After the fun of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, Disney+ is doubling down on the holiday fun of LEGO SW. This Halloween will bring us LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, and has Poe Dameron and BB-8 exploring Vader’s Castle (which has been converted into some kind of Haunted Mansion theme park).
Check out the LEGO Star Wars trailer down here:
Here’s the official description:
“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.”
Though the story isn’t canon, this is the closest thing we have to progress when it comes to Sequel Trilogy material. We have some sort of backstory to the fall of Ben Solo, plus we get a Star Wars What If…? situation where Vader takes Luke Skywalker under his wing to become an Imperial pilot.
Though we have material like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi incoming, I would love to keep exploring the universe pushing forward. Ever since TROS, I’m kind of itching to get back to the ST era instead of staying in the same OT and PT timelines.
LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales hits Disney+ on Oct. 1.
