This weekend, at the Destination D23 event in Orlando, Disney announced that its new film, “Haunted Mansion”, would be coming to Disney+, along with digital retailers, including Prime Video, Apple TV, and Vudu/Fandango on October 4th 2023. Today, Disney has revealed details on the physical media release, which will follow a couple of weeks later on October 17th 2023.
Inspired by the classic theme park attraction, Haunted Mansion tells the story of Gabbie (Rosario Dawson), a single mom, who discovers that the home she and her son share is haunted by irksome ghosts. Hoping to restore domestic tranquility, Gabbie recruits a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid the house of the supernatural squatters.
