As we head into the weekend, we wanted to let Disney Parks Blog readers know about several fun stop-motion animated on-air promos set in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion debuting on Disney XD beginning this Saturday.

Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney XD and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios worked together to create three new promos that feature Disney characters from “DuckTales,” “Big Hero 6 The Series” and “Star vs. The Forces of Evil.” All of the Disney characters will have their own unique “haunted” adventures hosted by Haunted Mansion ghosts!

Here’s a first look at one of the shorts you’ll be seeing on Disney XD:

In the videos, Haunted Mansion fans will recognize the iconic music and sound effects from our popular theme park attraction. And there’s more to see, including:

  • The Hatbox Ghost
  • Ezra, one of the Hitchhiking Ghosts
  • The tombstone tribute for Marc Davis – Disney Legend – whose designs were used as inspiration for the original Haunted Mansion attraction
  • The infamous Phantom Five singing busts
  • The “Dear George” tombstone from the stretch room
  • The trowel ghost arm, inspired by Davis’ original concept art
  • The Tomb Sweet Tomb needlepoint picture frame
  • The candelabra in the endless hallway
  • Replicas of the doors, door handles, light fixtures and wallpaper

Keep an eye out for these videos beginning this weekend on Disney XD.
