Disney+ reveals line-up of new and classic Halloween movies and shows
We're getting closer to spooky season!
Halloween is a great holiday to celebrate with the entire family, and if you've got some younger relatives that you maybe don't want to traumatise with something properly scary, you'll be happy to hear that Disney+ has announced its Halloween line-up, filled with releases suitable for pretty much all ages.
Star Wars! The Simpsons! The Muppets! Marvel! They're all celebrating in style this year.
Here are the three big new Halloween releases coming to Disney+ this October:
LEGO Stars Wars Terrifying Tales (Friday, 1 October)
Official Synopsis: "After the events of The Rise of Skywalker, Poe and BB-8 must make an emergency landing on the volcanic planet Mustafar where they meet the greedy and conniving Graballa the Hutt who has purchased Darth Vader’s castle and is renovating it into the galaxy’s first all-inclusive Sith-inspired luxury hotel.
"While waiting for his X-Wing to be repaired, Poe, BB-8, Graballa, and Dean – a plucky and courageous young boy who works as Graballa’s mechanic – venture deep into the mysterious castle with Vader’s loyal servant, Vaneé.
"Along the way, Vaneé shares three creepy stories linked to ancient artifacts and iconic villains from across all eras of Star Wars."
