At the D23 Expo, Disney materialized some big surprises for fans of the upcoming live action HAUNTED MANSION. With an iconic entrance, Jamie Lee Curtis appeared in a Doom Buggy and was confirmed as Madame Leota. Additionally, director Justin Simien — who actually used to work at Disneyland — shared a sneak peek of the film exclusively with fans in attendance.
In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Rosario Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase 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 (Owen Wilson), who, in turn, enlists the aid of a widowed scientist-turned failed-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish) and a crotchety historian (Danny DeVito).
The film was directed by Justin Simien (“Bad Hair,” “Dear White People”) and produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich (“Aladdin.” Nick Reynolds “Easter Sunday”) and Tom Peitzman (“The Lion King”) are the executive producers.
