Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni and CG supervisor Joel Aron discuss how they created lightsabers that match the look of Jedi weapons from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
As the time period for Star Wars Rebels is close to A New Hope, the show’s creators wanted to match the visuals accordingly. For Aron, this was especially important with the look of the lightsaber. “That’s the one thing that represents being a Jedi,” he says. “I wanted the lightsaber to have that same type of feeling and energy it had in A New Hope.” Through extensive research, including conversations with original lightsaber creator Roger Christian, Aron figured out how the Jedi weapon was originally created. As a result, Kanan’s lighstaber blade closely resembles those found in the original Star Wars, from glow to a slight vibration.
