Over the weekend an image from the E3 build of Star Wars Battlefront II sent the internet into wild speculation mode. A picture of Rey from the hero load out screen showed her using Luke Skywalker’s Return of the Jedi lightsaber instead of her normal one, which is the old Anakin saber.
Of course that meant the internet created wild head canon, creating elaborate plot theories about how Rey got Luke’s green saber. Unfortunately all of that is now officially shot down.
Battlefront II hero designer Guillaume Mroz confirmed on Twitter the lightsaber icon is just a bug:
So there you have it, the icon used for the lightsaber is just a bug and Rey won’t be using Luke’s ROTJ saber in The Last Jedi.
