‘Haunted Mansion’ Debuts a Spooky Official Trailer and New Poster
Disney’s two-minute official Haunted Mansion (the 2023 version) trailer reveals that death lurks behind every corner and the ghosts who populate this particular mansion have no intention of leaving. “There’s so many bad people in the world, haunt them!” suggests Owen Wilson’s character. Nope, that’s not going to happen, but points for trying.
The trailer provides a new sneak peek at Jared Leto as the Hatbox Ghost and of new Oscar-winner Jamie Lee Curtis as Madame Leota. Additional creepy ghosts, recognizable from the Disney ride that inspired the movie, pop in to creep out the mansion’s living inhabitants.
Eddie Murphy starred in Disney’s 2003’s theme park ride-inspired film. 2023’s Haunted Mansion features LaKeith Stanfield , Tiffany Haddish , Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson , Chase W. Dillon, and Dan Levy.
Justin Simien ( Dear White People , Bad Hair ) directs and Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich serve as producers. Nick Reynolds and Tom Peitzman executive produce.
“As a lifelong fan of the Haunted Mansion attraction, I’m beyond excited to share the teaser trailer for our new film adaptation featuring an incredible cast. Our team has worked tirelessly to create a scary, funny, and cinematic otherworldly adventure for both new and die-hard fans to enjoy! I can’t wait for audiences to experience this big screen version of the iconic Disney attraction,” said director Simien.
Haunted Mansion invites audiences to take a ride to the other side in theaters on July 28, 2023.
Haunted Mansion is about a woman and her son who enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters.

Haunted Mansion: Disney Releases First Teaser for Star-Studded Reboot

The footage offers a better look at the plot, which centers around a woman and her son as they enlist "a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters" — including the likes of the Black Widow Bride and the beloved Hatbox Ghost.

‘Haunted Mansion’ Poster – First Look at Disney’s New Movie Ahead of Trailer Debut Tomorrow
Disney’s new live action Haunted Mansion movie will be releasing in theaters on July 28, 2023 , and we’ve been promised that the official trailer debuts tomorrow, March 2nd.
While you wait, check out the trippy official poster for Haunted Mansion below!
Justin Simien ( Dear White People, Bad Hair ) is directing the new live action adaptation of the popular, long-running Disney theme park attraction that’s home to 999 haunts.
LaKeith Stanfield , Tiffany Haddish , Owen Wilson , Rosario Dawson , and Danny DeVito star, with Jamie Lee Curtis as Madame Leota and Jared Leto as the Hatbox Ghost.
Winona Ryder, Dan Levy , and Hasan Minhaj will also appear in the new movie.
“In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son ( Chase 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).”
The dark ride attraction, which launched in 1969 and is still going strong today at Disney parks, “sees theme park guests go inside a spooky and creepy manor that has a wide array of supernatural frights. It also features a graveyard’s worth of characters.” The most popular characters include Hatbox Ghost, Madame Leota, The Phantom and the Hitchhiking Ghosts.
Rob Minkoff directed the feature film The Haunted Mansion back in 2003, the first big screen adaptation of the ride. Eddie Murphy starred in the film. More recently, Guillermo del Toro was attached to adapt the ride for a brand new movie. Alas, it never came to life.
Katie Dippold ( Ghostbusters 2016) is writing the new movie’s script for Disney.
Writer in the horror community since 2008. Editor in Chief of Bloody Disgusting. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has four awesome cats. Still plays with toys.

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Frankenstein’ Adds Christoph Waltz to Cast
Guillermo del Toro is working on his own adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for Netflix with an all-star cast. Collider reports today that del Toro confirms actor Christoph Waltz ( Inglorious Basterds , Alita: Battle Angel) has joined the lineup.
The outlet reports that del Toro confirmed the casting news at the 10th-anniversary screening of Pacific Rim , where the filmmaker told audiences, “I’m doing Frankenstein . We’re working on it. We start shooting in February, and it’s a movie I have been wanting to do for 50 years since I saw the first Frankenstein . I had an epiphany, and it’s basically a movie that required a lot of growth and a lot of tools that I couldn’t have done 10 years ago. Now I’m brave or crazy enough or something, and we’re gonna tackle it. It’s Oscar Isaac, Andrew Garfield, Christoph Waltz, Mia Goth, and we’re working on it.”
“He’ll reunite with renowned composer and frequent collaborator Alexandre Desplat for the score and also produce with another usual partner of his Gary Ungar . With a team and cast coming together, everything is falling into place for the highly-anticipated project to begin filming in February,” Collider also reported.
Mia Goth ( Pearl ), Oscar Isaac (“Moon Knight”), and Andrew Garfield ( The Amazing Spider-Man ) were previously rumored to have joined this project back in March, though Netflix declined to comment or confirm the casting news.
The acclaimed filmmaker previously collaborated with Waltz on his stop-motion adaptation of Pinocchio , where Waltz voiced the evil showman Count Volupe.
Del Toro is writing and directing Frankenstein for Netflix, with his specific approach completely under wraps at this time.
Guillermo del Toro won four Academy Awards for The Shape of Water in 2018, essentially giving his unique, romantic spin on the Creature from the Black Lagoon . With Frankenstein up next, he’s building his very own army of Universal Monsters. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the project.

- Haunted Mansion is due out in theaters on July 28th, 2023.

Prepare to step back into the Haunted Mansion, foolish mortals!
Based on Walt Disney's theme park attraction of the same name, Walt Disney Pictures is bringing the spooky home to life with an upcoming film .
The project marks the second theatrical film adaptation of the ride, following 2003's The Haunted Mansion starring Eddie Murphy.
The upcoming adaptation has been a long time coming, with plans for the project first announced in 2010, when Guillermo del Toro was attached to write and produce and Ryan Gosling was in negotiations to star.
Since then, there have been many changes and developments, including many stars added to the cast and a teaser trailer released in March 2023.
From what the film will be about to the release date, here's everything to know about Haunted Mansion .
Who is starring in Haunted Mansion ?
The upcoming movie has a star-studded cast , including Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson, LaKeith Stanfield, and Tiffany Haddish .

During Disney's D23 Expo in September 2022, it was also announced that Winona Ryder, Dan Levy and Hasan Minaj would be part of the cast.
What will Haunted Mansion be about?
While the original 2003 film revolved around two real estate agents who find themselves trapped in the Haunted Mansion with their two children, the new movie takes a slightly different approach.
Instead, the film revolves around a single mother (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son who move into a New Orleans mansion hoping for a fresh start. However, they quickly learn that the home is not what it appears to be and they enlist the help of several different figures, including a paranormal tour guide (Stanfield), a psychic (Haddish), a priest (Wilson) and a historian (DeVito).
Who is directing Haunted Mansion ?
The film is being helmed by Justin Simien, best known for directing the 2014 film Dear White People , which was later adapted into the Netflix series of the same name.
Simien has a personal connection to the Haunted Mansion: He used to work at Disneyland !
"I used to work here! I actually worked at Disneyland, y'all," Simien said during D23, per Variety. "It was the best summer job I ever had. I used to ride the Haunted Mansion on breaks."
As a result, he made sure to include lots of insider nods to the ride and the park within the film, saying: "There was something about that ride that I felt was there in the script. I wanted to be sure all the Easter eggs are there because I'm a nerd."
When did filming for Haunted Mansion take place?
Principal photography for the film took place in New Orleans, Louisiana and Atlanta, Georgia from October 2021 to February 2022.
Is there a poster for Haunted Mansion ?
The first look at the poster was released on March 1, which shows a young boy looking down the hallway of the Haunted Mansion.
The following day, another poster was revealed, showing a closer look at the cast in character.
Is there a trailer for Haunted Mansion ?
On March 2, Disney shared the first teaser trailer for the film , which includes several nods to the original ride, including the stretching room and Constance Hatchaway, aka The Black Widow Bride.
When will Haunted Mansion be released?
The film is slated to hit theaters on July 28, 2023.

Haunted Mansion Will Work Hard Not to Repeat the Mistakes of the Past
As many will no doubt already know, this is not the first time that Walt Disney Studios has attempted to transform the Haunted Mansion ride into a cinematic classic. This first effort was tried twenty years ago and stars comedic legend Eddie Murphy alongside the likes of Terence Stamp, Wallace Shawn, Marsha Thomason, and Jennifer Tilly. The movie, titled The Haunted Mansion , again finds a group trapped inside the titular spooky abode. Sadly, the critical response was far more terrifying than the movie, and currently sits at a rotten 14% on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
But Haunted Mansion director Justin Simien is not afraid. Far from it, in fact. The filmmaker has looked to the original attempt for what not to do . As he explains, “[We looked at Eddie Murphy’s Haunted Mansion for how we could] go awry. We got down to the point where we were obsessing over the angle you first see the mansion when you walk onto the ride in Disneyland, when we see it through the gates and we see the pillars. That angle has to hit. That's how specific we were. When you first glide through the dining hall and you see the waltzing dancers, that angle had to be right, because that's the one where you gasp on the ride.”
Haunted Mansion is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 28, 2023, by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Haunted mansion's disney+ release date confirmed after box office bomb.
At Destination D23, Disney unveils the official Disney+ streaming release date for Haunted Mansion, starring Rosario Dawson and LaKeith Stanfield.
- Haunted Mansion, the new adaptation of the iconic Disney Parks attraction, will be streaming on Disney+ starting October 4th.
- The physical media release of Haunted Mansion will be available later in October.
- The movie follows a mother and son who face spooky challenges when they move into a haunted house.
Haunted Mansion now has an official Disney+ streaming release date. The movie, which is a new adaptation of the iconic Disney Parks attraction of the same name, premiered in theaters on July 28. It follows a mother (Rosario Dawson) and son (Chase W. Dillon) who move into an elegant home that has fallen into disrepair, only to find their hopes of opening a bed and breakfast dashed by the fact that it's packed with grim, grinning ghosts. The Haunted Mansion cast also includes LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Dan Levy, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jared Leto.
Screen Rant was in attendance at the Disney event Destination D23, which is currently taking place at the Walt Disney World Resort and had some exciting news to share.
A month and a half after its premiere, the Haunted Mansion streaming release date has been revealed. The family-friendly horror-comedy will debut on Disney+ on October 4, with a physical media release to follow later in the month, just in time for Halloween.
This Streaming Release Could Turn Haunted Mansion Around
This streaming release could potentially do a lot to reverse the ill fortunes of the Haunted Mansion box office. The movie's theatrical release date presented it with major challenges, including the fact that it was one of the first major movies to have its premiere directly impacted by the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. The Haunted Mansion cast joined their fellow union members in refraining from promoting struck projects while fighting for fair pay. It was also released just one week after the blockbuster duo Barbie and Oppenheimer , which were continuing to dominate the charts.
Because of this, the Haunted Mansion box office run has been considered an enormous flop. Worldwide, the movie has grossed $101.3 million, which isn't an inconsiderable amount. However, its production budget of roughly $150 million means that the movie needed to gross somewhere north of $300 million just to break even.
It would be quite difficult for Haunted Mansion to recoup that amount of money via a streaming release. However, Disney+ has been responsible for boosting the fortunes of movies before, as proven by Encanto . The 2021 animated movie grossed a solid $256 million in theaters, but didn't become a major word-of-mouth hit until streaming, at which point the song "We Don't Talk About Bruno" went viral.

The Walt Disney Company has become no stranger to adapting its original attractions into feature films. Certainly, the most well-known and successful example is the Pirates of the Caribbean series, which had a grand total of five films and created a modern pop culture icon with Captain Jack Sparrow. Since then, Disney has always been looking to make their theme park attractions into feature films, with examples including The Country Bears (2002), Tomorrowland (2015), and Jungle Cruise (2021). It's a concept that's showing no signs of stopping, with Hawkeye (2021) directors Bert & Bertie set to helm a film based on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The one ride at Walt Disney parks that should be a no-brainer to adapt though is the Haunted Mansion . With its iconic visuals and surprisingly deep lore, it should be the perfect candidate for a feature film, and Disney did try to capitalize on the popular attraction nearly two decades ago with 2003's The Haunted Mansion , starring Eddie Murphy . With a comedian like Murphy in the lead role, you could probably imagine that his take on the ride was very comedic. Now it's true that the ride has always had a very on-the-nose sense of humor, but the film adaptation lacked the creepy charm of the ride and leaned too heavily on the jokes, not to mention iconic characters like the Hat Box Ghost and the Black Widow Bride were nowhere to be found. Director Justin Simien , the filmmaker behind Dear White People (2014) and a former Disneyland cast member, looks to make his own cinematic adaption of the beloved attraction, complete with a prestigious number of creatives and an absolutely star-studded cast on board. From what was shown at their presence at 2022's D23 Expo, it's looking to be an incredibly promising adventure-horror hybrid. To get the scoop on the information that was shared at D23 behind closed doors as well as everything else we know so far, simply continue to read below. Editor's Note: This article was last updated on July 23.
The spirits of the Haunted Mansion are set to receive your sympathetic vibrations on July 28, 2023 . The movie was originally scheduled to release on March 10, 2023, then moved to August 11, 2023, and finally brought up to its present date. Tickets for the movie are now on sale so grab yours as soon as you can!

At San Diego Comic-Con 2023, Collider's editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub hosted a panel entitled "Directors on Directing" that featured Haunted Mansion 's Justin Simien, appearing alongside directors Louis Leterrier ( Fast X ), Gareth Edwards ( Rogue One ). During that panel, we got the chance to bring you your first look at an exclusive clip showing LaKeith Stanfield 's character entering the iconic Stretching Room. See it in the player above and expand this section to see all the other trailers and clips released so far for Haunted Mansion.
Fans of the legendary attraction were treated to the first public look at Haunted Mansion when the spooky teaser trailer premiered on March 2nd . The footage opens up with the character of Gabbie ( Rosario Dawson ) and her young son Travis ( Chase W. Dillon ) as they enter their new home which of course is the titular Haunted Mansion. It doesn't take long for them to realize that the home is infested with restless ghouls, leading to them contacting an ambitious priest ( Owen Wilson ), a down-on-his-luck tour guide (LaKeith Stanfield), and a wise medium ( Tiffany Haddish ) to uncover the mystery behind the unsettling abode. Also seen in the trailer are some recognizable ghosts from the ride, such as the Black Widow Bride and the Hat Box Ghost ( Jared Leto ).
More recently, we got a new teaser for Haunted Mansion on June 8 that shows LaKeith Stanfield's Ben being introduced to the mansion, then moving on to scenes of various guests being spooked out by the mansion's ghostly residents.
Since tickets went on sale, Disney has released a steady stream of clips from Haunted Mansion and we also got a behind-the-scenes featurette featuring the director and cast. See it below:
A new trailer for Haunted Mansion was released on July 18, with a narration from Gabby that unfolds the spookiness of moving into the mansion. It then moves on to show us more of the cast, including a new look at the Hat-Box Ghost. Here it is:
Plot details are pretty thin and the trailer didn't do much to elaborate further on the general plot, but an official synopsis shed a bit more light on the film's story:
"A single mom named Gabbie hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest, and a historian to help exorcise their newly bought mansion; after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts."
We already know that Gabbie will be played by Rosario Dawson ( Ahsoka ), LaKeith Stanfield's ( Sorry to Bother You ) Ben will be the tour guide and Owen Wilson's ( Loki ) Kent will be the priest, and we assume that Tiffany Haddish's Harriet is the psychic and Danny DeVito's unnamed professor is the historian.
As for the ghosts who are set to appear, we do know that the Hatbox Ghost will almost certainly be appearing. An infamous part of the attraction that only returned to the ride somewhat recently, Hatbox Ghost was heavily implied at the event to be played by Jared Leto ( Morbius ). We also know that the Bride will also be a part of the film, and she is a character that has quite the backstory. Most of the "happy haunts" in the Haunted Mansion are just that; happy. They might give people a good scare sometimes, but overall they're not malicious or cruel...except the Bride. Originally named Constance Hatchaway, it's heavily insinuated that she killed her husband (or husbands) and now stalks the mansion looking for her next victim. Both these infamous ghosts would be excellent choices for the main villain.

Initially, horror and practical effects legend and the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind The Shape of Water (2017), Guillermo Del Toro . Like many of Del Toro's projects, this one just wasn't meant to be for the accomplished writer/director, but Justin Simien is a worthy replacement. Simien has made a name for himself as one of the biggest rising stars in storytelling today, being involved with both the hugely successful 2014 Dear White People film and the critically acclaimed Netflix series of the same name. Simien is also set to have a long history with Disney, as he's also become attached to the upcoming Lando series.
Even though he's no longer directing the project, Del Toro is still credited with writing the screenplay for the film along with D. V. DeVincentis ( High Fidelity ) and Katie Dippold ( The Heat ) also co-writing. This is good news for those wishing for Del Toro's directorial vision of the film as this likely means many of his ideas will make their way into the film. Del Toro will also be involved as executive producer as well. The rest of the ghostly crew consists of composer Kris Bowers ( King Richard ), cinematographer Jeffery Waldron ( Little Fires Everywhere ), editor Phillip J. Bartell ( Bad Hair ), production designer Darren Gilford ( TRON: Legacy ), and costume designer Jeffery Kurland ( Collateral ).
We've already mentioned most of the major leading characters set to appear, including LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Tiffany Haddish, and Jared Leto. Leto, who again is most likely playing the Hat Box Ghost, was one of many new casting revelations revealed at D23. The remaining cast members include Winona Ryder ( Beetlejuice ), Dan Levy ( Schitt's Creek ), Hasan Minhaj ( The Daily Show ) as a sketch artist, and finally, Jamie Lee Curtis ( Halloween Ends ), who made a grand entrance at the Studio Showcase in her very own "Doom Buggy". Curtis will be playing Madame Leota.
Exclusive Haunted Mansion Deleted Scene Shows Owen Wilson Try To Make a Deal
By Spencer Legacy
ComingSoon is debuting an exclusive Haunted Mansion deleted scene from the special features of the Disney live-action supernatural horror comedy’s digital release. The film is set to debut digitally and on Disney+ on Wednesday, October 4 and on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K on Tuesday, October 17.
What is Haunted Mansion about?
“Inspired by the classic theme park attraction, Haunted Mansion is about a woman and her son who enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters,” says the logline.
The clip shows Owen Wilson ‘s Father Kent as he tries to convince Rosario Dawson ‘s Gabbie that the haunted house can be monetized, with him taking a decent cut.
Check out the exclusive Haunted Mansion deleted scene below ( watch more trailers ):
Haunted Mansion is directed by Justin Simien (Dear White People) from a screenplay written by Katie Dippold (Parks and Recreation). The film stars LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta), Tiffany Haddish (Girls’ Trip), Owen Wilson (Loki), Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian), and Danny DeVito (Batman Returns), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween movies), and Jared Leto (Morbius). It is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich (Aladdin) of Rideback, with Nick Reynolds and Tom Peitzman as executive producers.

Trailer, Poster and Images for ‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’ Disney+ Special
Two of Disney’s most iconic brands, the Muppets and The Haunted Mansion, come together for a Halloween special this October on Disney+! Muppets Haunted Mansion features the beloved Muppets crew visiting the Haunted Mansion, inspired by the iconic theme park attraction, and also stars Yvette Nicole Brown, Will Arnett, Darren Cross and Taraji P. Henson.
Today, Disney released a new trailer, a poster and images for the upcoming special and I certainly appreciate the talented and diverse cast involved. Everyone loves the Muppets, and The Haunted Mansion is one of the most well known attractions in theme park history so this is a great pairing. I have to admit that there’s something special about visiting The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland during Halloween, when all the holiday decorations go up. In the newly released trailer for Muppets Haunted Mansion , you can see several scenes taken directly from the attraction, and it’s fun to see the Muppets crew be a part of that.
Check out the trailer and images below. Muppets Haunted Mansion premieres on Disney+ on October 8th!
