On October 1, LEGO and Disney+ will be heading back to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales. Picking up after 2019's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the holiday special finds our familiar heroes not only having to stop the return of an ancient evil but also confront their fears. But did we mention this would all be happening at the galaxy's first all-inclusive Sith-inspired luxury hotel? Following up on the release of the official trailer earlier this month, viewers were treated to a look at the final, The Shining-inspired poster that makes us thankful that Jack Nicholson didn't have a lightsaber because the film would've ended about 30 minutes earlier than it did.
Directed by Ken Cunningham (The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special), the special finds Jake Green returning as Poe Dameron, along with Trevor Devall as Emperor Palpatine, and Matt Sloan as Darth Vader. The new additions to the cast include Raphael Alejandro (Raven's Home) as Dean, Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) as Graballa the Hutt, Tony Hale (The Mysterious Benedict Society) as Vaneé, Christian Slater (Dr. Death) as Ren, and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Star Wars Resistance) as NI-L8. Now here's your look at the official trailer for LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, set to "scream" on Disney+ beginning October 1st:
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.
The LEGO Holiday Special's David Shayne will write & executive produce LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, with James Waugh, Josh Rimes, Jacqui Lopez, Jill Wilfert, Keith Malone, and Jason Cosler also executive producing. Along with Terrifying Tales, Disney+'s "Hallowstream Celebration" will also include Muppets Haunted Mansion, a live-action special with Gonzo spending a night in Disney's (in)famous Haunted Mansion attraction and includes celebrity cameos and original musical numbers.
