However is something ever actually gone in Star Wars? It’s telling that the Darksaber was merely grievously broken relatively than utterly destroyed—and even when the galaxy far, distant has seemingly gone out of its option to present a legendary weapon like a lightsaber being misplaced, it will probably nonetheless discover its means into the palms of a brand new hero. Whereas it looks like The Mandalorian and Star Wars at giant 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 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 organize for the seeming return of Grand Admiral Thrawn, an intriguing character glimpsed within 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 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doubt one of the few remaining characters with the information of constructing and repairing a lightsaber, even one as outdated and as closely broken because the Darksaber is.

Provided 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 towards menace of Grand Admiral Thrawn… might Huyang play a significant position in returning to the Mandalorians a strong image of resistance thought misplaced? We’ll have to attend and see.
