A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, bad guys and good guys did most glorious battle with these weapons called lightsabers. And since that started, every child and grown adult child has wanted one of their own.
Now, if you've only ever watched the main Star Wars films, you might think there are only a few different colored lightsabers. Well, you would be very, very wrong, friend! So wrong!
But that's okay. It's my job as an entertainment website writer to simultaneously show you you don't know everything, and then to help get you to a place where you think you know everything and can then brag about it to your friends.
While I do not personally know the reason for the seven different lightsaber colors, YouTube star SuperCarlinBrothers sure as hell does. And he's more than happy to share all of his nerdy intelligence with the rest of us.
I was extremely surprised by all of the lightsaber info that SuperCarlinBrothers has stored up there in his noggin. He knows everything from storyline explanations to behind-the-scenes film facts for the different lightsaber colors.
For example, did you know that the original plan for Star Wars lightsabers was to have them all be white? And that this effect would be created on the set by rigging the sabers with quickly spinning mirrors that would produce a "glow" in the camera lens? I didn't know that!
There's a lot of tasty, educational nerd info in this video, friends. I suggest you give it a watch below, and then share it with your nerdy, uninformed friends.
