Check out that sweet Evil Dead-esque key art. We think it's pretty groovy. This Halloween season the force will be with us all. Lego Star Wars Terrifying Tales will blend the world of Star Wars with some spookiness, intertwining villains and ancient artifacts from the universe with creepy origin stories, (like a cool Star Wars haunted history lesson!) It sounds like these stories will draw heavily from the Tales From Vader's Castle comics series. The cast for this upcoming holiday special includes Tony Hale and Christian Slater. Check out the full official synopsis below.

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.

Of course, Fango and Star Wars go way back — all the way to June 1980 when C-3PO and R2D2 graced our cover for issue #6.

The complete voice cast includes Jake Green as Poe Dameron, Raphael Alejandro as Dean, Dana Snyder as Graballa the Hutt, Tony Hale as Vaneé, Christian Slater as Ren, Trevor Devall as Emperor Palpatine, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn as NI-L8 and Matt Sloan as Darth Vader.

LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales is produced in collaboration with Atomic Cartoons, written and executive produced by David Shayne, directed by Ken Cunningham. Executive producers: James Waugh, Josh Rimes, Jacqui Lopez, Jill Wilfert, Keith Malone and Jason Cosler.

The holiday special will stream on Disney+ October 1, 2021.
