This December 15th tune to ESPN for a special treat. Mark Hamill will be hosting a special on how the lightsaber fights were developed for all the Star Wars movies, how they have changed during the years and where they get their inspiration from.
J. J. Abrams has said before that the lightsaber duels in this new Episode of the Star Wars saga are going to be less elegant. Still we have seen Finn managing the Jedi weapon with some expertise that can only come after some training.
One of the few good things the prequels had was the lightsaber duels. In the original trilogy, the lightsaber fights were simple and short. The prequels differentiated from them by having well coreographed, long, intricated lightsaber duels, and we all enjoyed them. It will be interesting to see what J. J. Abrams has done to differentiate these duels from the previous ones.
Watch the featurette below and don't forget to watch the whole special on the 18th.
