Wasn't the blue lighsword that Anakin and Luke used featured in The Force Awakens?
Like it's supposed to be the lightsaber Anakin used before losing to Obi Wan, and the lightsword that Obi Wan later gives to Luke?
I thought Luke lost it into the pit at Bespin after having his arm cut off, and therefore made his own lightsword.
Am I just missing something or is this just extremely shitty writing?
Maz says 'thats a story for another time' and thats all the explanation in the movie. Guess JJ wants to leave important things like that and why the fuck rey can instantly do crazy jedi shit with seemingly no training to be explained by different people/writers. Fuck JJ
Did you not pay attention to what they said in the scene? Maz found it somehow and didn't say how "that's a story for a different time", its bad writing but i assume its so they can do some dumb tie-in comic to show how she found it
>Rey, this lightsaber was your grandfather's. He used it to slaughter hundreds of Jedi and massacred many children with it. He was a good friend
>Wasn't the blue lighsword that Anakin and Luke used featured in The Force Awakens?
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. It just looks like an uncanny duplicate.
Think about it. It's there, and we never actually see the fate of his hand or lightsaber, so clearly it didn't fall to the planet.
What we see of the vents only occurs when he falls into one and is let out, which suggests it registered his weight or presence. The hand and lightsaber may have been too small to register, or they simply fell somewhere that they couldn't be sucked into a tube. At least the lightsaber would have later been discovered by an engineer or someone.
Why are people still dwelling upon this?
I don't have a problem with not getting all of the answers immediately. That was literally the problem with the prequels
They obviously teased some sort of happening during that flashback sequence
From Attack of the Clones it seemed pretty clear to me that Dooku/Sheev ordered the creation of the clones in Sifer's name, but apparently in the 3D reddit toon they gave him a whole backstory with 'the power of foresight' and shit
The Ugnaughts of Bespin and sold it to Weequay Traders at the Flea Market of Rishi, who then lost it in a Paazak game to Maz Kanata. You would know this if you read the Rey vs Kylo Ren coloring book (all newly published Star Wars material is canon).
>i'm a grown ass man
No, this is a grown ass man
As far as I'm concerned it exist because the movie actually does a good job (surprisingly) of subtly showing that Sheev is pulling shady shit and no more info is necessary
I agree that you can reasonably assume that Sheev orchestrated it all, it's just that the jedi make a big point of wanting to investigate this sifer dias shit and then no one ever brings it up again. So no, it's not explained and I doubt we'll get proper explanations for half the shit in TFA outside of autistic comics and shit no adult would ever read.
Is that Leia arm that's getting the saber!?!?
I just fucking noticed this and what the fuck was this shot even filmed? WTF was the original idea? Was it just a shot for the trailer to mislead people?
>"YOU HAVE TO BUY OUR CANON $10 COMICS TO FIND OUT MORE :DDDD"
Yeah, sounds like the really cared about conveying the story fully to all audiences just through the movie
Also, shouldn't the lightsaber be completely destroyed judging from the fact that it fell miles down
I mean, don't you think an AR-15 would be much operable, let alone be in good-looking shape, if you dropped it from Empire State Building
Well, it's not canon any more, but in the EU there was some guy that offered his body up as a replacement for Sheev's soul/force ghost/whatever should he die, and Sheev gains control of that body, or some shit like that.
Then there is the fact that it's canon that Maul survived being cut in half and falling down a giant pit, so as long as he got out before the Death Star blew up, Sheev could very well still be alive.
Basically they could bring back Sheev with any number of asspulls if they want.
ANYONE ELSE PISSED THAT THEY DIDN'T GIVE THE LIGHTSABERS THE ICONIC HUMMING NOISE?!?!
