Watch Mark Hamill Reunite With His Lightsaber From Return Of The Jedi


There have been a lot of famous lightsabers in the Star Wars universe, and in “The Force Awakens” one of the most iconic lightsabers of the series returned. As we saw in the film, Maz Kanata gave Luke Skywalker’s original lightsaber to Rey, and Rey later handed it off to Luke at the very end of the film.

Luke Skywalker was reunited with his original lightsaber on screen, and recently Mark Hamill was reunited with one of his original lightsabers while filming for an episode of his show “Pop Culture Quest.”

In the upcoming episode Mark Hamill is reunited with the lightsaber that he used in “Return of the Jedi.” The collector in possession of the lightsaber also reveals to Mark that the lightsaber handle has a long history with the Star Wars franchise, as it was also the lightsaber that Alec Guinness used while filming “A New Hope.”

Hamill also goes on to talk a little bit about what it was like to film the lightsaber scenes during the original trilogy, and you can see what he had to say in the clip below.

Mark Hamill is set to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in the yet to be officially titled “Star Wars: Episode VIII” which will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
