After many years of waiting, start, restarts, and more rumors than the amount of “Happy Haunts” that reside at the Haunted Mansion, Disney Parks Blog has announced that the second film based on the popular attraction will arrive on March 10, 2023.
As previously announced, the Justin Simien film will star LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, and Chase Dillon.
New plot details begin with “…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).”
A new Haunted Mansion logo has also materialized, which you can peruse below.
