Yesterday you might recall we reported on Disney unveiling a real-life Tinker Bell and other next-gen robots at SXSW. However, that seemed to be just the tip of the iceberg!
The presentation where those lifelike robotics were introduced was called “Creating Happiness: The Art & Science of Disney Parks Storytelling.” To kick off that presentation, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro decided to introduce the audience to a real-life retractable lightsaber.
While no photos have made their way online just yet, the outlet Disney Food Blog just so happened to be there got a very cool look at it up-close! You can check it out below!
As of now, it’s still unclear if the lightsaber will be available for purchase or if it was made as a proof-of-concept.
We’ll continue to bring you updates on all of Disney’s panels for the remainder of the festival so be sure to follow The DisInsider on all of our social media profiles!
