A Star Wars game show is coming to Disney+

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.

Look for it on Disney+ in 2020.

Concept art of [spoiler] and more The Mandalorian news

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!

The Mandalorian has a name after all

Pedro Pascal is dropping information!  The name of the Mandalorian in The Mandalorian is Din Jarin, (spelling verification to come?) he says in handout video posted by ScreenSlam.

Hopefully it comes up in the show – and he gets rid of that helmet at least some of the time. (Why do you hire Pedro Pascal and keep a helmet on him all the time?!?)
