Star Wars game show Jedi Temple Challenge coming to Disney+


And hosted by Jar Jar Binks... kinda.

A new Star Wars game show called Jedi Temple Challenge will air exclusively on Disney+, Disney today confirmed.

Hosted by Ahmed Best, the voice of Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels, Jedi Temple Challenge is a children’s game show, designed to test contestants in the “core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge, and bravery.”

“This is definitely a kids game show like no other,” said Lucasfilm’s senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri. “The various challenges will test a Padawan’s connection to the Force in three locations — a forest planet, on board a Jedi star cruiser, and inside a Jedi temple — immersing them and the audience in a fun, humorous, and exciting competition.”

Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge brings together the best of Star Wars — competitive spirit, harrowing obstacles and a hero’s triumph over challenges — in a totally new format for the franchise,” added Dan Silver, Vice Presiden of Originals (Unscripted Content) at Disney+. “A game show set in the Star Wars galaxy is a perfect fit for Disney+.”

Star Wars Jedi Temple Challenge will air on Disney+ in 2020.
