Marvel Studios is ready for Halloween!

On Saturday, the Disney studio revealed a teaser for its first TV special, the Halloween-themed Werewolf by Night, at Disney's D23 Expo.

Shot like classic monster movies in black-and-white, Werewolf by Night tells the story of Jack Russell, played by Gael Garcia Bernal, who transforms into a werewolf at night due to his family curse. Created by Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog in 1972, Jack manages to conquer powers and uses them for good and he becomes a hero fighting demons and other forces of evil, Variety reported.

The cast also includes Outlander's Laura Donnelly, Harriet Sansom Harris, Jaycob Maya and Eugenie Bondurant.

Werewolf by Night is co-directed by Maya and Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino, Deadline reported.

"This Halloween, you can't escape the shock, the terror of Werewolf by Night," the narrator in the teaser says.

"Tonight, it is every hunter for themselves," says the character of Verusa, played by Harris.

"Good luck, I'll be rotting for you," says the character of Ulysses.

Verusa then continues, "But one of you is a monster masquerading as one of our own. I can't wait to find out what breed of evil you are."
