If you caught last year’s LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, you’ll likely have had a blast with it – a short, irreverent, timeline-remixing treat filled with the LEGO brand’s usual sense of humour, shuffling up elements from the Original, Prequel and Sequel trilogies. And now, the gang is back with a Halloween Special titled LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, spinning spooky stories from the galaxy far, far away with lashings of silly gags on top. Take a look at the trailer.

Is it serious, canonical Star Wars? No. But this looks like another daft delight from the LEGO Star Wars gang – with something for fans of every era. Among the story strands at play here, there’s Poe Dameron and BB-8 venturing to Vader’s castle on Mustafar – only to find it’s become an “all-inclusive luxury theme resort”. There’s fun stuff playing with resurrection (“the dead speak,” remember?) including undead droids and Darth Maul trying on a fresh set of legs. Plus we get a Monkey’s Paw – or, Wookiee’s Paw – story retelling of A New Hope, with Luke going to the Dark Side.

Even if it’s leaning into the Dark Side, LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales should be a bit of light entertainment to keep us all going until The Book Of Boba Fett arrives. And beyond that? Bring on the return of The Mandalorian in Season 3
