In celebration of this year’s Halfway to Halloween, Disney has shared the official logo for the new ‘Haunted Mansion’ film.



Walt Disney Pictures’ Haunted Mansion, is based on Disney’s classic theme parks attraction, and starring a star-studded ensemble cast that includes LaKeith Stanfield of Knives Out, Tiffany Haddish from Bad Trip, Owen Wilson of Marvel’s Loki, Danny DeVito of Jumanji: The Next Level, Rosario Dawson from Zombieland: Double Tap, and Chase Dillon of The Underground Railroad. The film was directed by Justin Simien (Bad Hair, Dear White People), and produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Aladdin. Nick Reynolds (Easter Sunday) and Tom Peitzman (The Lion King) are the executive producers.


In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (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).


Haunted Mansion will be released in theaters March 10, 2023.
