The new book “Star Wars: The Lightsaber Collection” has unveiled a new look at Rey’s yellow lightsaber seen at the end of “The Rise of Skywalker.”

According to StarWarsNewsNet, the book shows an image of Rey wielding the lightsaber, which she used after defeating Emperor Palpatine on Exegol and when she appears on Tattooine.

The description of the lightsaber explains that elements found in each of the films appears on Rey’s design. For example, the lightsaber had a part of the garment she wore on Jakku.

  • “The yellow blade distinguishes her from other Jedi, suggesting she’s a new protector of the galaxy, since this blade color usually belonged to Jedi Temple guards. However you interpret this lightsaber design, Rey is more than a Jedi, a guardian, or a last name. And I really don’t think her story is finished, so it’s nice to get better acquainted with this lightsaber,” according to StarWarsNewsNet.

ComicBook.com published the full description of the lightsaber as written in the book.

She eyed the unfinished lightsaber on her workbench. It wasn’t ready yet, and the one she’d painstakingly repaired — Luke’s — didn’t belong to her. So her quarterstaff would have to suffice as a weapon. Which was just fine. It had served her well on Jakku for years. In fact, someday, once she had mastered this lightsaber-building business, she might design one that felt more like a quarterstaff in her hand. Familiar and hefty. Two business ends. Maybe with a hinge in the middle for portability.

Kylo Ren’s original saber

Early concept art in “The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens” revealed Kylo Ren would have had a lightsaber with a blue and red blade, which might have changed the ending of “The Force Awakens,” as I wrote for Deseret.com.

  • “Because a lightsaber’s Kyber crystal ‘bleeds’ when wielded by a dark Jedi or Sith, the crystal (and blade) turns red,” according to ScreenRant. “If the blue blade turned red at the moment that Kylo Ren stabbed Han Solo, it could have been the perfect way to show his commitment to the dark side. The transformation of the lightsaber blade would not only be an amazing visual, but it would also advanced the story in a fascinating, new way.”
