The Force is strong – and fun! A trailer for the very first Star Wars game show entitled Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge has been released. The kids’ show, premiering in June, will feature pairs of young Jedi Knight hopefuls facing off in three rounds of trials to eventually earn their lightsabers.
Fans of the old Nickelodeon TV game shows, Legends of the Hidden Temple and Double Dare should get similar vibes from these Star Wars-themed team challenges and puzzles. And keen-eyed Star Wars film fans might get a kick out of seeing the show’s host, Ahmed Best (aka Jar Jar Binks) in a very different form.
Check out the trailer below:
“With so many children and families home and looking to Star Wars for hope and entertainment, we wanted to make Jedi Temple Challenge available to as many young fans as possible by airing the series on our Star Wars Kids network for everyone to enjoy,” says Lucasfilm’s senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri.
The show was first announced as a part of the Disney+ lineup, but will instead air on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel and Starwarskids.com. The first two episodes of the 10-episode season will debut on Wednesday, June 3, with the following new episodes airing weekly.
