Since the time Rey broke her blue Skywalker lightsaber, the fans have wondered how she will get it back in Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. The unfortunate incident happened in a fight with Kylo Ren during Star Wars: The Last Jedi. How will Rey get a new laser sword in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.

Rey actress Daisy Ridley was asked about it during Star Wars: Episode IX panel by host Stephen Colbert at Star Wars Celebration held in Chicago. Is there any way that the broken lightsaber can be fixed or will she have to build another one?
Daise Ridley cleverly said,
The lightsaber that Rey inherited from Luke lives.

In the trailer, Rey was wielding a lightsaber that looked exactly same as the previous one. Earlier leaks revealed that it is still blue and has a different design. This may indicate that there are some repairs made.

The plastic black strips at the bottom are exact same like it. The activation button is at the exact same position with a metal piece jutting out for extra protection above it.
