David Tennant Guest Stars in Clone WarsDoctor Who‘s David Tennant is a huge fan of Star Wars and now he gets to live out his Star Wars fantasies with a guest starring role on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Tennant will be making his Star Wars debut with the November 10, 2012 episode of Clone Wars titled “A Test of Strength.” His character will also appear in the next two episodes: “Bound for Rescue” and “A Necessary Strength.”
 
Per the Cartoon Network, Tennant will be providing the voice of a droid named Huyang “who greatly impacts the journey of a group of young Jedi, who were just setting out to build their first lightsabers in last week’s episode.”
 
“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,” stated 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.”
