Disney invites brave souls to venture into the eerie realm of the ‘Haunted Mansion’ in a thrilling new featurette. This summer, the beloved Disney ride makes a chilling return to the silver screen with the release of the Haunted Mansion film. As excitement for the impending release continues to mount, Walt Disney Studios unveils an exciting behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of the movie, showcasing fresh footage and capturing the essence of the production.

Director Justin Simien shares his vision for Haunted Mansion, stating, “I aimed to bring the ride’s essence to life onscreen. We wanted to preserve the elements that fans cherish while expanding the universe around them.” The featurette unveils bone-chilling scenes featuring the film’s spectral entities, including Jared Leto as the enigmatic Hatbox Ghost. With a talented cast on board, the movie promises to be a remarkable adaptation of the ride. Simien emphasizes, “The ensemble is the true heart of this film.”


Previously, the ride inspired a film in 2003, starring Eddie Murphy, targeting a family-friendly audience. However, the latest incarnation of this timeless attraction sets its sights on mature viewers with a PG-13 rating, delivering intense scares and a darker aesthetic. LaKeith Stanfield comments on the film’s tone, stating, “It’s a unique story that balances moments of levity and fun with plenty of frights.” Whether the movie will honor the ride as a worthy adaptation remains to be seen. Yet, judging by the gripping footage revealed thus far, audiences are in for a spine-tingling cinematic experience this summer.
