Anakin/Luke's Lightsaber Is Now Rey's

In a new article as part of their ongoing Star Wars coverage, Vanity Fair has confirmed that the blue lightsaber is now officially Rey's. The saber in question was originally built by Anakin in Attack of the Clones before being taken by Obi-Wan and given to Luke. The Lucasfilm marketing department now officially considers it Rey's lightsaber, while Luke's is the green one from Return of the Jedi (though it has yet to appear in current marketing). Pablo Hidalgo told Vanity Fair,
In general a lightsaber belongs to the person who constructed it. In The Force Awakens, Maz says that the saber is calling to Rey now. Whether or not it’s literally calling to her to become hers or it’s calling to her because she knows it will be taken back to Luke—we’ll see.
