The Star Wars franchise already seemingly has dominated every corner of the media market, including new streaming service Disney+ with The Mandalorian, and now they’re looking to keep it going with a new live-action game show on the service hosted by Ahmed Best, the actor behind the prequel trilogy’s Jar Jar Binks (via StarWars.com).

The series, entitled Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, will test young contestants’ abilities in the core Jedi principles of strength, knowledge and bravery as they face various obstacles in an attempt to achieve the rank of Jedi Knight. Contestants and audiences will be transported to a galaxy far, far away as the series will feature lightsabers, hyperspace, the Force and the dark side in ways never seen before.

Best will host as a Jedi Master and a mentor to the contestants and will utilize his skills as an actor, dancer, martial arts expert, STOMP musician and fan of the space-faring franchise. He will be joined by the humanoid droid companion voiced by Veep and Blunt Talk alum Mary Holland.

This is definitely a kids game show like no other,” Lucasfilm’s senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri, said in a statement. “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.
