However is something ever actually gone in Star Wars? It’s telling that the Darksaber was merely grievously broken reasonably than fully destroyed—and even when the galaxy far, far-off has seemingly gone out of its strategy to present a legendary weapon like a lightsaber being misplaced, it will possibly nonetheless discover its means into the palms of a brand new hero. Whereas it looks like The Mandalorian and Star Wars at massive are at present 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 basically going to be set both concurrent with, or maybe seemingly within the wake of, the occasions of The Mandalorian season three. What little we’ve seen of the present already signifies that it’ll focus by itself narrative, as Ahsoka gathers allies to organize for the seeming return of Grand Admiral Thrawn, an intriguing character glimpsed in the first teaser trailer for the sequence offers Star Wars a possible means out to a Darksaber reborn.
That character is none aside 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 1000’s 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 among the few remaining characters with the data of constructing and repairing a lightsaber, even one as previous and as closely broken because the Darksaber is.
On condition that Ahsoka shall be teaming up with the Darksaber’s one-time wielder Sabine Wren within the sequence, and the necessity for all the assistance she will get in opposition to threat of Grand Admiral Thrawn… may Huyang play a significant position in returning to the Mandalorians a strong image of resistance thought misplaced? We’ll have to attend and see.
