Reality TV is going to a galaxy far, far away.
On Tuesday it was announced that Disney+ has ordered a “Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge”, a new reality competition series so be hosted by Jar Jar Binks actor Ahmed Best, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“This is definitely a kids game show like no other,” said Lucasfilm exec Mickey Capoferri. “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.”
The new series will be the “Star Wars” franchise’s first foray into reality TV. Disney+ is currently airing the scripted adventure drama “The Mandalorian”, with more “Star Wars” series starring Diego Luna and Ewan McGregor on the way.
