Forty years after its debut, Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber has officially changed hands.

In a new episode of “The Star Wars Show,” Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Pablo Hidalgo said that the marketing department of Lucasfilm views Anakin’s old lightsaber as Rey’s now, according to Screen Rant.

“Either way, the blade is no longer considered Anakin’s lightsaber by the Lucasfilm marketing department. It has now been officially dubbed ‘Rey’s,’” he said in the interview, which you can watch below.

The lightsaber first appeared in the original “Star Wars” film in 1977, when wise Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi handed it over to Luke Skywalker.

Skywalker lost the lightsaber in “The Empire Strikes Back” when he got his hand chopped off.
