Disney TV Animation just announced that they are planning to create an animated special based on one of the most beloved Disney rides – The Haunted Mansion. In honor of the 45th anniversary original Haunted Mansion’s opening in Disneyland, the 999 happy haunts of the iconic ride will be animated for fan’s viewing pleasure.
The Haunted Mansion is one of our favorite rides. The tightrope walker / alligator girl is my favorite character in all the rides in Disney, so I am eager to see her in the special. Although we were very disappointed by the live-action movie featuring Eddie Murphy, we are hopeful that the Hitchhiking Ghosts and other beloved characters are given a great story. No release date has been set, but we eagerly await it.
