Grim-smiling ghosts get ready to mingle once more!
Disney is releasing a new movie that was inspired by the venerable Disney World and Disneyland attraction twenty years after Eddie Murphy appeared in The Haunted Mansion. The film, billed as a “comically creepy adventure,” stars Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, LaKeith Stanfield, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jared Leto, among an all-star cast.
As a lifelong fan of the Haunted Mansion attraction, director Justin Simien said in a statement: “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.” Simien previously admitted that he used to ride the Haunted Mansion during breaks while working at Disneyland. For both new and devoted fans to enjoy, “Our team has worked tirelessly to create a scary, funny and cinematic otherworldly adventure!” Simien threw in. “I can’t wait for viewers to experience this iconic Disney attraction on the big screen.” Let’s see who will be part of this upcoming comedy movie.
Meet the cast of Haunted Mansion
A stellar cast performs in The Haunted Mansion. The actors include Rosario Dawson, LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Chase W. Dillon, Dan Levy, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jared Leto.
The official character descriptions are provided below:
Rosario Dawson as Gabbie
Rosario Dawson’s character, Gabbie, is a doctor and the mother of Travis, who is nine years old. She relocates to a surprisingly inexpensive mansion in New Orleans with her son. Over the years, Rosario Dawson has gotten her way into a number of well-known films and television programs. Dawson’s resume features high-profile projects, including recurring parts in the DC Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as musical roles, voiceovers, and action movies. In fact, Dawson plays Claire Temple in a couple Marvel Studios TV episodes and voices Wonder Woman in the DC Universe animated films.
Lakeith Stanfield as Ben
A priest asks Ben, a widowed physicist turned unsuccessful paranormal investigator, to assist Gabbie and Travis in purging the mansion of bad spirits.
Actor Lakeith Stanfield used a wild, beautifully batshit plan of action. He visited Iguana Vintage Clothing in Los Angeles, one of his favourites shops, and bought every wig they had. He then drove around Hollywood’s movie theatres purchasing movie tickets, hiding them behind the wigs outside the theatres.
Owen Wilson as Father Kent
Father Kent is a priest who works with historians, psychics, and scientists to help Travis and Gabbie get rid of the bad spirits.
Owen Wilson, the middle brother of actors Andrew and Luke, was born on November 18, 1968, in Dallas, Texas. Owen Wilson rapidly established himself as the youthful, endearing, and highly amusing leading man because to his floppy, puppy-dog blond hair, baby blue eyes, and crooked nose (caused by football).
The movie Haunted Mansion will be out in theatres on 28th July.
