Rosario Dawson Presents an Inside View of the ‘Haunted Mansion’ in Latest Clip

Haunted Mansion Box Office

Disney enthusiasts get a fresh perspective on how the Haunted Mansion attraction at Walt Disney World has served as the muse for the forthcoming movie adaptation. A fresh clip has been revealed by Walt Disney World, featuring Rosario Dawson, the star of Haunted Mansion, guiding a tour through the ride. In the clip, Dawson delineates which segments of the ride have found their way into the movie. The Haunted Mansion film is set to hit theaters on July 28.

The video showcases one of the ride’s key areas – the elongating room, glimpses of which can also be caught in the movie trailers. In this part of the attraction, guests are ushered into the stretching room prior to embarking on the actual ride. This room contains numerous portraits of individuals, which, as the room expands, unfold surprising elements about the portrayed individuals. The clip also puts the spotlight on Madame Leota, a character who will be portrayed by Jamie Lee Curtis in the movie. The role of Madame Leota was played by Jennifer Tilly in the 2003 rendition of The Haunted Mansion movie. The video also offers glimpses of some beloved ghost characters from the ride, including the hitchhiking spirits that materialize towards the climax of the ride.

Dawson brings to life the character Gabbie in the Haunted Mansion film. In the storyline, Gabbie, along with her son Travis (played by Chase W. Dillon), settles down in the mansion, only to uncover that their new dwelling is possessed by spirits. Gabbie solicits the aid of an eclectic group of characters to help her exorcise the unsolicited ghosts from her residence. This group comprises a tour guide (LaKeith Stanfield), a medium (Tiffany Haddish), a priest (Owen Wilson), and a university professor (Danny DeVito). The Hatbox Ghost, a character from the Disneyland version of the ride, will be played by Jared Leto in the film, directed by Justin Simien. Despite not being featured in the Walt Disney World rendition of the ride, plans are in place to introduce this character later this year.
