Did you know: there’s a Halloween special LEGO Star Wars feature coming to Disney+ on 1st October. Called LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales, it features all your favourite LEGO Star Wars character in a brand new story.
It’s a one-off special, with its own single narrative centring around a Darth Vader-themed vacation resort. Because why not? There’s some serious voice talent on board; Jake Green, Raphael Alejandro, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Christian Slater to name just a few. It has been written by David Shayne and directed by Ken Cunningham.
You can read the official story description below:
“After the events of The Rise of Skywalker, Poe and BB-8 must make an emergency landing on the volcanic planet Mustafar where they meet the greedy and conniving Graballa the Hutt who has purchased Darth Vader’s castle and is renovating it into the galaxy’s first all-inclusive Sith-inspired luxury hotel. While waiting for his X-wing to be repaired, Poe, BB-8, Graballa, and Dean (a plucky and courageous young boy who works as Graballa’s mechanic) venture deep into the mysterious castle with Vader’s loyal servant, Vaneé.
Along the way, Vaneé shares three creepy stories linked to ancient artifacts and iconic villains from across all eras of Star Wars. As Vaneé spins his tales and lures our heroes deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the castle, a sinister plan emerges. With the help of Dean, Poe and BB-8 will have to face their fears, stop an ancient evil from rising, and escape to make it back to their friends.”
Give the trailer a watch atop this post. The highlight is surely that The Shining reference right at the end of the video. We’re here for it.
It’ll be available to stream on Disney+ as part of a standard membership from 1st October.
