Wait, Why the Heck Was Rey's Lightsaber Yellow at the End of 'Rise of Skywalker'?

By

Warning: The following contains some major spoilers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, so read at your own risk.

One of my favorite parts of watching Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones was seeing Mace Windu in that massive Jedi vs. Clones battle at the end of the film. His purple lightsaber stood out above the rest, and it was the first thing I thought of when I saw Rey's yellow weapon at the end of the latest film. The second thought I had was, "where did she get it?"

What does the gold lightsaber mean?

The thing about the Star Wars movies is that a lot of the series' mythology exists outside of the film. We're getting into dangerously nerdtacular territory right now, but please indulge me. There are several Star Wars comics and even videogames that touch on not only the history of lightsabers but what their different colors, structures, and compositions represent.
