Today Disney announced a new Star Wars-themed game show called Jedi Temple Challenge that will be a Disney+ exclusive. The new Disney+ exclusive will be 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,” Disney said in a statement to Cord Cutters News.
“This is definitely a kids game show like no other,” says 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.”
