Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers is one of the most sought-after experiences at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Reservations for the lightsaber workshop were not immediately available upon Walt Disney World’s phased reopening and it remained closed to Guests.
As of today, however, Guests can once again made reservations to build their own custom lightsabers when they visit Blackspire Outpost. Savi’s Handbuilt Lightsabers is scheduled to reopen on September 20.
Visit the official webpage for the hands-on Star Wars experience to book a reservation to construct your very own lightsaber.
The process of building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop is described as:
Meet one of Savi’s Gatherers outside his workshop, where you’ll choose one of 4 available hilt themes and receive a cloisonné pin to identify your selection. Themes include:
- Peace and Justice
Salvaged scraps from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships in these Republic-era designs honor the galaxy’s former guardians.
- Power and Control
Originally forged by dark side warriors, this style features rumored remnants from the Sith homeworld and abandoned temples.
- Elemental Nature
This theme embodies the Force—an energy created by all living things, like Brylark trees, Cartusion whale bones and Rancor teeth.
- Protection and Defense
Hilt materials bear mysterious motifs and inscriptions that reconnect users with the ancient wellspring of the Force.
The Gatherers will now help you select the heart of your lightsaber—the kyber crystal, which is available in red, blue, green or violet.
Your lightsaber kit will include the following components:
Next, begin assembling your hilt—parts will be provided based on your theme and cloisonné pin. Each box of parts includes:
- 1 hilt
- 4 sleeves (pick 2)
- 2 emitters (pick 1)
- 2 pommel caps (pick 1)
- 2 sets of activation plates and switches (pick 1 set)
