LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales

As part of its Hallowstream celebration, Disney+ has announced LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, which is in the spirit of last year's LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special.

Here's the official synopsis:

“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.”

Hollywood actor Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) makes his Star Wars debut as Ren. The Ren a young Ben Solo killed in order to become the leader of the Knights of Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Slater previously cameoed in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Here's hoping he'll appear in a live-action Star Wars spin-off, too.

Like the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales is a follow-up to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and streams exclusively on Disney+ from 1st October.

A Star Wars pack including a Sphero BB-8 signed by JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy. Plus a chance to win an exclusive tour of Lucasfilm with a screening of any Star Wars movie of the winner's choice.

Fans have until May the 4th, Star Wars Day, to donate here.

In related news. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday in the UK. I chose the dark side, did you? Couldn't wait to return to a galaxy far, far away... Thanks to a friend, who gifted me an iTunes copy, I was able to watch with Sphero BB-8 on my new 9.7-inch iPad Pro (128GB) in Space Grey a week earlier. Stay tuned for an upcoming spoiler discussion with Andrew Lewin.

Marvel's Poe Dameron Star Wars comic co-stars BB-8

One of the coolest characters to emerge from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is ace pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). His bromance with Finn (John Boyega) has become a fan favourite and now Poe's adventures leading up to The Force Awakens can be read in Marvel comics from this April.

“Sometimes it can feel like the Star Wars universe is so well trodden and so many stories have already been told,” writer Charles Soule explains. “But the way the Episode VII galaxy is set up, there are opportunities for new archetypes almost, and the bad guy we’re working with is going to feel fresh and cool.”

Beloved ball droid BB-8 will co-star in the new comic alongside familiar faces from the original trilogy.
