Picture Trivia
          The lightsaber is an extraordinary weapon used by Jedis and Siths in the Star Wars film series. In the original lightsaber in the first Star Wars (1977) film, a blade of light 1.33 meter in length will extend once it is wielded. It can cut through almost anything and can cut a wound like being scorched by an extremely hot metal. There are no two lightsabers exactly alike, but Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber was similar to the one given to Luke Skywalker.
