A lot of seasonal celebrations tend to start celebrating early. LEGO is also up to starting the party days and weeks before the event itself. Take for instance their LEGO Star Wars “Terrifying Tales” animated special. It’s premiering on Disney+ the first of October, when Halloween falls on the last. Yet even before that rib-tickling sendup to horror anthologies starts streaming, LEGO’s already gotten more animated shorts out. No less than six Halloween-themed LEGO Star Wars shorts are up now on the LEGO YouTube channel. And as “short” as they are, they’ve been collected into a single compilation shown below.
Fans of LEGO Star Wars and the more recent “Star Wars” content streaming or coming to Disney+ will love this. Of the five animated shorts, three features “The Mandalorian” and one has “The Bad Batch.” That doesn’t mean other “Star Wars” properties are neglected. Boba Fett shows up with Din Djarin in one short where they try to outdo each other in ship makeovers. Seeing Boba Fett’s Starship (75312) decked out in various Halloween motifs is a riot. Similarly hilarious is the short where Darth Maul and Ahsoka Tano duel each in a pumpkin-carving contest.
If you didn’t get the hint, these LEGO Star Wars Halloween shorts feature more recent sets from the theme. The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle (75314) is also there in a short about a pumpkins and a battle droid. Satirically reworking Din’s search of Grogu in a Star Destroyer as a Trick-or-Treat run? That was just marvelously hilarious. If nothing else, these shorts should tide LEGO Star Wars fans over until “Terrifying Tales” arrives on Disney+ streaming. It comes on this October 1, so don’t forget.
