Disney Doesn't Understand Lightsabers

  • Published on Dec 25, 2018
  • Star Wars gave us the Lightsaber. Disney threw it away. Why doesn’t Disney understand Star Wars and especially the lightsaber? We all wanted one as a kid, now, not so much. I’ll also show you which movie Rian Johnson copied for the Throne Room scene. It will surprise you. What has Kathleen Kennedy done to Star Wars?

    Luke called it a laser sword because he was dumbing down the lightsaber to show how stupid Rey's idea was.

    When Disney acquired Lucas arts I knew that it was over. No more star wars. Thankfully it died, just wish it died with a bit more respect than Disney gave it.

    I've watched The Last Jedi once, I have no compulsion to watch it ever again, Rogue One however..... I own it on Bluray & have enjoyed watching it several times.
    Kathleen Kennedy should just fall on her lazer sword & take one for the team, she has completely ruined Star wars.

    I think the only reason this new star wars trilogy is considered decent by some people. Is because of Poe. He's carrying the series in my opinion. If he wasn't there, I think everyone would hate it.

    At 4:30 I'm not sure if he's complaining about how the baton just comes out of nowhere, or if he's complaining about the fact that a non-lightsaber weapon can deflect lightsabers.

    If it's one then it's dumb because this is a military that is supposed to be prepared for anything. On top of that not preparing for anything was the fall of the jedi order so it makes even more sense to not follow in their footsteps.

    If it's two that it's still dumb because we have had non-lightsaber lightsaber deflecting weapons for a long time. They were in the prequels, they were in the games, the comics, a lot of media canon and legends.

    So, either way he's wrong.

    Just for the record, in Spain we call the light saber "espada láser" or "sable láser" which translates to laser sword or laser saber.

    The only good thing Disney is done with lightsabers is putting more emphasis on them being a light source in a shot. Other than that, or just functionally speaking, it's all mucked.

    Laser sword was the original name George wrote for the light saber. It wasn't changed until a later draft of the original SW script.
    You can talk about how stupid people are for saying laser sword but when I hear someone say it I just assume they're a hardcore fan that knows the origin.

    if you watch the Kylo Ren/Rey throne room fight scene carefully you see that both Daisy and Adam missed a lot of fight scene ques which leave the guards hitting nothing but air, seriously Hayden, Euan and the others from 1-3 spent weeks and months constantly doing their fights to get them right.

  • Dylan Hall

    I get the whole video but you can leave cuts and scratches with a lightsaber, i mean if your not forcing it through then thats whats gonna happen like slicing someone with a knife, if your not got force it all the way through then its not gonna go through

  • Yalokin
    Yalokin Day ago

    I agree with everything, but i think the scene where Kylo slices Finn, it is supposed to be "just the tip" ;P If you want totally realistic lightsabers, the people and everything around it would melt from the radiating heat. I dont think that would be so cool in a movie...

    • N F
      N F 14 hours ago

      @Yalokin yeah, in the end we are both speculating. And also (i havent thought about it before) by my logic, i guess they could have the medical knowledge to restore/heal or replace the spinal cord or the nervous endings on the spinal cord or whatever the fuck !
      I do agree with Robot Head that the lightsaber cutting a massive rock and at the same time barely scratching Finn´s back is just dumb and inconsistent.. (fuck Disney).

    • Yalokin
      Yalokin 15 hours ago +1

      @N F suppose that would depend on where the tip hit if as you say the heat is contained to exactly the "tube" but yea, i guess that could happen. And yea, sure they could have some technology to contain the heat, but they have never said anything about it. Both speculations, im just saying from what we know today about plasma and lasers.

    • N F
      N F 19 hours ago

      I disagree man, were talking about a universe where technology is waaay advanced, and you think the heat of the light saber can't be confined to the exact space that occupies? I'm not a scientist but if they can travel in space ships in light speed im pretty sure they can make the heat of the saber stay in the "tube"...
      Finn having his spinal cord melted just with the "tip" must had left him with irreparable nervous damage, maybe paraplegic or quadraplegic !

    Bruh, the Darth Vader scene from Rouge One pisses me off so much. Not because it's not good, but because it's so good.

      They want to go down their own path and shout "Look at us! We made new and interesting Star Wars movies!"
      Of course they're not actually interesting. The only reason their movies are successful is because it's Star Wars and they put some of the old characters in so they can lure in the older audiences. It's pathetic when you think about it.

    The guy who throws his weapon away at 10:11 is actually having knocked out of his hand by the other guy with a staff on the left side of the screen. The collision of the two weapons is off screen (above frame) but that’s what they were trying to do with the choreography. Still a terrible scene but that’s what happened.
