Ahmed Best may not be playing Jar Jar Binks anymore, but he’s coming back to Star Wars to host this kids show called Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge. The show had just released its first trailer, and we have Best all dressed up in Jedi robes.
We don’t have an official description for the show as of now, but by the looks of it, it’s basically Legends of the Hidden Temple but everything is Star Wars themed. You have all the earmarks of a kid-friendly reality show, from the fun games and puzzles to obstacle courses. Even Best gets his own droid companions to add a little flavor to the game.
If anything, the show is another testament to how Star Wars is for everyone. While adults can enjoy the heavier-themed books and comics, kids can have fun with the animated webisodes and shows like Jedi Temple Challenge. I don’t really expect production to go all out for this series, but I think it would be fun if they’re able to get some actors from the series to make an appearance. While it would be fun to catch Daisy Ridley or John Boyega interacting with some contestants, I would also love for Mark Hamill to play the part of Jedi master Luke Skywalker—before Kylo took down his academy.
