Was this mystery ever solved? How was Luke’s retrieved from Bespin and ended up in Mas Kenada’s possession?

How was Luke’s retrieved from Bespin and ended up in Mas Kenada’s possession?

Apparently in the comics, Star Wars (2020) issue #4, the lightsaber was recovered on Bespin by an Ugnaught after Luke gave up looking for the lightsaber.

Can't wait for the inevitable tie-in flashback where the Ugnaught in the Mandalorian was the one who found the lightsaber and sold it to Maz Kanata to buy his way out of a life of servitude from the Empire. These scripts write themselves!

Someone found it...probably Maz' husband E.T. (thinking it was his phone) who then gave it to his wife, Maz( who was having an affair with Chewy apparently)who then gave it to Finn, who lost it to Rey...who gave it back to Jake Skywalker who threw it over his shoulder and got commandeered by a porg...then Rey broke it...fixed it...threw it away, in which Force Ghost Jake Skywalker caught it (lectured her about respecting it) and gave it back to Rey to then bury it with Leia's...the one we never saw before. ( sorry but had show the absurdity one more time)

You know, in all seriousness, it would have made more sense for Maz to have had Luke’s ROTJ lightsaber hilt in her possession vs. the GRAFLEX.

Perhaps it would have provided a clue to the missing Jedi Master in TFA?

Choosing the GRAFLEX and creating a HUGE plot hole was one of many story missteps Disney created, right out of the gate, with the objectively awful Sequel Trilogy.

I wouldn't call Maz having Luke's old lightsaber a plot hole. It's an inconsistency to be certain but not a plot hole since it really doesn't affect the plot. Luke's lightsaber was just macguffin/plot device and it was there simply to move the plot along but it wouldn't have made any difference which version of his lightsaber it was.

Ya know, I was always expecting an ROTJ callback that would have one of the heroes defenceless & unarmed, when suddenly R2 would launch out Luke's V2, but alas, twas not meant to be.
