Disney Imagineering Video Features “Real” Lightsaber

Recently an article named Walt Disney Imagineering as a “Best Workplace for Innovators” and in the article it highlighted recent work by their Imagineers.  One of the excited pieces- which was quick- was a shot of Imaginneer wielding a retractable lightsaber.


Right around the 43-second park, pause the video. A blue “real” lightsaber — the ubiquitous “Heroes’” blade wielded by Anakin, Luke, Rey, and Ben — extends.

The video and article focused a lot on the Imagineering that went into Galaxy’s Edge.

Check out the video to see the amazing work Imagineers are doing.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
