Luke Skywalker’s blue-colored lightsaber has touched many important hands. Created during the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber was with him during his greatest moments as a Jedi, and also with him as he fell prey to the dark side. After Obi Wan Kenobi nearly killed Anakin, he took his friend’s lightsaber and held it for twenty years, until he gave it to Luke (spoiler alert), Anakin’s son.
But Luke lost the lightsaber when his hand was chopped off by Darth Vader on Cloud City during The Empire Strikes Back. How did it come into the hands of Maz Kanata? And more importantly, why is it calling out to Rey? GamesRadar delved into the clues that Rey’s vision in Star Wars: The Force Awakens for answers.
