This is all treats, no tricks: Disney+ has released a trailer for the Halloween-themed special LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales (premiering Friday, Oct. 1).
Tony Hale (Veep) voices Darth Vader’s loyal servant Vaneé as he tells three spooky stories: “The Lost Boy,” which recounts how a young Ben Solo first meets Ren; “The Dueling Monstrosities,” which imagines how Darth Maul and General Grievous were reborn; and “The Wookiee’s Paw,” which explores what might have happened if all of Luke Skywalker’s greatest wishes were immediately granted.
