I'm curious as to the origin of Kenner's insistence that yellow lightsabers would play a prominent role in the original film (from box art for Obi-Wan to, most famously, Luke's actual yellow lightsaber accessory in the produced toy). Anybody have any theories? The Rinzler book is silent on the matter.

I know I'm not the only one, but I wish we could actually finally see some yellow lightsabers in action onscreen, but I'm not holding my breath... I think Lucas' blue/green (or purple if you're one particular guy) = good / red = bad idiocy is too firmly entrenched in the popular imagination for Disney to ever find itself inclined to shake things up like that... Shame, really.
