Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple

Watch your younglings transform into Padawan learners as they train with Star Wars heroes in the ways of the Force.

Jedi Knights have assembled Force-sensitive children from throughout the galaxy to test their abilities during Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.

Under the tutelage of the Jedi, the recruits learn how to use the Force—and their wit—to wield lightsabers. Now that the Empire has driven the Jedi to the distant corners of the galaxy, the training must proceed in secret at ancient Jedi temples.

But not even this precaution can shield the Jedi from the evil forces of the dark side for long. Soon, the temple opens and the students are challenged to use their new skills when they come face-to-face with their greatest fears—in the frightening form of notorious Star Wars villains!

All entertainment experiences are subject to change without notice.
