Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge Coming to Disney Plus
Another new show will be coming to Disney+ next year. Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge is an exciting new game show set in a galaxy far, far away, which tests 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!
The show will be hosted by Ahmed Best, who played Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels, will play a Jedi Master and mentor to the contestants. Best will be joined by a humanoid droid companion, voiced by Mary Holland (VEEP, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre).
"This is definitely a kids game show like no other. 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," says Lucasfilm's senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri.
"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," said Dan Silver, vice president, Originals - Unscripted Content, Disney+. "A game show set in the Star Wars galaxy is a perfect fit for Disney+."
From lightsabers to hyperspace, the Force, and the dark side, Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge will transport viewers and contestants into the Star Wars galaxy like never before.
The new show will be executive produced by Lucasfilm, Dean Houser, and David Chamberlin and Mike Antinoro from Endeavor Content.
