Rosario Dawson, Tiffany Haddish, Lakeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, and Danny DeVito feature in Justin Simien’s upcoming supernatural horror-comedy Haunted Mansion, which he directed from a script by Katie Dippold.

Haunted Mansion About What?
Gabbie and her 9-year-old son move into a suspiciously priced New Orleans house, only to learn that the place is considerably more than they paid for. Desperate, they call a priest who in turn enlists the services of a widowed scientist who has since become a failed paranormal expert, a French Quarter psychic, and a crooked history professor.
Cast Of Haunted Mansion
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia alum Danny DeVito, Academy Award contender LaKeith Stanfield, Girls Trip alum Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, and Rosario Dawson have all signed on for prominent parts in the upcoming reboot of the story of ghosts and ghouls (Briarpatch). Because the company is withholding information about the characters’ backstories, we have no idea who any of the actors playing them will be. There is only one exception: DeVito, who has been confirmed to be taking on the role of a grumpy professor.
Disney’s ‘HAUNTED MANSION’ film, starring Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Tiffany Haddish, Lakeith Stanfield and Danny DeVito, will release on March 10, 2023.

The plot of Haunted Mansion is as as mysterious as the characters who inhabit it. A mother and son are said to be the focus of the film so far. The couple is looking for a new place to live and finds themselves drawn to the ancient, creepy home. Mother and son encounter long-dead apparitions after quickly understanding the building harbours ancient secrets and enigmas.
Haunted Mansion Development
Guillermo del Toro was tapped to write and produce a revival of The Haunted Mansion for Walt Disney Pictures in July of 2010. As Del Toro has emphasised, the film will not take place in a real-world setting, but will instead take place in a more elevated reality. He stated the movie would be “horror and fun at the same time, but the scary will be scary,” and that the Hatbox Ghost would be a major character.
Jason Surrell, a Walt Disney World Imagineer, was hired as a creative consultant in June 2011. Walt Disney Studios received the final version of the script from del Toro in August 2012, which was intended for a PG-13 rating. Del Toro said in July 2013 that he would no longer be directing the film but would continue to work on it as a co-writer and producer.
D.V. DeVincentis, who would later rewrite the script, had been engaged to rewrite the film’s script in April 2015. Brigham Taylor was hired as an additional producer in September 2016.
Del Toro’s original script had been deemed too terrifying for family audiences, therefore Katie Dippold was hired to create a new screenplay for the picture in August 2020. Two new producers were brought in: Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich. Walt Disney Pictures and Rideback Pictures will work together on the project as a joint venture. In April 2021, Justin Simien began discussions to make the picture and was officially confirmed as director by July 2021.
Danny DeVito joins the ensemble as the film’s director and one of the film’s stars. Tiffany Haddish and Lakeith Stanfield also star
Filming Of Haunted Mansion
From mid-October 2021 until late February 2022, principal photography took place in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Atlanta, Georgia, respectively. A DUI arrest on January 14, 2022, while filming for the movie was still taking place in Georgia, landed Haddish in hot water.
Another piece of information we know about the film comes from one of the places where it was filmed. Atlanta and New Orleans have been the scene of recent shootings, which could be a clue to the location of the upcoming Disney Parks attraction. It isn’t clear if that implies more characters from the attraction will be included, but as we now have a release date, we may expect to hear about the feature more frequently.
On April 10, 2022, Kris Bowers is said to have composed the score.
Release Of Haunted Mansion
Disney has set the release date of Haunted Mansion for March 10, 2023. Untitled event film had previously been placed on hold by the studio.
Dungeons & Dragons is the only major studio release scheduled for that weekend, but it debuts the following weekend.

What Is The Inspiration For Disney’s Haunted Mansion?
The Shipley-Lydecker House in Baltimore, Maryland, shown in Decorative Art of Victoria’s Era, a book found in the Walt Disney Imagineering Information Research Center in Glendale, California, served as a major inspiration for the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.

Haunted Mansion Any New Updates
The second film will include a different cast of characters than the previous one. According to rumours, Tiffany Haddish and LaKeith Stanfield are in the cast, but Disney has yet to announce character details.
As reported by That Hashtag Show, fresh ghosts are being sought for the film. Under the name William, Gracey appears to have resurfaced as the ghost owner of the property. For those unfamiliar with 19th-century New Orleans, the Graceys are a rich Creole couple in their early 30s who are also “free people of colour.
This new data differs from that of the Graceys of 2003. To round out this cast of characters were The Mariner (an “underlying warmth,” per the article), The Bride (an “ethnic, Victorian woman who beheaded her husbands”), and the Dueling Ghost (an apparition). However, the character of Butler will be back.
Theme park movies are all the rage at Disney right now.
Making big-budget, theme park-themed movies is nothing new for the Walt Disney Company. Because of this, people aren’t surprised that the company has decided to reimagine a familiar classic.
Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightly are the most well-known characters in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The first film is based on the same-named attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, United States. Following the success of the swashbuckler film, Disney created four more.
The 2021 film Jungle Cruise is another Disney themed production. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starred alongside Emily Blunt in the film that opened in cinemas and on Disney+. The Adventureland-based film, on the other hand, saw an early release on digital platforms.
A new Haunted Mansion film has sparked speculation about whether other Disney attractions might be turned into movies. Disney can only make a decision based on the financial performance of its current film releases.
