Trailer Reaction - Disney's Haunted Mansion

Walt Disney Studios just released the trailer for the new Haunted Mansion movie, releasing in theaters on July 28, 2023, and it is ghoulishly amazing!  The Haunted Mansion isn't a new concept for Disney as the attraction is incredibly popular across Disney Parks and other Haunted Mansion movies have been made including one starring Eddie Murphy in 2003 and The Muppets Haunted Mansion in 2021, but I feel like this movie is going to strike a bit of a different chord after seeing the trailer.  Check it out below:

I first captured my thoughts in a quick Instagram post, but wanted to dive a bit deeper here.  First, let's look at the cast.  Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Dan Levy, Jamie Lee Curtis. . .I'm already in love with them!  I was also feeling some very Pirates of the Caribbean vibes when I watched the trailer.  I don't doubt that there will be some great laugh out loud moments in the film, but I'm also thinking that this is going to be a bit scarier than I originally thought.  My kids can get a little frightened at some of those jump scare moments in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and I can see the potential for some of those in this movie.

I'm so excited about this movie and can't wait to see it this summer.  Drop your thoughts about the trailer in the comments below!
