Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening up this month on May 31st, 2019 at the Disneyland Resort with so much anticipation as this will be Disney’s biggest and highly immersive addition towards the resort and later this summer at Walt Disney World Resort.
If your someone who believes in the force and traveling towards the Black Spire Outpost and will be making your way towards Savi’s Workshop. Savi’s shop is a hidden workshop and arrange an appointment with Gatherers.
The Gatherers are a group of men and women who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of the Force and the ancient ways of the Jedi. The Gatherers guide those who seek their assistance in creating their own unique customized lightsaber.

These group of men and woman have amassed a collection of stories, kyber crystals, and other saber parts from the galaxy.
Here’s more in depth story details about The Gatherers:
“As “keepers of the Force,” they have passed down their knowledge from generation to generation, striving to keep the flame of hope alive. Savi was one of the original Gatherers and a friend to Lor San Tekka (whom we met briefly at the beginning of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”). Like Lor, Savi was a believer in the ideals of the Jedi Order and helped to pass on his knowledge of Jedi lore. He created a salvage business as a front to hide his clandestine mission of guiding the next generation of Force wielders and helping them create their unique lightsabers.”
Visitors are known as “the Builders” as they come in and customize their own lightsaber the way they want too. The center of the room is the Builder’s Table, a oval-shaped table assembled from ancient pieces all across the galaxy. They can hold up towards 14 builders at a time to choose their crystal and craft their lightsaber.

Here are the four themes of lightsabers for visitors to build:
- Power and Control: Reclaimed from the ashes of the rumored Sith homeworld and abandoned Sith temples, these lightsaber pieces were originally forged by the Sith of their time. Characterized by sharp and strong forms, these pieces showcase the brutality and relentlessness of the Sith’s insatiable desire for power and control.
- Elemental Nature: As we have been told, The Force is an energy field created by all living things; it surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy together. These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature: the wood from a Brylark tree, a bone of the Cartusion whale or even a tooth from a Rancor.
- Protection and Defense: Cultivated from a time forgotten, these earliest lightsaber pieces contain designs and inscriptions that are shrouded in mystery. Believed to be created for protection and defense, conferring anonymity and symbolizing emotional detachment, a lightsaber made from these pieces reconnects the user with the most ancient wellspring of the Force.
- Peace and Justice: Salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships, these lightsaber pieces were created for Force wielders of the Republic era. The simple designs reflect the commitment to the devout life of those whom they were created by – the Jedi Order – the once guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
