I know there’s been an influx of Star Wars: The Force Awakens info coming out; that being said, we’re getting a little more piece by piece from Empire Magazine, which will feature Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ new “good guys” and “villains” this Thursday, August 27th.

Kylo Ren’s lightsaber has the cross bar coming out the sides. I’m sure there is a reason for it being designed that way, but until we see the movie, all we can do is speculate!
