The Birth of the Lightsaber

StarWars.com has released a fantastic bonus feature from one of the 1997 DVD releases on their YouTube page. This 15-minute featurette produced by Gary Leva focuses on the creation and concept behind the iconic lightsaber and is well worth a look. The only thing it leaves out is why the laser emitter only extends to four or five feet and stops mysteriously... and don't tell us "it's the Force."
