No matter how hard Disney tries, it will never be able to carry the torch lit by the original Star Wars trilogy. But Star Wars with LEGO in the mix, on the other hand, sounds like an absolute blast.
Speaking of which, LEGO has just shared the official trailer of the LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales. The beautiful thing about this Halloween special animated movie is, it has zero relation to any of the original franchises and its sequels or prequels. It will be a fun ride with Poe Dameron and BB-8 dotted with LEGO-style humor which is how we like it.
Here’s the official description:
“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.”
After watching the trailer (which is awesome, btw), I find that Vaneé has the Crypt Keeper vibe in him in the way he speaks. LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales will start streaming on Disney+ on October 01, 2021.
