The Kanan Jarrus legacy lightsaber hilt is now available at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The hilt was first teased in the summer of 2022 after a vote by “Star Wars” fans. The hilt was put on display at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland this October. Then the “Star Wars” X account finally announced it would be released on November 1.
Kanan Jarrus Legacy Lightsaber Hilt – $169.99
The lightsaber hilt is made of silver metal with a black grip covering one side and thin black stripes on the opposite side.
It has a brown rectangular button. There is a circular guard before the emitter.
The emitter has a longer piece extended over the blade on one side — a signature element of Kanan’s hilt.
The hilt will light up a blade blue.
Lightsaber blades are sold separately for $50 – $55.
The Kanan Jarrus legacy lightsaber hilt should also be available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Disneyland today and on shopDisney later this fall.
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” 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. Ezra’s third lightsaber, constructed in “Ahsoka,” features an emitter similar to Kanan’s.
