Disney has announced that it has pulled forward the release of the upcoming “Haunted Mansion” film. Originally, the film was due to be released on March 10th, 2023, but was delayed until August 11th, 2023, but now with “The Marvels” being delayed until November, “The Haunted Mansion” will take its spot for July 28th 2023.

It is being directed by Justin Simien and stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Owen Wilson, Jared Leto, Winona Ryder, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Dan Levy, LaKeith Stanfield, and Tiffany Haddish.

Inspired by the classic Disney parks attraction, the mysterious adventure follows 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).

With the shift in the release schedule, the film now gets the majority of the summer to pull in families and hopefully recapture the magic of “Pirates Of The Caribbean” films, which were also inspired by a Disney theme park attraction.

This isn’t the first time Disney has tried turning the “Haunted Mansion” Disney attraction into a film, as it previously released a movie with Eddie Murphy.

The good news, with the film coming out a little earlier, hopefully, with a longer theatrical run for a few months, it could arrive on Disney+ in time for Halloween.
