I need to go back and verify, but I think they are reserving yellow for temple guards. I say this because in Heir to the Jedi I could swear that the Rodian Jedi whose lightsaber that Luke takes from the tomb was originally yellow, but was revised/corrected to be purple in my digital copy.

I need to go back and check a first printing hard copy somewhere but I could swear that's the case.
So far, only yellow has been used by the Jedi Temple Guards.The other colors that have appeared for Jedi Knights, members of the Council and Masters, and their padawans are blue and green commonly. There's been a few one offs like the Darksaber with a black blade (which is even more unique in it's form resembling a katana style blade), Ahsoka's shoto being yellow with a green hue, Tera Sinube had an extremely light blue saber that was almost white, Ahsoka had the white sabers, and of course Mace's purple saber.

I think that Rey's saber would be interesting if it was orange with a golden hue. I don't see why they wouldn't give her a unique lightsaber color.
I'm not a book reader, but it is my understanding that there is something in cannon that says that the Kyber crystals choose their color based on the maker of the lightsaber. If this is actually true and the speculation about Rey's path are true, could Rey's lightsaber be some shade of grey?


That would be great. Doubly so as someone who once had a Jedi RPG character with a platinum colored lightsaber.

They're colorless until they're put in a lightsaber. Why they are the color they are is something that hasn't really been explained AFAIK.

what about when they're put in a giant moon sized space station? Then they turn jedi green.

All of the Empire's weapons are green. IIRC the explanation was the type of gas used for the weapon.

In the middle of the crowd was a young man who looked exactly like Jude Law. Meaning, he looked like he would be more comfortable on a runway than a Star Wars line. But he'd been there for several days and was a huge fan. (He may have even flown in from Australia, if memory serves.) Anyway, the producers looked at him and asked him to get out of the shot. When he asked why, they were incredibly honest. "You're too good-looking," they said. And that's when it hit me how specific the vision for this whole skit really was.

And this is my hope. I'd like to see a color other than blue or green, though.




Do t worry it'll be red.

I did some research during lunch and this appears to be the case.

Kyber are semi-organic and this channel the Force more or less as living things.

To use Kyber, the Empire utilized Erso's research that allows them to be manipulated using energy and force rather than the Force.

I happened to find that tweet string in a Reddit post when I was looking into it right before you asked for it

I saw this earlier today and thought y'all might find it interesting: http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Star_Wars

Just click on the movie links at the bottom and the site goes through the various firearms used to make the weapon props. Some of them are pretty well known (Lewis Gun and broomhandle Mauser for instance), but some of the others weren't as obvious.

Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi is about several Jedi. The German name has a plural in it.

If the Death Star is powered by Kyber crystals and is evil...then shouldn't it's laser be red?

They're mechanically manipulated to produce the power, not by the Dark Side. It's basically a third option, which apparently is always green for whatever reason.

Isn't red the result of synthetic crystals? Is that still canon?

No, Dark Side users dominate the crystal which results in the red color. Kyber can't be synthesized.

I was a gun nut (still am) from an early age. I thought it was pretty genius that they took surplus WWII small arms and made them in to props. Gave such an authentic feel to the original trilogy, especially New Hope. It gave things that "used" look Lucas was striving for.

This might come as a surprise to some of you, but not all of us have been keeping up with the new novels.

Although, I almost bought Ashoka last week.

It's good and an easy read/listen. Plus the audio book is read by Ashley which rules.

Side note: She might be my soul mate. Don't tell my wife.
