Are you a fan of David Tennant, the infamous 10th Doctor?
What about the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”?
Well, Tennant joins an episode of the show THIS SATURDAY at 9:30am ET on Cartoon Network! He plays a droid called Huyang, who has helped the Jedi build their lightsabers for centuries.
The show’s supervising director, Dave Filoni, is a big “Doctor Who” fan, but he wouldn’t give a role to just anyone:
“As a fan that has the privilege of playing in the Star Wars galaxy, I am always on the lookout for others who appreciate, and would enjoy, an opportunity to go on an adventure in George’s galaxy far, far away. When I heard the Doctor himself, David Tennant, was a fan of Star Wars I knew I had to find a way to get in contact with him to see if he would perform on The Clone Wars. The result was ‘Huyang,’ an ancient droid in the service of the Jedi Order, whose sole task in life has been overseeing the construction of lightsabers. I thought David was perfect for the part and he did not disappoint. He delivered a performance which impressed even the Master himself, George Lucas.”
