Star Wars: Kylo Ren’s lightsaber has deep High Republic roots | Films | Entertainment

Lucasfilm’s publishing creative director told the website: “We wanted to make the Jedi distinctive and instantly recognisable as Jedi Knights of the High Republic, and that applies not only to their clothing but to their lightsabers, as well.
