New Star Wars: The Clone Wars Delves into Lightsaber Construction

New Star Wars: The Clone Wars Delves into Lightsaber Construction

One of the most popular components of the Star Wars mythos amongst fans is the lightsaber and all the nifty stuff Jedis and Siths do with it. From deflecting lasers to parrying each other’s sabers and even blocking force lightnings, it’s not that farfetched to think that the franchise wouldn’t have become as popular as it is without the futuristic swords with blades made out of light. In the upcoming episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, titled “The Gathering”, we’ll get a look at another aspect of lightsabers: lightsaber construction.

But what if he wasn’t dead? What if Darth Maul somehow survived? This is the premise being explored later this season on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars – and frankly, we can’t wait to find out what happens!
