Well, it looks Hacksmith’s 4000 degrees plasma lightsaber ain’t the closest mankind will ever get to a real lightsaber because, Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development has created a real-life lightsaber that extends like we have seen it in the movies.

Absolutely mind blown. Here’s the clip of it in action:

On Star Wars Day, May the 4th, Disney Parks posted a 13-second clip of a supposed real-life, working lightsaber. An actress dressed in the likeness of Rey fires up a lightsaber which is apparently not the world of CGI.

The lightsaber is part the “all-immersive”, two-night vacation experience at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Resort slated to throw its door open in 2022.

“Watching that lightsaber activate right before your eyes will be just one of the countless ways that, from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, you’ll be plunged into a Star Wars story where your decisions and actions – or even the casual conversations you may have – determine how your personal journey unfolds.”

So, this kind of answered our question of what exactly the Halcyon starcruiser is. It is a short hotel stay in the galaxy far, far away here on Earth. You can learn more about this new upcoming experience in the official Disney Parks’ blog post HERE.
