Originally announced back in December, Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge begins next week, and a new trailer has been released which features Ahmed Best – a.k.a. the Prequel Trilogy’s Jar-Jar Binks – who makes his return to the galaxy far, far away as the game show’s host, the Jedi Master Kelleran Beq.
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge 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.”
Best’s Kelleran Beq is joined in the show joined by his droid companion AD-3 (voiced by Veep’s Mary Holland), while Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Sam Witwer portray the disembodied voice of the Dark Side of the Force.
