In anticipation of the opening of the 'Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser' luxury hotel, Disney revealed a new toy: a realistic lightsaber that lights up and fully retracts. The realistic lightsaber toy eliminates the immersion-breaking problems of other lightsaber toys, namely the inability to retract the blade portion and the lack of immersive LED lights. Instead, the realistic lightsaber has a built-in mechanism that extends the LED-lit blade right out of the handle–exactly like in the Star Wars movies and shows.
The realistic lightsabers are expected to be released before or alongside the opening of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser luxury hotel. The new hotel venture is slated to deliver an immersive two-day Star Wars experience to guests, and the realistic lightsabers will likely play a part.
