I used to think a lightsaber blade is shaped like a cylinder of uniform diameter, much like the film props representing them.
However, once in a while I come across a scene from the Original Trilogy where a close up of the blade shows it being thin and narrowing down even more towards the tip quite sharply. I just saw it in the Bespin fight, and I'm pretty sure it was also the case in the fight between Vader and Obi Wan in ANH. It is actually quite like the shape of the blades in Rebels. I had dismissed Rebels lightsaber shape to be a matter of art style, but I just connected the dots and realised the similarity is quite uncanny.
What is the real shape of lightsaber blades?
