INFOGRAPHIC – STAR WARS JEDI AND SITH LIGHTSABERS

The incredible technology dreamed up by George Lucas when he created the Star Wars universe has been imagination food for generations of fans since. None more so than the lightsaber, wielded by those samurai-like mystics the Jedi and their evil counterparts, the Sith. Since Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader had their duel aboard the Death Star, followers have yearned for more of this iconic weapon from the Star Wars franchise.

December 2015 will see the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and with it the return of these awe-inspiring weapons. Kylo Ren, one of the major villains from the new film, wields the latest version of the lightsaber, which has been dubbed “The Cross-Guard Lightsaber” by fans. This imposing design boasts two miniature sabers that act as handguards, similar to a medieval sword. In celebration, the folks at HalloweenCostumes.com put together a beautiful infographic charting some of the most important, most unique, and most recognizable lightsabers from the Star Wars Universe.
