One of the most highly anticipated movies this summer is Disney’s Haunted Mansion which releases in US theaters on July 28, 2023. You might be eager to know when you can expect the film to become available on Disney+. We’ve got you covered.
The movie, under the direction of Justin Simien, showcases an impressive lineup of stars including LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Chase W. Dillon, Dan Levy, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jared Leto, who plays the role of The Hatbox Ghost.
Drawing its inspiration from the iconic theme park ride, “Haunted Mansion” tells the story of a mother and her son who seek assistance from a diverse group of self-proclaimed spiritual experts to help them exorcise their home of ghostly intruders. The production team behind this film includes Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich as producers, while Nick Reynolds and Tom Peitzman take on the role of executive producers.
When is “Haunted Mansion” Coming To Disney Plus?
Disney hasn’t officially confirmed a Disney+ release date for Haunted Mansion, but we can certainly make an educated guess based on previous releases.
Given Disney’s tendency to unveil new content on Disney+ on Wednesdays, it seems likely that the Haunted Mansion might premiere on Disney+ on either October 4th or 11th.
We think it’s possible that Disney might have a slightly shorten window for Haunted Mansion to maximum the amount of time the movie is available on Disney+ during peak Halloween season.
Looking at the below table, it’s evident that Disney has consistently followed a pattern of releasing movies between 82 and 103 days after their theatrical debut. This is an average of 90 days. However, the specific timing will depend on various factors, including the film’s box office performance and Disney’s distribution strategy.
Usually, if a film performs strongly in theaters, its arrival on Disney+ is longer to prevent cannibalizing ticket sales.
Previous Theatrical To Disney+ Release time
|Movie||Theatrical To Disney+ Release Time (Days)|
|Black Panther: Wakanda Forever||82|
|Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania||89|
|Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3||89|
|The Little Mermaid||103|
It’s important to highlight that the Haunted Mansion’s UK cinema release is scheduled for August 11, 2023, a fortnight after its initial launch in North America. This suggests the possibility of a delayed Disney+ release in the UK and other territories. Such a delay would imply the film debuts on Disney+ after Halloween, which is not ideal. Consequently, a simultaneous global Disney+ release could be a likely scenario.
Update: Disney has confirmed that ‘Haunted Mansion’ will be coming to Disney+ on October 04, 2024.
Will “Haunted Mansion” Be On Disney Plus?
Yes! Haunted Mansion will eventually be available on Disney+. However, if you are eager to watch it in the near future, you will need to purchase a movie ticket as it will take many months before the movie is released on Disney+.
Will “Haunted Mansion” Be Available Digitally?
Yes! Haunted Mansion will be available to purchase and rent from all major digital retailers, including Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu, Movies Anywhere etc.
As of now, Disney has not announced a specific release date for the availability of Haunted Mansion on digital platforms. However, we can make a prediction based on the patterns of previous Disney movie releases.
Take The Little Mermaid as an example, which hit the cinemas on May 26, 2023, and became available for digital purchase and rental on July 25, 2023 — a span of exactly 60 days. If Haunted Mansion follows this same trajectory, we anticipate its digital release to be on September 26, 2023.
UPDATE – Disney has announced that “Haunted Mansion” will be available on digital retailers beginning October 4, 2023.
Will “Haunted Mansion” Be On Netflix?
No! Haunted Mansion will not be available on Netflix. The movie will be available to purchase and rent digitally before finding its permanent home on Disney+ later this year.
