A lot of us were ready and waiting for Ahmed Best to return to Star Wars, and to see kids try to be Jedi Masters. But the team behind the show have decided to push it back to June 10th due to the protests.

As a producer on the show, Best has announced the delay on Instagram:

I’m so pumped to share #jeditemplechallenge with everyone. The fan response at Celebration last year was the beginning of my return to the galaxy I love so much. #KelleranBeq “The Sabered Hand” is the first Black number one lead of anything #StarWars and that is so very important to me. I’m also a #producer of the show and that makes me doubly excited to bring this thing to you. But as a black man, a black father, a black producer and black artist I have to consider all that is happening in the world right now. Our team has decided to push the premiere of #Jeditemplechallenge until next Wednesday June 10th. Hopefully we can be in a better headspace next week to enjoy this game show. I’ve been a part of this family for twenty years and I’ve felt your support. The excitement behind #KelleranBeq has me bursting with ideas of lore and backstory. Can’t wait to share all of that with you. Star Wars fans, I appreciate us. #maytheforcebewithyoualways #hangwithmeonemoreweek #starwarsfandom #balance #jarjarbinks #blacklivesmatter #blackproducer #blackartists #maytheforcebewithyou

We just have to wait a bit longer. The show will premier the first two episodes on Star Wars Kids June 10th.
