The First Star Wars Game Show Coming to Disney+

Jar Jar Binks is returning to the Star Wars universe! Okay, that might sound a little misleading, but the actor who played this character will be! Ahmed Best will make his triumphant return in the all-new and first ever Star Wars game show Jedi Temple Challenge where young-aged contestants will prove their abilities “in the core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge, and bravery as they face thrilling and fun obstacles.”

This show is aimed at younger audiences while growing Disney’s streaming service presence. Jedi Temple Challenge will premiere exclusively on Disney+.

“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.”

Senior Director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri

According to a Disney press release, Ahmed Best was hands-down the best choice to host this exhilarating Star Wars kid’s show.

“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…. Best is joined by a hilarious humanoid droid companion, voiced by Mary Holland.”


With the addition of well-known actor like Ahmed Best, Disney aims to bring child-like fun to the Star Wars franchise through their family-friendly platform, Disney+.

“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. A game show set in the Star Wars galaxy is a perfect fit for Disney+.”

Dan Silver, Vice President, Originals – Unscripted Content, Disney+

Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge is executive produced by Lucasfilm, Dean Houser, and David Chamberlin and Mike Antinoro from Endeavor Content.
