This Friday, Disney Plus goes scary with the release of LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales. The chilling animated short will offer a hair-raising take on the galaxy far, far away, and we are here for it. The LEGO shorts are always bags of fun, but when you add in some good old-fashioned Halloween hijinks; our excitement gets dialed to eleven.
Set after the events of The Rise Of Skywalker, Poe Dameron and BB-8 take us on a whirlwind adventure full of hidden terrors. And today, Lucasfilm has shared a cool new poster for the short that has all the hallmarks of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Check it out below. But have a cushion ready to hide behind.
ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARTH?
Fans of bricks, blasters, and things that go “boo” or “boop-beep” in the night, get ready. Disney+ debuted the trailer for “LEGO® Star Wars Terrifying Tales,” the all-new scary special from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group that will have fans ready for a frighteningly fun Halloween season. The special premieres on October 1, exclusively on the streaming service.
After the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Poe Dameron and BB-8 must make an emergency landing on the volcanic planet Mustafar where they meet the greedy and conniving Graballa the Hutt. The crime boss 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.
LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales was produced in collaboration with Atomic Cartoons. The one-off special will release on October 1st. 2021. Just in time for Halloween!
