Muppets Haunted Mansion: Disney+ announces Halloween special
8th May 2021
The Muppets are getting into the spooky spirit this Halloween, with a new special Muppets Haunted Mansion.
The first Halloween outing for the furry troupe will take place on Halloween night, when Gonzo is challenged to spend one very daring night in the most grim grinning place on Earth: The Haunted Mansion.
The special will feature a star-studded Muppets cast, along with celebrity cameos, all-new music and spooky family fun.
The announcement was made today to tie in with a wider Disney Parks “Halfway to Halloween” event, but the video of Gonzo and Pepe the King Prawn unveiled the project is, in itself, reason enough to be excited about the news.
The special will, of course, premiere on Disney+ this autumn, joining the recent part-improved series Muppets Now, which premiered on Disney+ last year. Here’s the video:
