Halloween Mansion at the Disney Theme Parks is the most often visited theme park attraction on site. Already adapted once as a live-action movie with Eddie Murphy in 2003, The Muppets now re-adapted that follows more closely to the ride in Disney’s Muppets Halloween Mansion.  The entire cast of The Muppets star alongside special guests with Will Arnett, Yvette Nicole Brown, Taraji P. Henson, and Darren Criss.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 grinning place 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 viewers in the storytelling experience.

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.
