The Haunted Mansion: Every Ghost We Spotted In The Teaser Trailer

Disney has a bit of an uneven track record when it comes to adapting its theme park rides into feature-length films. Naturally, "Pirates of the Caribbean" has seen monumental success, spawning numerous sequels in the process. However, the same really couldn't be said of its 2003 effort, "The Haunted Mansion," starring Eddie Murphy. That movie currently stands at an abysmal 14% critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes. No doubt the company is hoping for greater success with its next stab at the theatrical attraction with this year's adaptation, "Haunted Mansion."

The movie has a lot going for it, including director Justin Simien, who also helmed "Dear White People" and "Bad Hair." It also has a pretty impressive cast, including Tiffany Haddish, LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, and Danny DeVito, to name a few. However, there's probably a good chunk of audiences who aren't so much interested in the living talent as seeing their favorite ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride pop up throughout the film. And if you look closely at the teaser trailer, you can see quite a few will make their way to haunt the building's new residents. 

It'll be a spirited good time

For anyone who's had the chance to ride Haunted Mansion at any of Disney's theme parks, the celebrities weren't the only familiar faces in the teaser trailer. It becomes a who's who of ghosts and all kinds of things that go bump in the night, as well. One of the most highly-anticipated ghosts who appear in the trailer is the Hatbox Ghost, who will be played by Jared Leto. Fans even get a chance to see him do his iconic gimmick, where his head disappears from his shoulders and into a container. 

There are all sorts of spooky paintings that are staples at the Disneyland attraction. Plus, there's a ghost in a bridal outfit who pops up after an image of a painting with a bride appears. Rosario Dawson's character and her son also get chased by a knight in armor, who we can only assume is the Knight of the Living Dead, who's no longer a part of the ride but would be played by an actual cast member who would jump out to scare unsuspecting victims. There's also a Beheaded Knight character, but seeing how the Knight in the trailer has their head, it's probably not that one. 

The trailer promises an excellent mash-up of horror and comedy elements that appears to stick pretty faithfully to the ride. Hopefully, the movie this time around sticks the landing. "Haunted Mansion" comes out in theaters on July 28.
