Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge Premieres
Jedi Temple Challenge: A Game Show Set In A Galaxy Far, Far Away….
Firstly, do you guys remember “Double Dare”? Oh right. I’m old.
Maybe you remember “Legends of the Hidden Temple”? There we go. Yep.
Anyway, imagine Double Dare or Hidden Temple set in a galaxy far, far away.
That gives you Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge.
The Adventure Begins: Jedi Temple Challenge
Kristin Baver broke down the game in her latest for StarWars.com:
- Ahmed Best is positively beaming as he stands before six eager young Padawans. The actor best known among Star Wars fans as Jar Jar Binks has traded a duckbilled Gungan mo-cap suit for simple and sleek Jedi robes to transform into Jedi Master Kelleran Beq, the host of Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge. The new Star Wars Kids game show dares competitors to take on the core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge, and bravery through physical and mental challenges on an exotic forest planet, inside a starship, and deep in the bowels of an ancient Jedi Temple…
- As the first Star Wars-themed game show, Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge invites real kids to immerse themselves in the galaxy far, far away. The premise is a unique construct that challenges players and fans watching at home with mind-bending memory games, but gently reinforces one of the most important Jedi lessons: Winning is nice, sure, but failure can be the greatest teacher…
- In reality, the sprawling obstacle course is laid out inside a Los Angeles, California, soundstage. An homage to the kids’ cable game shows that dominated the airwaves in the 1990s, right around the time Jar Jar Binks made his debut in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, the show is the brainchild of Lucasfilm’s Scott Bromley, Steve Blank, and Mickey Capoferri.
