Disney+ Singapore's Super Fun Star Wars Lightsaber Workshop With Fightsaber (23 September 2023)

Last Saturday (23 September 2023), Red Dot Diva and her geek pal Leo Cheong had a chance to be part of Disney+ Singapore's special event for a bunch of subscribers. The streaming company hosted a Star Wars Lightsaber Workshop and it was a blast! 

It was the first time Leo attended a Disney event at their premises, and here is his short write-up about the fan huddle!


Masks haven't been trendy or ubiquitous since the heydays of the Covid pandemic, but I happily donned my Darth Vader mask for this special occasion. Hosting winners of the latest Subscribers Perks Programme competition at their swanky HQ, Disney+ Singapore put on a literal light show that will not be forgotten anytime soon.

No party is complete without epic loot and it doesn’t get more epic than an Ahsoka Tano Legacy Lightsaber Set worth a cool S$529.90 (US$387.95). Reminds me of Shinomori Aoshi’s double kodachis from Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai X.

For those not in the know, the latest live-action Star Wars TV series AHSOKA, is in full swing exclusively on Disney+. Making the force jump from animation, the series continues the adventures of Anakin Skywalker's disciple and includes the return of some fan favorites like *SPOILER* and *SUPER SPOILER*! Brought to life by the stunning Rosario Dawson, Ahsoka navigates through a post-Empire galaxy and expertly slices and dices her way with the aforementioned twin lightsabers when words don’t cut it.

Party attendees were treated to a performance complete with expert lightsaber choreography and cosplay by Fightsaber Singapore and a hands-on demonstration by Jedi Master Mikoda, and his lovely Jedi colleagues.

With the crowd sufficiently warmed up, everyone was raring to snag the grand prize (the ‘smaller’ prizes weren’t too shabby either to be honest). After a few rounds Star Wars trivia questions and some very happy winners, Disney+ made sure nobody left empty handed with goodie bags for everyone!

Kudos to Fightsaber Singapore for an excellent spectacle. Check out their social media if you're keen on starting your Jedi Master journey.

Huge thanks to Disney+ for their generosity and hospitality. If you're not already a Disney+ subscriber, you're missing out on epic experiences and high quality streaming entertainment.


Darth Vader Plushie was at the event too! See what he was up to!
