  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    The lack of alliteration on the Jawas team is disturbing, but you need to have a Jawa team. Jade Jawas?

    More ideas:
    Amethyst Acklays
    Viridescent Varactyls
    Neon Nerfs
    Black Banthas
    White Wookies

    I'm not thrilled by this at all. Marvel has a better selection of shows coming. Could do without this. Not trying to be a negative Nelly

    Will he wear the pre-CGI Jar Jar costume on the show?

    Jar Jar into the airlock.

    Guess its good for 6 year olds, cant see the point though. I think a live action Jedi Academy shorts might've been a better idea that could actually explore Jedi lore and training.

    I think I will watch the first episode out of canon obligation (I mean, it IS possible at some point a Jedi Master who looked and sounded like Amhed Best put padawans through the paces, sort of like how Lego Star Wars is canon-ish) but unless they have like a SW guest star host, pass on the rest.

    This is definitely something that's not intended for me, nor do I have any real interest in it, however, Star Wars is very much "for everyone," and I know such a game show will appeal to many individuals, both young and old. It's not exactly the direction I would take the property in, but, I'm not in charge of LFL, heh heh.

    I do think it's awesome Ahmed Best is involved though, and it brings me happiness to know he is in a much better place in life, and that many fans are embracing both his contribution to cinema (and the saga) and his actual character of Jar Jar Binks. His involvement alone will make me watch this show, despite the fact that it's not something I necessarily find interesting.

    Sure.
    Glad he got a gig.
    And it's more solid than a quick cameo in a movie. It's steady work.

    And he now has a droid sidekick....

    Welp! This is sure unexpected. Images just leaked on reddit. Looks like a mix of Star Wars and Legends of the Hidden Temple. Here's what the OP posted along with the pics:

    Here are the leaked images:

    I have an inkling that this was leaked a long while back. A Year or longer ago. So it's not really a surprise but more of an "Oh yeah, that's a thing!" Great to see it's finally confirmed.

    I highly doubt they were debating between this and another animated or live action show so I don’t see the reason to complain here. I am definitely going to show this to my cousins kids

    Hah! This is perfect, we even got the VA for Olmec already in the franchise. They ought to combine this with Guts! and have the kids climb the Citadel Wall from "Clone Cadets" Aggro Crag style.

    Fine.

    You know what would be cutting edge?
    If everyone... hosts and kids... all wore dotted up CG suits to compete, and then were converted into aliens and droids in post production.

    Best hosts the show as Jedi Master Kelleran Beq as he guides the players through three rounds of trials: strength, knowledge and bravery, as they compete to become JedI knights and wield the Jedi’s symbol, a lightsaber. With Best is Mary Holland (Veep, Upright Citizens Brigade) voicing the wise-cracking protocol droid companion AD-3, and Sam Witwer, who will provide a unique voice to the dark side of the Force. Witwer is known as the voice of Darth Maul Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Solo.

    “With so many children and families home and looking to Star Wars for hope and entertainment, we wanted to make Jedi Temple Challenge available to as many young fans as possible by airing the series on our Star Wars Kids network for everyone to enjoy,” says Lucasfilm’s senior director of Online Content & Programming, Mickey Capoferri.

    well at least we get some SW content for the Summer. Maybe if they announce something Lego would be fun way to have SW in Summer.

    Maybe they'll canonize Jedi Master Kelleran Beq in future in some form when telling some PT story.[face_whistling]
