The 10th Doctor, David Tennant, to Guest on Star Wars: The Clone Wars

On the next episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, titled “A Test of Strength”, former Doctor Who lead David Tennant will be making his Star Wars debut as the voice of the droid named Huyang. The episode will air this Saturday, November 10 at 9:30 am ET/PT on the Cartoon Network.

In “A Test of Strength,” the new character Huyang is introduced as a droid who has had a huge impact on the journey of a group of young Jedi who were in the process of building their first lightsabers.

The former timelord will continue to lend his voice for the following two episodes, “Bound for Rescue” and “A Necessary Strength.”

“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 Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” said Dave Filoni, Supervising Director, Star Wars: 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.”
