David Tennant To Guest Star On Star Wars: The Clone Wars This Saturday

David Tennant will be guest starring on this Saturday's (10th November) episode of Star Wars The Clone Wars on the Cartoon Network in the USA.
The episode is entitled A Test Of Strength and it continues the story that began last week, focusing on a group of young Jedi  whoset out to build their first lightsabers. David will lend his voice  to character of Huyang, a droid who is a crucial part of this journey.

David was asked to be a part of The Clone Wars by it's supervising director, Dave Filoni  who is a fan of David's portrayal of the Tenth Doctor.
Speaking to IGN Filoni said, “My wife was the one who got me watching Doctor Who and I am really glad she did. I remember thinking that the series (Doctor Who) had many of the same production challenges that we do on The Clone Wars - creating galactic scale adventures and planets with strange life forms.  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."
