Every Single Lightsaber Ignition and Retraction in Every Star Wars Movie

No matter how many times we watch this video—showing every single lightsaber ignition and retraction in the Star Wars movies—we can't make the bloody Spyder III laser to ignite like that.


The author of this video spent six hours picking every on-screen lightsaber ignition and retraction in movie chronological order. He said he only used clips "where you can see the lightsaber ignite/retract and not just hear it" intentionally.



Ok this is getting irritating. Those of you complaining that Ep I-III had too many lightsabers, please think about it. Eps I-III were about the JEDI. There were a lot of Jedi. The lightsaber is their traditional weapon. What did you expect them to bust out? Sling shots?

A lot of things sucked about those movies, but too many lightsabers was not one of them. It was necessary for the storyline.
