Recently, a Universal Orlando Guest brought his lightsaber from Walt Disney World Resort’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge with him to visit Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey. Talk about worlds colliding.

When the residents of Duloc saw the weapon from a galaxy far, far away, Instagram user and YouTuber Jonathan Crichton initially expected the Shrek characters to be confused.

Princess Fiona, however, quipped that the gang knew what a lightsaber was because, “Yeah, we have a TV.” They must be as hooked on The Mandalorian as the rest of us! We’d love to get Shrek’s take on the Darksaber storyline.

As the hilarious video continues, Princess Fiona, Shrek, and Donkey take turns guessing what color Crichton’s Galaxy’s Edge souvenir is. Shrek, at one point, guessed purple, so he’s clearly not as tuned into the Star Wars canon as we might have hoped — there’s only ever been one purple lightsaber and we all know it belongs to Jedi Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson).

Eventually, Princess Fiona won when she guessed blue and an “intense celebration” ensued. Just watch. We promise you won’t regret it.

Get Your Own Galaxy’s Edge Lightsaber

Disney’s official description of the lightsaber construction process reads:

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.

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)

Current Legacy Lightsabers include those belonging to Jedi Masters Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sith Lord Darth Vader, and Kylo Ren/Ben Solo.
