Obi-Wan Kenobi knows his lightsaber isn’t as clumsy or random as a blaster.

Lightsabers are cinematic icons, having appeared in every Star Wars movie since 1977’s A New Hope
, when Luke Skywalker first fired up the blue blade entrusted to him by Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. That blue color wasn’t arbitrary. There’s a reason behind all those hues, from the red blades wielded by Darth Vader and Kylo Ren to the unique black blade you may have seen in The Mandalorian. So let’s take a look at what the characters’ color choices say about them.
