Official Description

This description was taken from official source. Do not modify it.

It’s the night of the Blood Moon, and the fate of Newbury hangs in the balance. It’s up to Jack, Parker, J.B., Douglas and Spencer to stop the upcoming ghost invasion – and one of them will pay the ultimate sacrifice. Who will it be? What a cliffhanger! Press play to watch this LEGO® Hidden Side™ adventure.


Inside Newbury High School, the Ghosts are in the process of trying to release Lady E. from the Hidden Side. Suddenly, the Ghost Hunters show up and they get into a lengthy brawl.

Mamali attacks Jack, but he uses the Blaster to chase her away. Meanwhile, Parker is caught trying to defend herself against Captain Archibald, but Parker is able to capture him. On the other hand, Dr. Drewell spews green slime onto J.B. but he realizes that it's her and he makes sure that she's okay. In order not to draw any detection, they pretend to fight. While all of this is going on, Douglas finds Lady E's portrait and tries to remove it, but The Bawa sees him. Luckily, he too is captured by J.B. Finally, Mr. Nibs confronts Spencer and blames him for stealing the Teddy Bear, but like his fellow Boss Ghosts, he too is captured.

The Ghost Hunters successfully defeat all of the Ghosts, but it's too late, as the Blood Moon reaches Lady E.'s portrait, allowing her to escape the Hidden Side. A portal is opened, and her skeleton form is seen exiting her portrait. The Hunters try to stop her by shooting at her, but it has no effect.

Douglas realizes that the Blood Moon is allowing Lady E. to escape, so he makes a perilous attempt to stop her by shielding the light from her, forcing her back into the Hidden Side. It also causes Douglas to enter the Hidden Side, with his helmet and cape remaining behind.

The rest of the Hunters mourn their lost ally, and when morning arises, they decide to leave. However, his helmet and cape mysteriously rise and a skeleton pops out of nowhere. The skeleton then wears the costume and the Hunters realize that it's Douglas. They begin to celebrate, but Douglas warns them that Lady E. will return soon.
