Luke's Lightsaber

Post by jedi kai » Tue May 10, 2005 11:42 pm

Hey, in Return of the Jedi, Luke's lightsaber was green .... like Yoda's.

Think it's a coincidence or perhaps Luke refashioned one of Yoda's lightsaber into his own? .... hmmm.... :wink:

It was said that green blade will be seen much better against Tatooine's desert terrain and so, it was favoured instead of a blue one. (-;

Quite a lame explaination... like in Episode III, they decided to keep Anakin's saber blue because it can be seen better against the Mustafar background... and they say a Red saber would be harder, these explainations really quite lame...

WHERE did you read that? I thought Anakin simply did not have time to construct a red one. And besides, Obi-Wan needs to claim Anakin's blue saber after besting him..

Got such thing meh? His blade is blue so that it can be accounted on IV where obi wan showed Luke the blue blade.

But it kinda looks boring when 2 similar blue blades clash at mustafar, at least a blue and a green should look nice though, but again, for continuity sake, yea, 2 blue blades, no choice.

for me i like it that way with 2 blue sabers. obi-wan & anakin, brothers. close friends. buddies. even their sabers are the same colour. it adds to the overall emotional impact of the duel.

Ya hor, i didnt even notice that, must have forgotten some time ago. But the duel is a bit confusing coz when the 2 blades clash, u cant see who is whos blade at the first glance.

confusing. i agree. still, i'm impressed ILM claimed they did'nt speed up the duel with digital enhancements. except for the part where they twirled their sabers at unnatural speed
