Giant red lightsaber flies by Sydney Opera House, thrilling ‘Star Wars’ fans
The force was strong with Sydney on Tuesday.
In a one-off moment that’d make a porg… roar?, a giant red lightsaber flew past the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday night, to promote the Dec. 14 release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Disney representatives told Punkee that the stunt prop was a replica of Kylo Ren’s crossguard lightsaber, made up of 10,800 LEDs.
Locals and journalists with high midichlorian counts knew what was up, taking photos and videos of the levitating lightsaber — many in costume at a Star Wars fan event on Sydney Harbour.
It’s been a week of galactic hype for The Last Jedi, with the trailer dropping, debate over porg edibility arising, and director Rian Johnson being incredibly cryptic over who the Last Jedi actually is.
