Rey Will Repair Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber in Star Wars: Episode IX
For all of you Star Wars fans, you can remember that Luke Skywalker inherited his lightsaber in Star Wars: A New Hope that belonged to his father, Anakin Skywalker, before he turned to the dark side and became known as Darth Vader. In Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Luke lost that lightsaber when Darth Vader cut off his hand that was holding the weapon. Three decades later the lightsaber became part of Maz Kanata’s collection of Jedi curios, where it called to the scavenger Rey. She wielded it in defeating Kylo Ren, then brought it to Ahch-To and offered it back to Luke. When he refused it, Rey wielded the ancient weapon herself. The lightsaber sheared apart when Rey and Kylo Ren struggled for possession of it aboard the Supremacy in The Last Jedi. Rey then took its broken pieces with her to Crait.
It looks as though the lightsaber is beyond repair, but rather than construct a new lightsaber from scratch for Episode IX, supposedly Rey will repair the weapon already in her possession. That said, it’s unclear if the lightsaber will look exactly like it did before or if there will be some design differences.
There have been a lot of lightsabers throughout the Star Wars franchise, but the one that Rey has is arguably the most iconic. Anakin Skywalker wielded it, Luke Skywalker used it during the earlier years of the Rebellion, and now Rey has it in her possession. Considering that Episode IX is wrapping up the Skywalker Saga, it would be poetic if this weapon could see action one last time.
