Disney+ announced earlier this week that the “Muppets Haunted Mansion” Halloween special will premiere on Friday, October 8th during their Hallowstream event this year.
The Great Gonzo – world famous daredevil artiste, has done it all, seen it all, and survived it all. But on Halloween night, the fearless Gonzo takes on the greatest challenge of his life by spending one very daring night in the most grim grinning place on Earth …The Haunted Mansion.
This marks the Muppets’ first-ever Halloween special and features three new original songs, “Rest In Peace,” “Life Hereafter” and “Tie The Knot Tango”, a star-studded Muppets cast, celebrity cameos, and spooky fun for families to enjoy together.
Darren Criss, star of the second season of FX’s American Crime Story, confirmed on Twitter last week that he will be appearing in the special as the Haunted Mansion’s caretaker.
Inspired by all four of the iconic Disney Haunted Mansion attractions located across the globe at various Disney Parks, the “Muppets Haunted Mansion” includes many hidden easter eggs for Disney fans and “Muppet-ized” sets and props that help immerse viewers in the storytelling experience.
Bill Barretta, Andrew Williams, David Lightboy and Leigh Slaughter serve as Executive Producers and Kirk R. Thatcher is Director.
