Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge to stream exclusively on Disney+
------------------------------------------------------------ -----
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, an exciting new Disney+ game
show set in a galaxy far, far away, will test 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! From lightsabers to hyperspace,
the Force, and the dark side, Jedi Temple Challenge transports
viewers and contestants into the Star Wars galaxy like never
before.

The show is hosted by Ahmed Best, who will play a Jedi Master and
mentor to the contestants. Known to many fans as Jar Jar Binks
from the Star Wars prequels, 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 (Veep, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre).

"This is definitely a kids game show like no other," says
Lucasfilm's senior director of Online Content & Programming,
Mickey Capoferri. "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."

"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 is developed by Lucasfilm's
Scott Bromley and Steve Blank with Mickey Capoferri and Christine
Beebe serving as executive producers. The series is produced by
Lucasfilm and Endeavor Content's non-scripted group with executive
producers Dean Houser, David Chamberlin, and Mike Antinoro.

Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge will stream exclusively on Disney+
in 2020.
