    I was thinking last night, that maybe.. just maybe Luke's lightsaber is hidden inside his walking stick ?? The only problem is that the walking stick might be to thin to be able to contain the lightsaber hilt inside of it ..

    Well, it certainly could be. His hand could lay over where the dragon head (?) hilt meats the sheath. But looking closer there appears to be a leather wrapping for the handle that would extend over the intersection of the hilt and sheath.

    Maybe his lightsaber is hidden under that soap box! Are soap boxes canon now? Is soap canon?! OMG!11!!!11! ;)

    But who knows. Maybe his lightsaber is in that stick. Who am I to say? Haha. (shrug)

    Why would he need to hide his lightsaber? He just keeps it in a box in his hut. He's on an island with Porgs. It's not like he needs it day to day. I'm more curious about the rumored red kyber crystal shard that hangs around his neck ticked into a little wood covering.

    has he checked behind the cushions on the sofa? that's where my keys always are.

    Luke lighting his light saber is the big money shot.

    I suspect it will be the crescendo to the main trailer in a month or so. but... if we don't see it in the trailer i will begin to get worried.
    #petrified in fact
    if he uses the green saber in the film it would be silly not to put a glimpse of it in the trailer... so if we don't see it there are 3 possibilities, he doesn't have it, he doesn't use it, or it aint green no more.

    and yes, i hate myself for suggesting that last possibility :(

    Hide it...why? And from whom? The man has been living alone (and on a remote planet) for years.

    Sorry, but there's NO WAY they're gonna put it in the trailer. :) They absolutely shouldn't and I think they know it. This is the kind of reveal that should be left for the movie. It's probably the number 1 thing I want to see in TLJ and I'm cool with waiting till December. It's like the Vader scene from Rogue One. It would suck if the trailer teased it.

    I still think there's a chance there will be no lightsaber at all, but let's hope for the best... If Rian's goal was to get Luke right (which he explicitly stressed), it's hard to imagine him keeping the green lightsaber out of the equation. This is the good kind of fan service that should be delivered.

    I hope they do show that money shot in the film but not the trailer. I want to first see that visual in all its humongous screen glory. I have waited near a third of a century to see this and I dont want it to be on a trailer.

    anyone with a glass half full would agree with you. a reveal like that would be awesome to see in the theater for the first time.

    i'm a pessimist when it comes to marketing and advertising... they will show whatever they need to for sales.
    I honestly hate that i think that of people.

    Nah, it's not that bad. ;) The good thing about Star Wars is that it sells itself, so they don't have to rely on showing all the good stuff in trailers (or dropping many trailers in general). Going back to RO's Vader - they didn't tease that scene at all. They would if they were DCEU... Remember BvS trailers? They gave away everything.

    Overall Star Wars marketing is great when it comes to keeping stuff under wraps. They lose their minds in the TV spots phase, though...

    Yeah he doesn't need to carry it around all the time. Unless he likes to slaughter porgs, like he did womp rats, back home.

    It's a stick.

    He doesn't need a lightsabre. He doesn't want a lightsabre. He's gone to a place where he doesn't need to fight anymore (physically and psychologically).

    Rey's just appeared and messed that all up.

    Interesting concept. I don't think it would fit in the stick but Maybe he has constructed a new saber using his Kyber Crystal that is part of the stick and the end detaches.

    With Luke's current state of mind, I doubt he's hiding his saber in his walking stick, but I also doubt it's gone for good.

    I think that this is the simplest answer: He hid it in his robes just like Palpatine.

    Also what if it is accidentally ignited, it would destroy his stick
    --- Double Post Merged, Aug 10, 2017 ---
    or he keeps his lightsaber in his sunken x-wing

    Wonder if they work underwater? ...Know they did in the EU and think the CW cartoon... Maybe with Rey diving into the water we may find out on film.

    It's a plasma blade and laser and plasma work underwater, I believe there are deleted scenes in the prequels where a lightsaber is used but i dont remember where

    Someone asked the SW guys on Twitter and they said Lightsabers work underwater.
