That One Lightsaber
This video tells the story of a family through one object that is passed down from one generation to the next. So far it’s been only two generations: Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, who owned this particular lightsaber, but in the coming Star Wars movies we will learn who the next rightful owner will be. My bets are not on Kylo Ren, although he believes he is entitled to it.
That part about “Your father wanted you to have it when you’re old enough” was pure BS, but it was easier than Obi-Wan explaining how many people had been killed by that weapon. Christopher Sherwood compiled clips from a half-dozen Star Wars films to tell the story of Luke’s strangely color-changing lightsaber. (via Buzzfeed)
