Two of Disney’s most iconic brands, the Muppets and The Haunted Mansion, come together for a Halloween special this October on Disney+! Muppets Haunted Mansion features the beloved Muppets crew visiting the Haunted Mansion, inspired by the iconic theme park attraction, and also stars Yvette Nicole Brown, Will Arnett, Darren Cross and Taraji P. Henson.
Today, Disney released a new trailer, a poster and images for the upcoming special and I certainly appreciate the talented and diverse cast involved. Everyone loves the Muppets, and The Haunted Mansion is one of the most well known attractions in theme park history so this is a great pairing. I have to admit that there’s something special about visiting The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland during Halloween, when all the holiday decorations go up. In the newly released trailer for Muppets Haunted Mansion, you can see several scenes taken directly from the attraction, and it’s fun to see the Muppets crew be a part of that.
Check out the trailer and images below. Muppets Haunted Mansion premieres on Disney+ on October 8th!
