The new Walt Disney Studios movie Haunted Mansion, directed by Justin Simien, is set to scare audiences starting July 28, 2023. The movie, which stars actors including Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, Jared Leto, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Danny DeVito, is going to be an exciting new take on the Haunted Mansion story. Haunted Mansion will pull inspiration from the Disney Parks ride it is based on, which is an attraction surrounded by a lot of lore. Many die-hard Haunted Mansion fans were thrilled to see the new trailer, which was released yesterday. One fan even went as far as to break down every easter egg he could find in it!
Secrets in the ‘Haunted Mansion’ Trailer
Twitter user Brian Saeger (@SkywalkerBrian) describes himself as being “beyond obsessed with the famous attraction.” To celebrate the release of the trailer, Brian investigated every minute detail he could find in it. The result was an epic thread full of Haunted Mansion information.
Brians’s thread is full of exciting information on the movie and the ride. One of the coolest things he notices was the details in the Masions facade and with The Bride, Constance Hatchaway.
Now these next two shots we get a beautiful double whammy. We see two versions of The Bride (aka Constance Hatchaway). We see her portrait that is in the Attic of the HM. Next w/ a homage of the Beating Heart bride that was a version done in 2006. #DisneyWorld pic.twitter.com/hCBJSAl6WR

The new trailer has some gorgeous imagery already. The haunting yet beautiful look of the new film seems incredibly exciting. One of the prettiest shots of the trailer is one where we can see The Hatbox Ghost. Brian makes the connection that the green light in the shot could be a nod to the scrapped project that the Hatbox Ghost had in July of 2010.
Speaking of ghosts, Brian was also able to spot the Ghost Host right away. The portrait in the movie looks very similar to the portrait on the ride. The wallpaper even looks similar to the iconic wallpaper of the Haunted Mansion ride.
