After Disney hosted an online poll in which every Star Wars fan could vote to have their favorite lightsaber come to life at Galaxy’s Edge, Kana Jarrus is finally joining the ranks of Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s legendary lightsaber collection.
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.
Kanan’s better-known lightsaber features an entirely different design that most Rebels fans argue is more popular than his Padawan weapon.
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.
