Some of us love the lightsaber because it reminds us of Luke Skywalker and his epic battle against the Empire, but we also have a new generation of Jedi, and new movies to emulate. We now have Rey and her untrained use for the lightsaber. Her heroic journey toward self-discovery is made possible with her lightsaber battles.
- Popular weapon. The lightsaber is the most popular movie weapon of all time. The fictional weapon was first introduced by Star Wars, but it’s taken on a life of its own. Fans love it because not only because of the association with the Star War franchise. It’s also colorful and powerful, which is also why it is a great addition for any Halloween costume.
- Symbolic prop. Of course, the lightsaber is nothing more than a prop, but it acquires additional meaning as you follow the franchise storyline. The color of the crystal for the lightsaber acquires its color based on a Jedi’s meditation, so additional mythos and significance have arisen around the lightsaber.

It’s become the popular weapon of choice for fighters and characters across science fiction realms and universes. It’s perfect for those alien costumes, or just about any sci-fi warrior get-up. You can also just make up your own character from a galaxy far-far-away and include the lightsaber as your trusty weapon.
