Fans of horror and comedy should view the most recent Walt Disney “Haunted Mansion” trailer. It has a spooky aura that will undoubtedly frighten and amuse spectators from all around the world. The story’s earlier version, which was released in 2003, focused on the lives of two realtors who were trapped with their kids in a haunted home. The new movie’s perspective and storyline will differ slightly from the ones in the first movie.
The life of a mother who shares a home with her nine-year-old kid will be the subject of “The Haunted Mansion” in 2023. She makes the decision to relocate to this estate in New Orleans because it is affordable for them, and she wants a new beginning in her life. They bravely enter the creepy building to be welcomed by the ghosts loitering around.
After a few days, the family realizes that their new home is rife with paranormal activities. They plan to leave the house. As a result the mother seeks assistance from experts who deal with spirits. Owen Wilson, in the role of priest, helps the mother find other people who could help her stay in the same house. Moreover, a ghost guide, historian, and psychic are also present.
Justin Simien, who also directed “Dear White People,” “Queer for Fear,” and other movies, is in charge of directing this one. “The Haunted Mansion” is particularly dear to the director because he once worked at Disneyland. He admitted to having the best summer jobs and wanting to ride the Haunted Mansion in an interview with Variety. He was, therefore, familiar with the location’s specifics and made extensive use of them in the movie.
Also, there are a few allusions to the Disneyland ride, including Hatbox Ghost. Jared Leto (Fight Club), who will be seen as a Hatbox ghost whose head disappears and then reappears, is the hat. This concept was present in Disneyland in the 1960s, removed later, and again added in 2015.
Release Date And Production
The film’s concept was developed in 2010, and many famous names, including Ryan Gosling (Notebook), were attached to the project. There were several modifications made to the project, and new characters and actors were added to the cast.

Moreover, there is LaKeith Stanfield, who plays the role of Ben Mathias in the film. He is an expert in the field of paranormal activity and will guide the family in dealing with the ghosts living in the mansion.
Furthermore, Jamie Lee Curtis from “Halloween” and “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” will be seen as Madame Leota. Also, the viewers will see Jared Leto from “How to Make an American Quilt” in the film as a ghost.

Trailer And Plot
A single mother decides to relocate to a New Orleans suburb when she can no longer afford to keep her son with her in the city. She is pleased to have discovered affordable housing in the form of an antique mansion. The dusty old building with spider webs all over and portraits that appear to be moving individuals may be seen in the trailer’s video clip. Although it is eerie and terrifying, the family decides to stay and seek assistance from experts. The mother, Rosario, is a brave lady who will do anything to survive poverty. She dares to live in a house filled with spirits and ghosts to save money.
With its many bends and twists and horror-infused aspects, the mansion is comparable to an amusement park roller coaster ride or reminds one of the “Alice in Wonderland” films.
The trailer is gorgeous and alluring, and it has undoubtedly piqued people’s curiosity about the movie. If the audiences enjoy and are satisfied with the plot and direction of the movie, it might become one of the biggest box office successes of 2023.
