The new Ezra Bridger Legacy Lightsaber hilt is now available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Ezra Bridger Legacy Lightsaber Hilt – $170
The hilt resembles Ezra Bridger’s second lightsaber. His first was a prototype of his own creation that merged a lightsaber and a blaster, but it was destroyed in a duel with Darth Vader. He then created a more traditional lightsaber hilt, with a black grip and silver accents. While his first lightsaber lit up blue, his second was green.
As with most Legacy Lightsaber hilts, a blade is sold separately.
Ezra’s legacy lightsaber hilt comes in a gray case with a green version of the Starbird symbol created by Ezra’s friend Sabine Wren.
Background on Ezra Bridger
Ezra Bridger is the main protagonist of the “Star Wars Rebels” animated series. He was born the same day the Galactic Empire was officially formed. During the series, he’s a teenager training as a Jedi under Kanan Jarrus and fighting against the oppressive Imperial forces.
In addition to “Star Wars Rebels,” Ezra also features in the “Star Wars Forces of Destiny” episode “A Disarming Lesson,” the novel “Star Wars: Ezra’s Gamble,” and several “Star Wars” video games.
Ezra left his lightsaber behind with his friend Sabine (a Mandalorian warrior and designer of the Rebel Alliance symbol) at the end of “Star Wars Rebels,” when he disappeared into hyperspace with Grand Admiral Thrawn. Sabine and Ahsoka Tano vowed to find Ezra and departed together in the final scene of “Star Wars Rebels.”
‘Ahsoka’ Series Coming Soon to Disney+
The upcoming “Ahsoka” series will act as a live-action follow-up to “Rebels,” with Eman Esfandi portraying Ezra, who was originally voiced by Taylor Gray.
“Ahsoka” stars Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan (apprentice) who was trained by Anakin Skywalker before he turned to darkness and became Darth Vader. Ashley Eckstein originated the voice role in the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” in 2008. Dawson took over the live-action version of the character in “The Mandalorian,” during which Ahsoka was searching for Thrawn.
The first “Ahsoka” trailer revealed Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, both characters who originally appeared in “Star Wars Rebels.”
Sabine was originally voiced by Tiya Sircar in “Star Wars Rebels” and “Forces of Destiny.” Hera was voiced by Vanessa Marshall in “Rebels,” “Forces of Destiny,” an episode of “The Bad Batch,” and the video game Star Wars: Squadrons.
Hera Syndulla was the captain of the “Star Wars Rebels” team. Her droid, Chopper, will also appear in “Ahsoka,” and possibly her young son, Jacen, who only appeared briefly in the final moments of the show.
Hayden Christensen is also set to reprise his role as Darth Vader in “Ahsoka.” The two fought side-by-side in the Clone Wars before the fall of the Republic, and last encountered each other in “Star Wars Rebels” duel.
