We’ve been sharing with you for a while now about the upcoming release of the Muppets’ first-ever Halloween special, Muppets Haunted Mansion, set to make its Disney+ debut this Friday, October 8. And today, we’re excited to share the new movie’s official clip!
The only thing spooky about this clip is that it doesn’t really give us anything to go on–nothing new. Actually, nothing period. Take a look:
The Muppets’ take on the Haunted Mansion tells the story of the incomparable Gonzo the Great. He never shies away from a dare; he’s never too scared to take a risk, and he’s always up to prove Gonzo the Great even Gonzo the Greater!
But this adventure might be his breaking point.
All he has to do is spend one night in the Haunted Mansion. Just. One. Night. But if you’ve seen the Disney film, Haunted Mansion, or if you’ve been brave enough to step inside the Haunted Mansion attractions at Disneyland or Walt Disney World, you know that it’s not for the faint of heart, and we’re not sure if Gonzo will be up for the challenge.
He doesn’t go it alone, however. Pepe the Prawn is his wingman in the movie, and of course, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie the Bear, and the rest of the Muppets gang stars in the spooky special set to begin streaming on Friday.
The Muppets invited several of their best pals to play roles in the movie as well. As with other Muppets movies, this movie is cameo-heavy and includes appearances by the late Ed Asner, Imagineer Kim Irvine, Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, John Stamos, Craig Robinson, Skai Jackson, and others will have roles in the movie.
Yvette Nicole Brown plays the part of the Hearse Driver, and Taraji P. Henson is the Bride (Yes, we mean a Constance Hatchaway-esque attic bride). Muppets Haunted Mansion will also feature Will Arnett as the Ghost Host.
