Watch David Tennant Guest Star In Star Wars The Clone Wars This Morning

David Tennant makes his first appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network in the USA this morning.

David voices the part of Huyang, an ancient droid with the knowledge of every lightsaber used by every Jedi stored in his data banks. His role is to oversee a group of Jedi younglings as they construct their own lightsabers.

Dave Filoni, the series showrunner, said of David: "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."

The character of Huyang will also appear in the next two episodes Bound For Rescue and A Necessary Bond.

You can watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Test Of Strength on Cartoon Network in the USA at 9.30am/8.30c this morning, with a repeat tomorrow at the same time. The new series is expected to reach the UK sometime in 2013.
