Stephen Colbert defends Star Wars: The Force Awakens ‘crossguard’ lightsaber

star wars colbert 2

The Internet went crazy when it first saw the “crossguard” lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. They naysayers said that the design was bad and that it was impractical in a duel. Well, Stephen Colbert isn’t one of those naysayers. In fact, he thinks it’s the perfect design, and he did an analysis to silence the  scruffy-looking nerfherders ranting on the design.

Last night’s Colbert Report had the host go extra nerdy to defend the crossguard lightsaber.
