“The weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon, from a more…civilized age.” In 1977, the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi introduced the world to the lightsaber with those words. As the energy blade emitted from that gleaming metal hilt, it captured the imaginations of children and adults without exception.
In this episode of Aggressive Negotiations, Jedi Masters John Mills and Matthew Rushing examine the symbolism, schematics, and style of one of the most iconic weapons in film history! Through decades of films, books, and television shows, the lightsaber has seen its meaning and expression changed to reflect the look and feel of each era. They share the hits, the misses, and what the most meaningful blades of the saga are to them.
