LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales – Disney+ Original
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 artefacts and iconic villains from across all eras of Star Wars. As Vaneé spins his tales and lures our heroes deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the castle, a sinister plan emerges. With the help of Dean, Poe and BB-8 will have to face their fears, stop an ancient evil from rising, and escape to make it back to their friends.

Watch together on Halloween
If you can’t get together with you family and friends for a Halloween party this year, due to distance, you can still watch together, wherever you are thanks to Disney+ GroupWatch.
The GroupWatch feature allows you to sync your streams with up to six other people so you can all pause, break and rewind together.
Send this list to your friends and family who live far away, then take a vote on which movie you guys are going to sync up and watch together this Halloween.
Disney+ is suitable for audiences of all ages, thanks to the robust parental controls.
The app includes easy-to-use parental controls enabling a completely family friendly experience. As a main account holder, you can select bespoke content rating for each profile: 6+, 9+, 12+, 14+, 16+ or 18+.
This is great, meaning that our older kids can find something to keep them on the edge of their seat, but their little sister’s account stays safe and not too scary.
And remember, if no content rating is set, the default rating will be 14+ per profile so make sure to set up everyone’s account for the ages you need.
