The Creation of Star War’s LIGHTSABER

Star Wars creator George Lucas, actor Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), and sound designer Ben Burtt talked about the concept and creation of the lightsaber.

“In discussing the intensity of the lightsaber duels, Lucas says it changed with each film, often times reflecting the emotions of Luke and the ongoing story. Still Luke was not trained as a Jedi in the classic sense. It wasn’t until Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace that audiences would see Jedi battling in their prime; the duels were more aggressive and acrobatic than anything seen in the original trilogy, and only grew in scale and intensity as the series continued.”

It’s plainly the origin of one of the coolest weapons in the history of the galaxy.
