If you don’t know, well the answer is STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. You choose between the lis aght side of the force to the dark side of the force. This movie starts 30 years after the last Star Wars movie, The Return of the Jedi.
A lightsaber( the Star Wars “swords”) is a fictional energy weapon featured in the Star Wars universe. It consists of a polished metal hilt which projects a brightly-lit energy blade generally about 4 feet (1.22 meters) long, though some lightsabers are of a different length. The lightsaber is the signature weapon of the Jedi order and their Sith counterparts, both of whom can use them for close combat, or to deflect blaster bolts. Its distinct appearance was created using rotoscoping for the original films, and digitally for the prequel trilogy. The lightsaber first appeared in the original 1977 Star Wars film and every Star Wars movie has featured at least one lightsaber duel. In 2008, a survey of approximately 2,000 film fans found it to be the most popular weapon in film history
But now in the new movie, there is a new type of lightsaber. In the first few movies, they use a lightsabers with either one blade on one side, or two blades
