Today saw the launch of the brand new Star Wars game show, Jedi Temple Challenge on YouTube, with the first two episodes being made available, with new episodes dropping each week.
Originally this series was going to be a Disney+ Original, but the decision was made that due to the current Coronavirus situation, it would be made available to everyone on YouTube. Hopefully at some point in the future, it will also be made available on Disney+.
Each episode, tests young Padawans’ strength, knowledge, and bravery in a series of trials designed to discover who is capable of becoming a Jedi Knight. The 10-episode series will debut on StarWarsKids.com and the official Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, which currently host Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures, Star Wars: The Clone Wars fun facts, craft and drawing tutorials, and several other activities for young fans.
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.
