Fans of “Star Wars” of all ages can look forward to a new original special on Disney+, thanks to a partnership between the streaming service and LEGO. This year’s LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special may be a familiar one to fans. Rey, Finn, Poe, R2-D2, Chewbacca, and others from the Lucasfilm universe gathered to celebrate Life Day in the animated short. The 48-minute animated programme brought a little bit of holiday cheer at a time when we all needed it.
“Star Wars Holiday Special” of 1978 was an embarrassment that was more than made up for by this. This time around, viewers can expect some seasonal thrills and chills, as well as the self-aware humour that LEGO fans have come to enjoy. On October 31, the streaming service will offer LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales. “Rest in Pieces” is written on a tombstone behind a blocky hand emerging from a grave with a crimson light sabre in its grasp.
LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special 2020 focused on Life Day, an imaginary holiday that arose on Kashyyyk, a world inhabited by Wookiees (see below). Wookiees celebrate Life Day with their families to commemorate a time of love and life. A similar holiday to Earth’s winter holidays, it was devised for the 1978 “Star Wars Holiday Special” idea.
Disney+’s Halloween “spooktacular” has no seasonal celebration, but it’s evident from the title and release date that the service wants to provide its followers with a fun and family-friendly experience. In addition, there’s a new LEGO Star Wars movie coming out on October 1, which will appeal to both LEGO enthusiasts and horror movie buffs.
Star Wars may have included some horrific monsters, but it’s not a horror franchise. It’s possible, however, that Disney+ is hoping to make their newest Halloween special a new Halloween tradition. In “LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales,” an ominous narrator will deliver horrifying stories while exploring a haunted house. Then, Poe and BB-8 make an emergency landing on Mustafar, where they meet “greedy and deceitful” crime boss Graballa the Hutt.
Vader’s servant Vanee tells “three scary stories” from each of the “Star Wars” eras with Poe, BB-8, Graballa, and Graballa’s young mechanic Dean later in the film. Vaneé’s stories lead our protagonists deeper into the castle’s murky underbelly, where a nefarious plan emerges, according to the synopsis. ‘With Dean’s help, Poe and BB-8 will have to face their anxieties, stop an ancient evil from rising, and escape to rejoin their companions.’ LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales will be available on Disney+ on October 1, 2021.
