The Inquisitor Lightsaber from Star Wars: Rebels
I'm not sure if you'll count this as hinged, but it can certainly move the angle of the blade. In fact, it's a hand-held General Grievous, being capable of spinning in circles.
The hilt stays in position while the blade itself spins around the edge of the circle, which suggests the emitter is not directly ...
It's only Legends material, but Dark Force Rising has Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker sneak onto the Chimaera to break Talon Karrde out of Imperial interrogation. The narrative notes in several places the "turbolift clusters" adjacent to bays and other parts of the ship, and then when Mara and Luke are travelling from the shuttle bay to the detention ...
There is the lightwhip... whose name says it all ha. It was introduced as Canon in September 2019 (Gadgets and Gear). Image is taken from a Legends comic.
Their internal workings permit the plasma blades' containment field to
be pliable, thus allowing for dozens of small emitters to create thin
and flexible blades that could reach several meters in ...
Super Star Destroyers in Legends have at least one unbroken corridor running their length equipped with a tram system, though it's for freight rather than dedicated passenger use.
The Beltway was a central corridor running the length of the Super Star Destroyer [Lusankya], from stern to prow. It was not a corridor for pedestrian traffic; the octagonal shaft ...
I don't believe there's a solid answer in current canon, unfortunately, but there are some facts that might be relevant to your hypothetical scenario.
When Rey and Kylo Ren are fighting the Praetorian Guard in The Last Jedi, the Guards' red armour can resist most blows but a direct thrust will go straight through them. See around 1:37 in this clip, for ...
Based on the map seen in Star Wars: Complete Locations, the distance (as the crow flies) is 84.6 miles (136.1 km).
Luke's Landspeeder has a top speed of 155 mph, which means that the journey would take less than an hour, even accounting for the need to take a less-than-direct route around the Mesra Plateau.
Interestingly, an earlier reference map from the ...
Because George Lucas was inspired by Kendo (and karate movies)
Meta Answer: And Kendo has forms - there are 10 called Katas.
In-universe: There is only a teacher and pupil Sith. It's unlikely a Jedi would face a Sith opponent. Which meant Jedis in prequel time very rarely fought other Jedi/Sith to the death.
There were schools filled with Jedi, each of ...
In The Mandalorian Moff Gideon also uses an Imperial Light Cruiser.
There are, though not much in the live action films. Most of these are seen in Star Wars: Rebels. Since it takes place well after the Empire has been established.
Imperial Light Cruiser (as seen in Star Wars: Rebels)

The average citizen knows nearly nothing about the Force.
The Force and especially the organizations connected to it were few and relatively small. As discussed in this other question at the time of the Purge there were around 10 000 Jedi, which is a nearly irrelevant number compared to a Galaxy full of planets. The number of the Sith in the same era can be ...
Per the Death Star Technical Companion.
Turbolift Cluster Station
One couldn’t walk more than a few bundled meters without bumping into
some kind of turbolift conveyance, but even more impressive were the
scores upon scores of turbolift cluster stations found all over the
battle station. The turbolift conveyance system made use of the most
common form of ...
Not a whole lot. We know:
That it's a fundamentalist interpretation of an ancient creed (the Way of the Mandalore) that isn't widely practiced by mainstream Mandalorian culture anymore.
A central tenet is the wearing of the helmet and not removing it in front of anyone. Having removed it, you're not supposed to put it back on anymore as you're no longer a ...
Sheev Palpatine's early life is slightly explored in the novel Darth Plageuis. We don't get an awful lot of camera time with him, but we can ascertain that he has a number of key drivers.
He has an overweening sense of individual superiority to those around him.
“Some of us are required to do what others cannot,” Plagueis added in a conspiratorial way.
We see some beskar being forged in The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 1 (and then again Episode 4). In short, it's placed on a black metal or ceramic plate that is sitting over a series of blue-flamed burners. The forger presses a button which causes the metal to melt into a liquid which is then poured into a mold. The forger presses another button which ...
In Return of the Jedi, Luke tells Leia to
Jam their comlink. Center switch!
Return of the Jedi script
while Luke and Leia are chasing scout troopers on speeder bikes in order to prevent the scout troopers from sending a radio message that rebels are on the forest moon of Endor. This is a form of radio jamming.
According to the Wookieepedia page about humans in Star Wars:
Humans were one of the most successful colonial species, having migrated and adapted to dominate a variety of worlds. [...] By the time of the Galactic Civil War, humans were the most populous of the galaxy's intelligent species, and could be encountered nearly anywhere communities of people ...
Since two lightsabers can parry each other and you can apply strength on it without breaking the hilt, you can do that as well. You just have to see the screen rotated by 90°.
Anyway, according to Legends:
Once focused by the crystals, the plasma was sent through a series of field energizers and modulation circuitry within the emitter ...
All Jedi are pilots, but not all Jedi are ace starfighter pilots.
While the Jedi Order typically uses Republic cruisers for diplomatic missions across the galaxy, some assignments require smaller and less conspicuous transports. And because Jedi can't always rely on pilots to reach their destination, Jedi training includes how to fly ...
In Legends, the Republic maintains the Judicial Forces, which was in theory a civilian law enforcement agency, but it still had a substantial fleet. The famous Katana fleet was a Judicial Forces project, and many officers who would go on to serve the Imperial Navy, such as Gilad Pellaeon, served initially in the Judicial Forces.
Although the Judicial Forces ...
I can't find a 100% definitive source, but according to Darth Bane's Wookieepedia entry, the character's first appearance was a short story titled "Bane of the Sith" by Kevin J. Anderson, which was published in Star Wars Gamer #3. The "cover" published with the story was this full-page image (illustration by Stan Shaw):
I did a quick ...
The Force is meant to be "democratical", is not a matter of birthright.
We have indeed examples of "nobody" who became extremely powerful in the Force, even if their family have little to spare with the Force. I'll take two big examples, one for canon and one for legend.
The Emperor himself was born to a very influential ...
Canonically, we see at least one child bred directly from a clone trooper.
Maize’s eyes widened. “You fought in the clone wars?”
Sconto let out another belly laugh. “Not quite. My father was a clone.”
It was Karr’s turn to be amazed. “Seriously?”
“If my mother can be believed, and I have no reason to doubt her.”
“But I thought clones didn’t live ...

"The Way" is referring to the Mandalorian Creed which, according to the traditions of Mandalore, all Mandalorians must swear when they are a certain (undetermined) age, as a right of passage. We know that clans are an important part of the Way of the Mandalore, and that young Mandalorians forge their armor with their family, supposedly after they ...
I'll answer with some new Disney Canon from Solo:
Han won the Millenium Falcon from Lando by stopping him from cheating at the end of the movie Solo. The way he did it was with the same kind of weird hug greeting that Lando does to him in ESB.
Here's the relevant info from the script (emphasis mine):
Lando: (ALL EXCLAIMING) Ooh. (CHUCKLES)
You really ...
We know about only a handful of Hands:
Mara Jade, later became a Jedi Master, married Luke & had a son with him, Ben Skywalker
Shira Brie, later the Dark Lady of the Sith, she also secretly served as Vader's Shadow Hand & she eventualy became the Sith Master to Jacen Solo (Darth Caedus), killed by Luke Skywalker in a duel
Arden Lyn, a 25 000 year ...
Based on the depictions I'm familiar with, the various Jedi temples were not inhabited during the Clone Wars.
For example, consider the temple on Lothal. The character's dialogue imply that the Jedi active during the Clone Wars were largely unaware of it; without the records maintained in the Jedi library, it could have been forgotten about completely. This ...
