Ahmed Best, the actor who played Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, will host the new Disney + game show Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge.
Best will be joined by a humanoid droid co-host voiced by Mary Holland (VEEP, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre).
The show is aimed at children and the various challenges are said to “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,” said Dan Silver, vice president, Originals – Unscripted Content, Disney+. “A game show set in the Star Wars galaxy is a perfect fit for Disney+.”
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge will debut next year on Disney +.
