Disney unveils its first real-life retractable lightsaber — and it looks incredible
Cue the "Take My Money" memes because Disney revealed something they've been working on for a while: a real, working lightsaber.
As part of the many revelations on May 4th, a.k.a. on May 4th (Be With You), a.k.a. Star Wars Day, Disney Parks released the first video of this beauty in action.
The saber will be part of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a new Star Wars attraction coming to Disney World in 2022 that seeks to immerse guests in the galaxy far, far away by taking them aboard the Halcyon Starcruiser for a multi-day story experience become .
Josh D'Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, unveiled the saber during a park preview in April and exclaimed, "It's real!" However, until now, no photos or videos of this elusive artifact have been made available to the public.
Attendees can see characters like Rey with the new lightsaber developed by Walt Disney Imagineering to "create dramatic personal moments previously only seen in movies or shows," according to a description.
The general guest experience at the Galactic Starcruiser depends on the decisions they make and the activities they wish to undertake. The characters on board include "the strong and charismatic captain of the star cruiser, the courageous mechanic of the ship, heroes of the resistance" and much more.
But it's safe to say that everyone wants to check out this saber.

A press release also mentions a special hub where guests can learn the old ways of the lightsaber and stand against a training remote.
"Light. Dark. A balance," says the Rey character as she lights her weapon in a teaser video and quotes Daisy Ridley's character from The Last Jedi.
