It was previously revealed why Sith lightsabers are red. It’s because the Kyber crystals inside of them are alive and they bleed. But how does a Sith go about constructing their lightsaber? That is a myth that is finally revealed and made part of the official Star Wars canon in a new Star Wars comic book. And it’s just as ominous and evil as any fan can imagine. Basically, the Sith torture the living crystal, filling them with immense pain. As any Star Wars fan worth their weight in action figures can attest, a Sith’s lightsaber is always red. And that color comes from the Kyber crystal inside. While George Lucas didn’t have any substantial backstory for this when he made A New Hope back in 1977, Disney is fully fleshing out this universe, and giving every minuscule thing a reason for existing. Where Lucas just thought it was cool for bad guys to have red lightsabers and good guys to have blue, it turns out there is a more substantial reason than just the aesthetics of visual filmmaking as an art form. And the reason feeds into the story. RELATED: Snowy Lightsaber Battle Has Two Colorado Star Wars Fans… Read full this story
