The Disney park Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is about to get its first piece of premium gaming-themed merchandise. That’s because fans voted for Cal Kestis’ lightsaber from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to be sold as a collector’s item.
Disneyland and Disney World park-goers (once those become a thing again) who visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge can shop at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. Dok is apparently a collector of Jedi and Sith artifacts. He sells Jedi and Sith holocrons, art from the Jedi Temple, and even some Empire equipment. But the jewels of his collection are quality replicas of famous lightsabers.
These metal replicas sadly lack functioning energy blades, but still make great decorations. You can already find movie lightsabers like Obi-Wan’s and Kylo Ren’s, but a recent vote on the Disney Parks Blog let fans choose the next piece. The winner was Cal Kestis’ uniquely long lightsaber.
Cal’s saber will hit the parks sometime in 2021, presumably when it’s safe to go to Disney again. The victory is somewhat of a surprise, considering that many Fallen Order players found Cal to be a boring protagonist. His lightsaber is sweet, though, having an interesting emitter design and a DIY feel to it. It’d make a great display piece above anyone’s gaming setup.
