With Disney+ proving to be a mega-hub of Star Wars awesomeness, there was never any doubt in the platform expanding on its content from a galaxy far, far away. Aside from the hugely successful series The Mandalorian, Star Wars is set to be well represented by two more original series’ featuring Cassian Andor & K-2SO, and Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi. But today, we are hearing of another addition to the line-up which is sure to delight fans young and old.
Introducing Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge.
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, an exciting new Disney+ game show set in a galaxy far, far away, will test young contestants’ abilities in the core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge, and bravery as they face thrilling and fun obstacles in an attempt to achieve the rank of Jedi Knight! From lightsabers to hyperspace, the Force, and the dark side, Jedi Temple Challenge transports viewers and contestants into the Star Wars galaxy like never before.
The show is hosted by Ahmed Best, who will play a Jedi Master and mentor to the contestants. Known to many fans as Jar Jar Binks from the Star Wars prequels, Best’s unique set of skills as an actor, dancer, martial arts expert, STOMP musician, and Star Wars fan make him the perfect choice as the show’s host and mentor. Best is joined by a hilarious humanoid droid companion, voiced by Mary Holland (Veep, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre).
