Disney has already created a Haunted Mansion movie in 2003 starring Eddie Murphy, but they are at it again with a new movie about the famous Disney ride coming from The Walt Disney Studios.
Above is the first preview released from the movie, the Haunted Mansion logo artwork.
The new movie will be directed by Guillermo del Toro and again will be based on the Haunted Mansion ride, which debuted in August 1969 at the Disneyland park. The ride also opened at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in 1971 and at Tokyo Disneyland in 1983.
Guillermo spilled some details about the movie at the Comic-Con, saying:
I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of my own adaptation of the original theme park attraction Walt envisioned and that remains- for me- the most desirable piece of real estate in the whole world!
Rich Ross, the Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, added:
Millions of people from around the world visit The Haunted Mansion each year, but no one has ever had a tour guide like Guillermo del Toro. Guillermo is one of the most gifted and innovative filmmakers working today and he is going to take audiences on a visually-thrilling journey like they’ve never experienced before.
We’ll let you know when more details about the new Haunted Mansion movie are released.
