Star Wars: Ahsoka’s Jedi Droid Huyang Is Older Than You Think
“Ahsoka” has live-action debuts of many “Star Wars” characters, but ancient lightsaber architect Huyang (David Tennant) is the most intriguing. The droid is older than you realize.
Huyang served the Jedi Order for millennia before the Disney+ series. Although the droid's exact origins are a mystery, we know that he was built around 25,020 BBY.
Over time, Huyang has educated a thousand generations of Jedi younglings, teaching them about the history of the galaxy and aiding them in their sacred rite of passage.
Huyang has accompanied these Jedi hopefuls to Ilum and helped them craft their own lightsabers after they have claimed their kyber crystals.
Huyang continues his teachings on “Ahsoka,” using his knowledge to help Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) train Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo).
Huyang has experienced almost every major event in the “Star Wars” universe. His creation in 25,020 BBY may even coincide with the formation of the Galactic Republic c. 25,000 BBY.
This means he vastly predates any other character “Star Wars” has explored on-screen. Notably, Huyang lived through the legendary Jedi-Sith War and the High Republic Era.
Following the Old Republic, High Republic Era, and Imperial Era, “Ahsoka” depicts Huyang in the New Republic Era partnering with Ahsoka in her search for Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).
