The New Haunted Mansion movie is coming. Here is what we know about the cast so far.
The Haunted Mansion Movie
Welcome, Foolish Mortals! You may recall that back in 2020, we found out that Disney had plans for a new live action Haunted Mansion Movie.
We suspected that the Kenny the Pirate Crew would find this interesting. After all, you declared your undying devotion to the The Haunted Mansion when you deemed it the champion our KtP Crew FAVORITE Attraction tournament. You can reminisce on the final bracket here.
Now, we also know some more information about the mortals who will be stepping into ghostly shoes to portray happy haunts. Jarod Leto is playing the Hat-Box Ghost. Additionally, Jamie Lee Curtis will play Madame Leota.
We also know that joining them will be plenty of other stars including Owen Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, Rosario Dawson, and Danny DeVito!
What’s the Story?
The general idea surrounding the new movie is that a single mom has moved into a new home only to find it inhabited by Happy Haunts! So, naturally, she hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest, and a historian to help rid her mansion of the ghostly residents (as one does).
Disney previously set a release date for the film. You can tentatively mark your calendars for March 10, 2023 if you want to catch it on opening day.
Unlike many films of late that have come straight to Disney+ for streaming or that were released on the platform behind paywalls, Haunted Mansion will have a theatrical release! This is great news for those who are fans of heading to the theatre to consume cinema (and movie popcorn).
