Disney announced today a new Muppets special coming to Disney+ this fall called Muppets Haunted Mansion. This Muppets special will feature the classic Muppets formula: the Muppets cast, music, and celebrity cameos. Personally, my favorite celebrity cameo was Molly Shannon in It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie even though it’s not my favorite Muppets movie. Honestly, it’s hard to pick a favorite Muppets project. If I had to pick, it would probably be The Muppet Christmas Carol.
What The Halloween Special Is About
According to the WHAT’S ON DISNEY PLUS website:
Muppets Haunted Mansion takes 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 Muppets’ YouTube Video
The announcement was made to help celebrate the Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products’ ‘Halfway to Halloween event.’ The YouTube video features The Great Gonzo and Pepe the King Prawn. Gonzo announces the Disney+ special and every time he says “Muppets Haunted Mansion,” lightning strikes. Unfortunately, Pepe just isn’t The Great Gonzo and lightning will not strike for him.
The Muppets have been around since the 70s and have been a family favorite ever since. This will be the Muppets’ first Halloween special and will surely be on the watch list of many. I wonder who the celebrity cameos will be.
