Recently, Disney announced “Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge”, a new game show, would be coming to YouTube on June 3rd, however with the current events in the United States, the show has been delayed a week.

Jar Jar Binks Actor and Jedi Temple Challenge host Ahmed Best announced the delay on Instagram, stating:

I’m so pumped to share #jeditemplechallenge with everyone. The fan response at Celebration last year was the beginning of my return to the galaxy I love so much. #KelleranBeq “The Sabered Hand” is the first Black number one lead of anything #StarWars and that is so very important to me. I’m also a #producer of the show and that makes me doubly excited to bring this thing to you. But as a black man, a black father, a black producer and black artist I have to consider all that is happening in the world right now. Our team has decided to push the premiere of #Jeditemplechallenge until next Wednesday June 10th. Hopefully we can be in a better headspace next week to enjoy this game show. I’ve been a part of this family for twenty years and I’ve felt your support. The excitement behind #KelleranBeq has me bursting with ideas of lore and backstory. Can’t wait to share all of that with you. Star Wars fans, I appreciate us. #maytheforcebewithyoualways

“Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge” was originally going to be released on Disney+, but due to the current Coronavirus situation, Disney decided they wanted it to be available to as many people as possible, so announced it would be “debuting” on YouTube first.  So it’s still likely that it will eventually be available on Disney+ as well, though nothing has been confirmed regarding a Disney+ release.

Ahmed Best, known to many fans as Jar Jar Binks from the Star Wars prequels, hosts the show as a new Jedi, Master Kelleran Beq. Best guides players through three rounds of trials as they vie to become Jedi Knights and wield the iconic symbol of the guardians of peace and justice, the lightsaber. Accompanying Best is Mary Holland (Veep, Upright Citizens Brigade) who voices the wise-cracking protocol droid companion AD-3, and Sam Witwer, who gives a unique voice to the dark side of the Force. Witwer recently reprised his role as the voice of Darth Maul in the critically acclaimed final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
