Whenever a series or iconic establishment can involve The Muppets…we're on board. A frightful and hilarious story is headed to Disney+ on October 8th with Muppets Haunted Mansion. Of course, the celebrity guest stars alongside the Muppets are set to be fantastic. Starring in the special alongside fan-favorite Muppets, are Will Arnett (as The Ghost Host), Yvette Nicole Brown (as The Hearse Driver), Darren Criss (as The Caretaker), and Taraji P. Henson (as The Bride).
In "Muppets Haunted Mansion," 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 grimmest-of-the-grim places on Earth… The Haunted Mansion!
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.
"Muppets Haunted Mansion" will also feature special appearances from Chrissy Metz (as Harriet), Alfonso Ribeiro (as Fred), Edward Asner (as Claude), Jeannie Mai (as Maude), Danny Trejo (as Huet), Sasheer Zamata (as Mary), Craig Robinson (as Bust), Skai Jackson (as Bust), Pat Sajak (as Bust), Geoff Keighley (as Bust), Justina Machado (as Bust), John Stamos (as Himself) and Kim Irvine (as Haunted Mansion Maid). Personally, the Asner appearance will be amazing to see & be able to reflect on and enjoy his comedic wits on-screen with the Muppets.
The Muppets Haunted Mansion EP will be set for release on Friday, October 8 from Walt Disney Records and will include three new original songs titled "Rest in Peace," "Life Hereafter" and "Tie the Knot Tango," plus a cover of "Dancing in the Moonlight." So, get ready for the spooky and fantastic elements that can only come from a Muppet's special on October 8th streaming on Disney+.
