Today, May 4, 2021, is the day on which the so-called Star Wars Day, the anniversary designed to pay homage to the distant galaxy created by George Lucas in the first, historic trilogy of Star Wars. For the occasion, Disney has decided to present a new project particularly awaited by fans, which promises to send all aspiring Jedi Knights into jujube soup: a the laser drops in all respects similar to those challenged by the heroes of the saga, whose arrival is expected during the next year.
In fact, in 2022 it will arrive Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, an interactive experience reserved for visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida (here the original news). More specifically, fans will be able to experience an adventure lasting two days and two nights, in which they will be able to explore the depths of the galaxy aboard the cruiser. Halcyon. It will be a real adventure to be experienced firsthand, with lots of secondary characters to surround the story.
Just on the occasion of the debut of Galactic Starcruiser the original lightsaber will also be shown, the original idea of which dates back to 2017. From what little it is possible to understand from the short presentation video that you find above, the weapon seems to faithfully replicate both the appearance and the functions of the sword held by Luke Skywalker and partners. Ben Ridout, developer for virtual reality, recently explained that the mechanism of the weapon will be very similar to that of a retractable steel tape measure, since the main blade will be composed of two coils of translucent material, capable of to project shine as soon as the sword is activated.
Said so it seems a daydream for every fan of Star Wars self-respecting, waiting to find out any release on the international market and any list price, most likely not exactly for all budgets.
