Star Wars will get spooky on Oct. 1 when a Halloween special hits. Lego Star Wars Terrifying Tales will focus on dark side villains in a story that takes place after , Disney said Tuesday.
The special will see Poe and BB-8 making an emergency landing on volcanic hellscape planet Mustafar, where they’re forced to go on an adventure in Darth Vader’s castle and hear three creepy tales from different eras of Star Wars.
Along with the typical dark side baddies like Vader and Emperor Palpatine, the streaming special will focus on Ren, who preceded Ben Solo as leader of the Knights of Ren
Christian Slater will play Ren. Ren previously appeared in, and this will be his first appearance in another medium.
Terrifying Tales will likely have a similar sense of silly fun to last year’s. The Lego shows and specials are considered canon-adjacent rather than fully part of the continuity. Elements can inform the main universe, even if the wacky antics are out of step.
