STAR Wars fans will get a chance to enter the Jedi ranks in a new Disney+ TV game show — if they can stomach the return of the muchmaligned Jar Jar Binks.

‘Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge’ will be hosted by Ahmed Best, who played the bumbling, comedic alien sidekick regularly voted the sci-fi franchise’s most hated character.

The live-action game show will appear on Disney’s new on-demand streaming platform Disney+, which launched in the US last month with a flagship new scripted Star Wars series ‘The Mandalorian.’

 Young contestants will take on challenges in three locations including a forest planet, on board a star cruiser, and inside a Jedi temple, said Disney recently.

The competition will test “core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge, and bravery,” and will feature iconic Star Wars elements such as lightsabers, hyperspace, the Force and the dark side, a statement said.

However Best — a musician and former ‘Stomp’ cast member — will shun his Jar Jar Binks character this time, and instead play a Jedi master who will serve as host and mentor to contestants.

Mary Holland (Veep) will cohost as a humanoid droid companion.

Disney+ executive Dan Silver described the show, launching in 2020, as a totally new format for the franchise. It is produced by Disneyowned Lucasfilm and Endeavor Content. – AFP
