It’s not all doom and gloom in the galaxy. While the Skywalkers cause all sorts of trouble, some people (or creatures as the case may be) just want to make a quick buck, and that seems to entail the inciting incident of “LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales.” The short film sees Poe Dameron and BB-8 wind up on Mustafar, where they stumble upon Graballa the Hutt’s latest endeavor — a Sith-inspired luxury hotel filled to the brim with Dark Side memorabilia.
The clip involves Graballa showing Poe around, culminating in an animatronic, albeit malfunctioning, Darth Vader replica. Things don’t seem so spooky in the teaser, but with a 46-minute runtime, there are ample opportunities for mischief to go around. And we have a feeling that Skelo-Trooper armor will factor into the chaos later in the plot.
It’s all part of a push from Disney+ to get more scary content onto the platform for the month of October. Once you’ve finished watching “LEGO Star Wars,” you can look forward to the likes of Season 1 of “The Ghost and Molly McGee” and “Muppets Haunted Mansion.” There’s no treat sweeter than new “Star Wars” and “Muppets” specials.
