Star Wars: "The Birth Of The Lightsaber"
Bespin refugee - March 29, 2014






With origins in the swashbuckling films of Errol Flynn and the ray guns of the sci-fi serials, StarWars.com looks at The Birth Of The Lightsaber. A combination of visual effects, Ben Burtt's sound effects, and actors and stuntmen using an evolving fighting style, the lightsaber, or 'laser sword', is "...an elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

The difference between a legion of knights with broadswords and a legion of Jedi with lightsabers? The Lightsabers look far more visually dynamic on-screen.
