Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, hosted by Ahmed Best, will be a kid’s game show which sounds like something in the vein of Nickelodeon’s Legends of the Hidden Temple.
“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,” said Lucasfilm’s senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri.
Best will play a Jedi Master and be joined by a humanoid droid companion, voiced by Mary Holland.
The cat is out of the bag, and so this is the last post where I’m going to play coy at the big spoiler at the end of The Mandalorian’s first episode. I know the show isn’t available worldwide just yet, but keeping the very existence of what is clearly going to be a pivotal character secret is simply not feasible for a news site. Even the official folks have given up the ghost, and per usual I am taking my cues on what is and isn’t a spoiler from them. Consider yourselves warned!
