  Anakin: 'Lightsabres are the coolest!'
Updated 08 May 2002, 20.49
Star Wars II: Attacks of the Clones
Hayden Christensen - Anakin Skywalker in the new Star Wars movie - says having his own lightsabre was the "coolest thing in the world!"

The young actor told Newsround's Lizo Mzimba how he learnt to fight with the famous Jedi weapon.

He said it was really hard work and very like learning dance steps.

Hayden went to Australia for a month to train specially with the lightsabre.

He said: "It was just every kid's dream. I can't wait to go back and train for Episode 3."

The lightsabre gave Hayden a "good workout" because it's so heavy and he had to learn how to swing it just right.

All in all he reckoned it was "absolutely thrilling!"

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones opens in the UK on 16 May.
