The “Star Wars” X account announced the release date for the new Kanan Jarrus Legacy Lightsaber coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
Kanan Jarrus Legacy Lightsaber Release Date
The lightsaber will be available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities on both coasts on Tuesday, November 1, 2023. It will be available on shopDisney later this fall. The hilt was first teased back in the summer of 2022.
In the video “Star Wars” posted on X, they included a look at the lightsaber hilt.
WDWNT reader Darci C. also previously shared photos with us of the hilt on display at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.
The lightsaber hilt is relatively simple, with black on the handle and a guard before the silver emitter. It has a touch of orange on the pommel and a brown button.
Legacy Lightsaber hilts usually start at $159.99. Blades are sold separately for $50-$55.
Kanan Jarrus was a main character in “Star Wars Rebels.” His name was originally Caleb Dume, but he changed it when he went into hiding following Order 66. Kanan was a Jedi Padawan at the time, training under Master Depa Billaba. Billaba sacrificed herself to ensure Kanan’s escape. He was also assisted by “The Bad Batch,” as seen in the first episode of the spinoff series. While in hiding, Kanan kept his lightsaber in two pieces on his belt so he couldn’t be easily identified as a Jedi.
Kanan eventually joined the rebel cell led by Hera Syndulla, and the two fell in love. Ezra Bridger later joined their group and Kanan taught Ezra the ways of the Jedi. Kanan, like his master, ultimately sacrificed himself to save Ezra, Hera, and the rest of the crew. He never met his son, Jacen, who Hera gave birth to sometime later.
“Star Wars Rebels” characters Jacen, Hera, Ezra, Chopper, and Sabine Wren all appear in “Ahsoka,” currently airing on Disney+. The last member of their team, Zeb, made his live-action debut as a cameo in “The Mandalorian.”
Kanan, who was voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr., hasn’t appeared in live-action and isn’t expected to, but a photo of him is just barely visible on the dash of Hera’s ship, the Ghost, during “Ahsoka.”
Ezra’s second lightsaber, later used by Sabine, was released at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge earlier this year.
