without even seeing the lasers. The lightsaber used in this activity is roughly equivalent to a Force FX lightsaber, although it is a bit shorter, but it is only intended for use in lightsaber training and will not be available at the sale.

It should be understood that the lightsabers in question here will have fixed blades, not retractable as featured for the Galactic Starcruiser launch in April.

… but not with the same lightsaber

It will then be impossible to wield this new retractable lightsaber yourself, being reserved for professional use only. “Unfortunately, visitors cannot use or purchase this lightsaber. It is strictly for the use of artists.” explained IGN. The site GameSpot thus confirmed the terrible news:

Visitors will never use this lightsaber, but it will be part of the Galactic Starcruiser experience.

A real disappointment for a lot of fans, who were delighted to acquire this latest ingenious invention from Disney. A disappointment also for many considering the price: not less than $ 4,800 to stay in the hotel and enjoy all the activities of the Galactic Starcruiser.

This new immersive experience, immersing visitors in an adventure around the Star Wars universe during a stay of three days and two nights, however already seems to be a success, considering that its opening is scheduled for March 1, 2022 and that the hotel Announcement already full for its first four months, according to The Verge.
