Three new scary-flavored LEGO Star Wars animated shorts have been released online, celebrating Halloween even in that galaxy far, far away.
From this week’s official announcement, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm have unleashed three new Halloween-themed shorts, available now on Star Wars Kids. The boo- and brick-filled tales include “The Sith Witch of Mustafar,” in which Darth Vader feels the fright of an old legend; “Mech My Day,” featuring a stormtrooper who builds his own mech suit in order to confront his Sith boss; and “Mandoween,” which finds Grogu playing a terrifying trick on Din Djarin. The charming shorts blend Halloween and Star Wars for a frighteningly fun time, appropriate for Jedi Masters and younglings alike.
“We’re thrilled to launch three new shorts in partnership with our friends at LEGO,” says Lucasfilm’s Josh Rimes, VP, animation development and production. “For the past couple years, LEGO Star Wars, with its sense of anarchic humor, has been a perfect pairing for seasonal holiday fun. Celebrating the creepy vibes of Halloween within a galaxy far, far away is a challenge, but it’s something that LEGO Star Wars is uniquely positioned to do and we hope fans of all ages discover and share these brand-new, bite-sized terrifying tales!”
David Shayne, writer of the verbal short “The Sith Witch of Mustafar,” reveals that his short combines Star Wars with the Halloween-set horror movie classic The Blair Witch Project. “I’ve jokingly referred to this as ‘The Sith Witch Project’ and you can see the Blair Witch influence, particularly in the Emperor’s terrorized ‘found footage’ moment with his holo-projector,” he tells StarWars.com. “After all the times Vader and the Emperor have frightened us, for once we wanted to see the tables turned on THEM! Now if we can just do a prequel, ’cause I am dying to see what happens at Vader’s Castle Halloween Party. I suspect there’s bobbing for jogan fruits…”
LEGO and Lucasfilm previously collaborated on the hilarious and horror-inspired 2021 Halloween special LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales, which is currently streaming on Disney+
