According to rumors, the new toys light sabers do not need those awkward plastic propellers. But there is a retractable light-up blade protruding from the handle. (That looks quite normal), just like a crackling energy blade in movies and shows.

Disney says the new swords are still in the works by Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development, but they are expected to be available to guests when the Galactic Starcruiser hotel experience launches in 2022. Disney’s “regular” numbers cost $ 200 each at Galaxy’s Edge. Expect an upgraded version to be priced somewhere in that ballpark. (If not more)
