Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, the new game show set in a galaxy far, far away, will soon arrive in our own.
Premiering with two full episodes on June
310, 2020, the weekly series tests young Padawans’ strength, knowledge, and bravery in a series of trials designed to discover who is capable of becoming a Jedi Knight.
The 10-episode series will debut on StarWarsKids.com and the official Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, which currently host Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures, Star Wars: The Clone Wars fun facts, craft and drawing tutorials, and several other activities for young fans.
And posted a brand new trailer:
Not to mention a new poster:
“[Becoming] Kelleran Beq, this new Jedi, what excited me the most was where the history is going to go,” said Best. “Who was he? How is he going to be a part of the Star Wars universe in a way that created these long-lasting stories.”
“I am so, so excited,” said Holland, who will play a new droid, AD-3. “What an honor.
“It’s really a dream come true.
“AD-3 is Kelleran Beq’s droid companion and she’s got a great sense of humor, and is envious of Jedi powers, because, as a droid, she has none. So she is always very aware of Kelleran Beq showing off what he can do with the Force.”
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge premieres on StarWarsKids.com on June 3.
