Alright, after spending WAY too much time looking at photographs and paused videos, I am compelled to ask...
Is that lightsaber at the 2:31 mark Rey's own unique lightsaber, or
is it Anakin's?
Anakin's never had a gap just below the tip that allowed the glow of the blue blade to show through
, did it?
I can't ever recall seeing in the Prequel or Original grilogies where that "gap" permitted the blue glow of the blade to show through
. It's that GLOWING gap that makes me think that Rey built her own saber closely modeled after the one Anakin built.
That said, when Finn uses it in battle against Kylo Ren, he holds it on an angle where the gap is glowing. So - we've seen it glowing if The Force Awakens, but did we ever see that gap glowing in any of the previous
I'd greatly appreciate a definitive answer should anyone have one (if there are any screenshots/publicity photos from the Prequel/Original trilogies showing the gap glowing, I'd love to have links to them).
