Padawan Caleb Dume’s lightsaber is joining the fleet of sabers available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, making some fans scratch their heads, given this lightsaber is barely seen in Rebels.

While the Disney Parks Blog has not revealed an official release date for the Kanan saber, fans will be able to purchase Plo Koon’s Legacy Lightsaber Hilt beginning July 8, 2022.

On top of that, Disney revealed a limited edition version of Ahsoka Tano’s (Ashley Eckstein) Star Wars: Rebels’ lightsaber, producing only 6,000 of the exclusive cases that play Tano’s theme song when opened.

Disney Parks Blog writes:

Once known by the name Caleb Dume, Kanan Jarrus survived the Emperor’s purge, going underground for years and hiding the truth about who he really was. Carrying a lightsaber openly in the age of the Empire would have given away his affiliation as a Jedi, so he kept his lightsaber in pieces on his belt only to be assembled when necessary.

The world of George Lucas is expanding beyond Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Darth Vader (James Earl Jones), Jedi Master Yoda (Frank Oz), Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), Darth Maul (Ray Parker), Anakin Skywalker (Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch/Temura Morrison), Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), Grogu (AKA “Baby Yoda”), Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks), Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), Moff Gideon(Giancarlo Esposito), the Millennium Falcon, the Death Star, and The Clone Wars.

Within the Star Wars franchise, Lucasfilm is moving past Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) or the controversial Rian Johnson Star Wars film The Last Jedi (2018) as we dive into the Old Republic or explore new realities of the Star Wars universe with each new TV show or the upcoming Star Wars game like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 or Star Wars Eclipse.
