The Star Wars movies might include lots of sad or violent scenes, and many stories of oppression or abuse, but Star Wars fans can apparently be just as kind and honorable as the Jedis who have inspired them onscreen as they overcome obstacles!

One big Star Wars fan just spent almost one thousand dollars on lightsabers in Walt Disney World Resort, in a unique demonstration of this same kindness!

An adult Disney fan and TikToker named Kurt (@Kurttocci), who has almost two million followers on TikTok and focuses on positive social media content, just spent hundreds of dollars on lightsabers in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

Kurt shared footage on March 20 (shown below) from his time in the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge portion of the Disney World theme park called Hollywood Studios, when he had purchased dozens of the notoriously-expensive lightsabers that are available for purchase.

Kurt then endeavored to “bring the Force to younglings”, carrying the lightsabers around the Disney Park and giving them away for free.

“Let’s make some kids’ days,” Tocci said in the video with a big smile. Kurt Tocci seemed to have a great time handing out the lightsabers, and many families responded to his generosity with enthusiastic thank-yous (although one Stormtrooper did seem suspicious).

“My daughter got one from you that day!” one mother wrote in a comment on Kurt’s video. “Thank you so much. Made her whole trip.”

Apparently, this generous act cost Kurt $809.20! While some Disney fans did point out just how expensive the lightsabers were (criticizing Disney’s high prices, not Kurt’s generosity), most fans seemed to focus on the Disney magic that came from the adult’s random act of kindness instead.
