A Jedi knight's Weapon… but also a Sith’s Weapon
Lightsabers are the quintessential weapons of a Jedi Knight but also that of a Sith Lord.
They were first created by the warriors themselves, it is a weapon that ignites the Energy Blade from its Hilt and has various colours, depending on the minerals used in its manufacture.
In addition, the Star Wars universe goes beyond the film industry as we also know about it from cartoon series like The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. From these series, we can learn that other coloured lightsabers actually exist. There are yellow lightsabers(used by the Sentinel class Jedi) as well as black and white.
Blue is the color used by the Jedi Luke Skywalker in the film A New Hope as well as by Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. Blue Lightsabers are generally associated with those Jedi who have the role of Guardians and are prepared for combat.
Red is the colour used by the Siths. The red comes from the use of certain synthetic crystals during its manufacture. From Darth Vader to Emperor palpatine through Darth Maul, Count Dooku and Kylo Ren- the most important and noteworthy lords of the dark side, and they are the ones who wield the red lightsabers
The purple lightsabers are the rarest and only a very powerful Jedi knight can use them. This is the case of Mace Windu in the episodes of the prequel trilogy (I, II and III). We can see this sword in action in the scene of the Jedi in the arena in the movie The Attack of the Clones and in Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, when Mace Windu tries to capture Senator Palpatine.
The Green Lightsabers are used by Highly ranked Jedis as it’s related to the intellectual abilities of the Force. The first sighting of a green lightsaber was in the Return of The Jedi- it was Luke Skywalker’s weapon in this episode. They were also used later on by Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn.
Some Special Features of the Lightsaber
Throughout all the episodes of Star Wars, we got to see the special features of the lightsabers. In addition to the colour detail mentioned above, all of the lightsabers are multipurpose weapons when in the hands of both Jedi and Sith Knights
As well as their use in battles, we can see how they can cut things and even fire shots.
Another special feature of the lightsaber is that they emit sound. When they are turned on, turned off, when you move them or when they are in contact with other lightsabers

Looking back At some Epic Lightsaber moments
The first lightsaber duel of the saga was in The Death Star between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi. It wasn’t until years later the old teacher and his apprentice -totally changed- find each other again. Although the outcome this time is different from the previous.
But, perhaps the most important duels from all the Star Wars movies are those that develop between father and son. Luke confronts Vader on two occasions. The first time he is still in the learning stage and was defeated in Bespin. In the Return of the Jedi, a new confrontation takes place that has a very different end that determines the fate of the galaxy.
The prequel trilogy sees lightsabers back in action. There is a three person battle as the master Jedi Qui- Gon Jinn and the young obi Wan take on a Sith villain Darth Maul.
There’s more… We’re also able to see a huge gathering of Jedis and countless lightsabers in various colours on planet Geonosi. As well as the two clashes between Count Dooku, Anakin and Obi Wan or the duel between Obi Wan and General Grievous holding a lightsaber in each of his four hands.
In the new sequel trilogy, fans of these bright weapons discover Kylo Ren's new lightsaber and witness the fight in which Rey uses Luke Skywalker's lightsaber to defend her friend Finn.
