Whether you loved or hated Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we can all agree that the throne room scene was one of the best the franchise has ever produced. The sequence involved Rey and Kylo teaming up to take on the Praetorian Guards after the death of Supreme Leader Snoke. The scene concludes with the destruction of Rey’s lightsaber but what if it hadn’t?
Coming via the official Star Wars Instagram page, concept art has revealed that at some point Rey was intended to be using a green lightsaber during the throne battle. You can check out the image below:
Now unless there was a deleted subplot where Rey built her own lightsaber, the one she is using is more than likely Luke’s. We hadn’t seen his iconic saber since Return of the Jedi until we got a look at it in a flashback during The Last Jedi but we never saw it during the current timeline. That led many to ask, where is the lightsaber?
That question wasn’t answered in the movie so it’s interesting why it would’ve ever been featured in concept art. The only explanation is that at one point during the writing of the film, Luke had the green lightsaber and handed it off to Rey before she left Ahch-To.
