In the early films, its distinct appearance was created using rotoscoping, or a crafty technique that animators use to trace over motion picture footage, frame by frame, to produce realistic action.

This was the formal weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. More skill than simple sight was required for its use. An elegant weapon. It was a symbol as well. Anyone can use a blaster or a fusioncutter—but to use a lightsaber well was a mark of someone a cut above the ordinary,” said Obi-Wan Kenobi.
