Disney is always ready to go all-in on holiday fun, and it appears the company already has Halloween in its sights. A recent Tweet from the Disney+ Twitter account revealed a fascinating peek at an upcoming LEGO Star Wars Halloween special.
Starting on October 1, Disney+ viewers will be able to stream LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, a brand-new animated special that takes place after The Rise of Skywalker. The fun-themed adventure follows pilot Poe Dameron and droid BB-8 as they make an emergency landing on volcanic planet Mustafar (yep, the planet with Darth Vader’s castle).

On Mustafar, Dameron and BB-8 encounter Graballa the Hutt. The group, along with Graballa’s mechanic, cross paths with one of Vader’s loyal followers, who takes them deep into Vader’s castle while telling them ghostly tales about some of the universe’s most grim figures.
What none of the heroes know is that there’s a darker force lurking within the fortress that’s threatening to break free, and the characters will all have to work together to escape. While it might be tempting to write off the LEGO Halloween special, it’ll still be worth watching to see how that universe continues after the end of the final live-action sequel trilogy.
Clearly Disney isn’t the only one in the spooky mood. LEGO also just released two new Halloween sets that you can use to help decorate your home. But if that’s not enough for you, be sure to get your blankets and Halloween treats ready—the seasonal special hits Disney+ on October 1.
