Happy Haunts have received your sympathetic vibrations, and in celebration of this year’s Halfway to Halloween, they have materialized….the official logo for the new ‘Haunted Mansion’ film.
Walt Disney Pictures’ “Haunted Mansion,” is based on Disney’s classic theme parks attraction and starring a star-studded ensemble cast that includes LaKeith Stanfield “Knives Out,” Tiffany Haddish “Bad Trip,” Owen Wilson Marvel’s “Loki,” Danny DeVito “Jumanji: The Next Level,” Rosario Dawson “Zombieland: Double Tap” and Chase Dillon “The Underground Railroad.” The film was directed by Justin Simien “Bad Hair,” “Dear White People” and produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich “Aladdin.” Nick Reynolds “Easter Sunday” and Tom Peitzman “The Lion King” are the executive producers.
In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Dillon), looking to start a new life, move into a strangely affordable mansion in New Orleans, only to discover that the place is much more than they bargained for. Desperate for help, they contact a priest (Wilson), who, in turn, enlists the aid of a widowed scientist-turned failed-paranormal expert (Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Haddish) and a crotchety historian (DeVito).
Haunted Mansion will be released in theaters March 10, 2023.
Why is Disney trying to destroy the Haunted Mansion? First the Eddie Murphy movie and now this embarrassment. Del Toro was trying for years to work with Disney to make the quintessential Haunted Mansion movie, but no wonder he gave up if this is what they green lit. They obviously don’t value or understand the magnificence of what they have and are merely trying to prostitute it for a quick buck.
I take to mean the Benicio del Toro version is…dead?
This is a dream come true. I have been hoping for a Haunted Mansion remake since… well, since the first one. Which is a shame, because 50% of the original plot was amazing. But the parts that weren’t great were REALLY not great.
I cannot wait to see this new cast handle a new challenge. Every Haunted Mansion is unique. And I’m so excited!
Please stop these business school drop outs trying to exploit nostalgic rides by turning them into movie franchises that will then feed back into the unimaginative insertion of celebrities into rides (that operated perfectly without them). What s sad state of affairs with we see committees surrendering creativity to simplistic mechanical business processes.
NOOOOO! Not another Disney Haunted Mansion movie! WHY!? I don’t like the first Disney Haunted Mansion movie with Eddie Murphy. I suppose it’s scary than funny. If it’s funny and scary then I’ll try to watch it. Thank’s a lot Disney.
I would have preferred the film dealt with Master Gracey, Madame Leota and the bride in the attic with her many husbands. Plot in this film seems lame.
I’m still surprised on how that last comment got posted without any troube (and I thought Owens was great in “Midnight in Paris”). As for this film, will they learned from the problems from the past feautre film from 19(!) years earlier?
ANDDDDDDDDDDDDD that fast they lost me no thanks for Tiffany Haddish or Owen Wilson. 🙄 Two voices I want nothing to do with ever…. Except I guess cars but even that was more than enough. Crazy how Disney can drop Johnny Depp for lies and false accusations but can allow someone with such a foul mouth as Tiffany Haddish to be added to the roster.. she isn’t even funny. There are plenty of funny female comedians they could have chosen. Boo the cast is a flop for me so I’ll pass. It’s sad though because I LOVE Haunted Mansion.
