However is something ever actually gone in Star Wars? It’s telling that the Darksaber was merely grievously broken reasonably than utterly destroyed—and even when the galaxy far, far-off has seemingly gone out of its approach to present a legendary weapon like a lightsaber being misplaced, it might probably nonetheless discover its method into the palms of a brand new hero. Whereas it looks as if The Mandalorian and Star Wars at giant are at the moment prepared to maneuver on from the rebuilding of Mandalore as a focal storyline, there are potential seeds in place that might tease the reforging of the Darksaber anew.
Ahsoka, the subsequent Star Wars live-action streaming sequence set to air this August, is essentially going to be set both concurrent with, or maybe probably within the wake of, the occasions of The Mandalorian season three. What little we’ve seen of the present already signifies that it’s going to focus by itself narrative, as Ahsoka gathers allies to arrange for the seeming return of Grand Admiral Thrawn, an intriguing character glimpsed in the first teaser trailer for the sequence provides Star Wars a possible method out to a Darksaber reborn.
That character is none apart from the droid Huyang. Voiced by Physician Who icon David Tennant, Huyang appeared briefly in Clone Wars as an historical servant of the Jedi Order, who spent tens of hundreds of years coaching Jedi younglings within the course of of making their first lightsaber. That he’s survived into the time of the New Republic already makes him one of many oldest Star Wars characters in existence at this level, however most crucially he is without doubt one of the few remaining characters with the information of constructing and repairing a lightsaber, even one as previous and as closely broken because the Darksaber is.
On condition that Ahsoka might be teaming up with the Darksaber’s one-time wielder Sabine Wren within the sequence, and the necessity for all the assistance she will be able to get in opposition to threat of Grand Admiral Thrawn… might Huyang play an important function in returning to the Mandalorians a robust image of resistance thought misplaced? We’ll have to attend and see.
