LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales

The latest LEGO Star Wars short film arrives to Disney+ this weekend and with a spooky theme, it arrives just in time for Halloween! The film follows Poe Dameron and BB-8 who visit Castle Vader, the galaxy’s “first all-inclusive, Sith-inspired, luxury resort.”. At 46 minutes in length, it’s actually quite a substantial watch and may just appease fans both young and old with a Star Wars fix this Halloween.

Starring Kate Winslet, Saoirse Ronan and Fiona Shaw, Ammonite is a romantic drama film loosely inspired by the life of British palaeontologist Mary Anning. This isn’t a blockbuster film by any means, but it’s a really unique story exploring the speculative romantic relationship between Mary Anning and British geologist Charlotte Murchison.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video (available to stream 1st October)
