It looks like Disney has done it again! The Haunted Mansion Teaser 2023 is out Today the trailer for the NEW Haunted House movie dropped. Although they released another version in 2003 starring Eddie Murphy but was considered a financial flop and Disney shelved the idea. Now, 20 years later, it looks like they are back with a BANG!
The Haunted Mansion is one of Disney’s most beloved and iconic attractions, but its origins date back to the late 1950s when Walt Disney tasked his Imagineers with designing a spooky walk-through exhibit for Disneyland. The idea evolved over the years, and by the early 1960s, it had become a dark ride that would take guests on a tour through a haunted mansion filled with ghosts and ghouls.
The Haunted Mansion opened at Disneyland in 1969, featuring cutting-edge audio-animatronics and special effects that transported guests into a world of eerie delights. The ride was an instant hit, and its popularity has only grown over the years, leading to versions of the attraction being built at Disney parks around the world.
Over the decades, the Haunted Mansion has been updated and enhanced with new technology and special effects, but it remains true to its original concept and continues to be a fan favorite. Its iconic characters, such as the Hitchhiking Ghosts and Madame Leota, have become beloved parts of Disney lore, and the ride remains a must-visit attraction for guests of all ages.
In addition to its success as a theme park attraction, the Haunted Mansion also inspired a feature film adaptation in 2003. Starring Eddie Murphy, the movie follows a real estate agent and his family as they visit a mysterious and haunted mansion that they are trying to sell. The film drew inspiration from the ride’s iconic characters and visuals, and sought to bring them to life on the big screen.
The Haunted Mansion remains a beloved part of the Disney canon, and its continued popularity is a testament to its enduring appeal. From its origins as a spooky walk-through exhibit to its status as a global theme park attraction and film franchise, the Haunted Mansion continues to delight and frighten audiences of all ages.
this Haunted Mansion looks like it’s gonna be epic. With a star studded cast including LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Chase W. Dillon and Dan Levy, with Jamie Lee Curtis and Jared Leto as The Hatbox Ghost, it looks like they have finally made it into a compelling and interesting story.
We will definitely look out for this one when it hits theaters. It looks like they pulled it together into a coherent story and I am really looking forward to seeing how this one fares.
