Make Your Own Lightsabers at Savi’s Workshop in Galaxy’s Edge
Here at MickeyBlog we are so excited about the details that have been trickling in regarding the awesome merchants at Black Spire Outpost when Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland Resort in just a few short weeks (May 31st). That’s why we can’t wait to share the news that Disney has released more exciting details about Savi’s Workshop. This is the place visitors will go to customize your very own one-of-a-kind lightsaber!
Guests who feel the call can seek out Savi’s hidden workshop and arrange an appointment to meet with the Gatherers– a group of men and women who have dedicated their lives to resorting balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of the FORCE and the ancient ways of the Jedi. The Gatherers will guide those who seek their assistance in the creation of your own customized lightsaber. As “keepers of the Force,” they have passed down their knowledge from generation to generation, striving to keep the flame of hope alive. Savi (the proprietor) was even one of the original Gatherers and a friend to Lor San Tekka (whom we met briefly at the beginning of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”). Like Lor, Savi was a believer in the ideals of the Jedi Order and helped to pass on his knowledge of Jedi lore. He created a salvage business as a front to hide his secret mission of guiding the next generation of Force wielders and helping them create their unique lightsabers.
Visitors to Batuu looking for their own authentic weapon will be spoiled for choice as the Gatherers have amassed an impressive collection of kyber crystals and other saber parts from around the galaxy. Those ready to learn this knowledge will find a symbol displayed on the front of the workshop indicating that they are in the correct location and they must give the secret phrase to the Gatherers to enter inside. Once inside the workshop, the Builders will be surrounded by various odds and ends, pieces and objects. These parts become key elements in the building and refinement of their lightsabers.
At the center of the room is the Builder’s Table, a large oval-shaped table assembled from ancient pieces salvaged from across the galaxy that can accommodate up to 14 builders at a time to choose their crystal and craft their lightsaber.
There are four themes of lightsabers that guests can build:
Peace and Justice: Salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships, these lightsaber pieces were created for Force wielders of the Republic era. The simple designs reflect the commitment to the devout life of those whom they were created by – the Jedi Order – the once guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
Power and Control: Reclaimed from the ashes of the rumoured Sith homeworld and abandoned Sith temples, these lightsaber pieces were originally forged by the Sith of their time. Characterized by sharp and strong forms, these pieces showcase the brutality and relentlessness of the Sith’s insatiable desire for power and control.
Elemental Nature: As we have been told, The Force is an energy field created by all living things; it surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy together. These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature: the wood from a Brylark tree, a bone of the Cartusion whale or even a tooth from a Rancor.
Protection and Defense: Cultivated from a time forgotten, these earliest lightsaber pieces contain designs and inscriptions that are shrouded in mystery. Believed to be created for protection and defense, conferring anonymity and symbolizing emotional detachment, a lightsaber made from these pieces reconnects the user with the most ancient wellspring of the Force.
