It was solely a matter of time earlier than we acquired a Star Wars recreation present, and that point is sort of at hand.
Star Wars: Jedi Temple Problem, a brand new recreation present that sounds just like the basic Nickelodeon collection Legends of the Hidden Temple, is heading to Disney+ in 2020. And Ahmed Greatest, who performed Jar Jar Binks within the prequel trilogy, goes to function the host. Get the main points concerning the new present under.
Based on StarWars.com, the brand new present is “set in a galaxy far, far-off” and “will check younger contestants’ skills within the core Jedi ideas of energy, information, and bravado as they face thrilling and enjoyable obstacles in an try to realize the rank of Jedi Knight!” That is fully new floor for the Star Wars property, however its growth makes plenty of sense as a manner for Disney to maintain the franchise on younger peoples’ minds, particularly with the way forward for the movies at present in flux.
Greatest will play a Jedi Grasp and mentor to the younger contestants, whereas he’ll be joined by “a hilarious humanoid droid companion, voiced by Mary Holland (VEEP, Upright Residents Brigade Theatre).” Holland is without doubt one of the funniest folks within the improv scene right this moment – I’ve seen her carry out in a number of comedy reveals (together with the superb Wild Horses) and he or she’s constantly some of the hilarious folks on the stage, so she looks like a wonderful match for this. In the meantime, Greatest has expertise as an actor, dancer, martial arts skilled, and STOMP musician, so he ought to be capable to deal with something that’s thrown his manner (an important talent for any nice recreation present host).
Mickey Capoferri, Lucasfilm’s senior director of On-line Content material & Programming, referred to as this “undoubtedly a children recreation present like no different,” and gave us extra particulars concerning the setting for the sport present. “The varied challenges will check a Padawan’s connection to the Drive in three areas — a forest planet, on board a Jedi star cruiser, and inside a Jedi temple — immersing them and the viewers in a enjoyable, humorous, and thrilling competitors.” Nickelodeon recreation reveals like Legends of the Hidden Temple are fondly remembered by members of my technology, however in such a splintered leisure panorama right this moment, I’m wondering if Jedi Temple Problem will be capable to have the identical lasting influence.
Capoferri, Christine Beebe, Dean Houser, David Chamberlin, and Mike Antinoro would be the present’s government producers, and it was developed by Lucasfilm’s Scott Bromley and Steve Clean. There’s no official premiere date scheduled but, however Star Wars: Jedi Temple Problem will stream solely on Disney+ beginning in 2020.
