    We recently built a lightsaber at Galaxy’s Edge and we are having a problem removing the blade. Can somebody help with this? My little Jedi is very upset right now.

    Welcome, Stephen to planDisney, where vacation planning from Batuu to Tatooine is what Master Jedi like me do best.

    Not so long ago I remember building my first lightsaber at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The green kyber crystal called out to me and when I finally completed the task, the blade ignited. I may or may not have had a tear in my eye. Since then Savi and associates have helped me add a blue-bladed lightsaber to my collection. Ahsoka Tano would be proud of my dual blades.

    Once I got back to my home planet, I needed to provide more power to my lightsaber so I removed the blade in order to accomplish this more efficiently and carefully. Here is how I disassembled it.

    1. Turn the lightsaber off
    2. Have your Padawan place the lightsaber on a table or on the ground in front of them.  
    3. With one hand, hold the hilt, and with the other hand secure the blade close to the top of the hilt (emitter piece).
    4. Push the blade into the hilt then twist clockwise. The blade should release.
    5. Pull the blade out of the hilt. There will be some resistance as it slides cleanly away.
    6. To place it back, just reverse the order.
    7. Ignite to make sure the blade is connected
    8. Continue your padawan training
    If you have any other issues with the blade then contact Disney Merchandise Guest Services at (877) 560-6477 or email at

    planDisney Pro Tip: Depending on use, the power to my lightsaber needs to be replaced every 12 months. If you plan to be carbon-frozen then remove the batteries to prevent corroded contacts until your lightsaber is needed again.

    Please feel free to ask me any other questions about your padawan's training. I can be a powerful ally and that is no Jedi Mind Trick.

    Stephen, May the Force Be With You.
