How about that!
In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, David voiced Huyang, a droid who plays a crucial part in the journey of a group of young Jedi’s who are about to build their very own lightsabers.
Huyang is described as an ancient droid in the service of the Jedi Order, whose sole task in life has been overseeing the construction of lightsabers.
Dave Filoni, the supervising director of The Clone Wars, became a Doctor Who fan after his wife encouraged him to watch and approached David to ask if he would be interested in playing a role in the show.
“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.” he said, adding, “ 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.”
So a hearty congratulations to David!
