Guests who visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be able to build their own custom lightsaber by heading over to Savi’s Scrapyard in the Black Spire Outpost. In the Scrapyard is a hidden workshop where guests can set up an appointment to meet the Gatherers – “a group of men and women who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of the Force and the ancient ways of the Jedi.”
The Gatherers have amassed a great collection of stories, kyber crystals, and other saber parts from around the galaxy. As “keepers of the Force,” they have passed down their knowledge from generation to generation, striving to keep the flame of hope alive. Savi was one of the original Gatherers and a friend to Lor San Tekka (whom we met briefly at the beginning of Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Like Lor, Savi was a believer in the ideals of the Jedi Order and helped to pass on his knowledge of Jedi lore. He created a salvage business as a front to hide his clandestine mission of guiding the next generation of Force wielders and helping them create their unique lightsabers.
A symbol will be displayed on Savi’s Workshop and indicates that guests are in the right place. They will be required to give a secret phrase to the Gatherers in order to be permitted inside. Inside the workshop, various “odds and ends, pieces and objects” are waiting for Builders (you!) and will become key elements in the customization of the lightsabers. The large oval Builder’s Table that’s located in the center of the room was “assembled from ancient pieces salvaged from across the galaxy” and will accommodate up to 14 builders at once.
Four themes of lightsabers will be available for Builders to choose from:
Peace and Justice: Salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships, these lightsaber pieces were created for Force wielders of the Republic era. The simple designs reflect the commitment to the devout life of those whom they were created by – the Jedi Order – the once guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
Power and Control: Reclaimed from the ashes of the rumored Sith homeworld and abandoned Sith temples, these lightsaber pieces were originally forged by the Sith of their time. Characterized by sharp and strong forms, these pieces showcase the brutality and relentlessness of the Sith’s insatiable desire for power and control.
Elemental Nature: As we have been told, The Force is an energy field created by all living things; it surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy together. These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature: the wood from a Brylark tree, a bone of the Cartusion whale or even a tooth from a Rancor.
Protection and Defense: Cultivated from a time forgotten, these earliest lightsaber pieces contain designs and inscriptions that are shrouded in mystery. Believed to be created for protection and defense, conferring anonymity and symbolizing emotional detachment, a lightsaber made from these pieces reconnects the user with the most ancient wellspring of the Force.
