On today’s 52nd anniversary of the premiere of the Haunted Mansion dark ride at Disneyland, two first-look images from this October’s new Muppets Haunted Mansion Halloween special have been released, including Kermit and Miss Piggy in costume …as each other.
The special will feature the Muppets cast, along with celebrity cameos, new music, and fittingly seasonal fun for all ages.
Muppets Haunted Mansion will take place on Halloween Night, when Gonzo is challenged to spend one night in The Haunted Mansion.
The photos giving us our first look at Gonzo, Pepe the King Prawn, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy in the special were released today via Entertainment Weekly.
The iconic 52-year-old Haunted Mansion dark ride, featured at both Disney World and Disneyland parks, was previously seen on the big screen in director Rob Minkoff’s 2003 film starring Eddie Murphy. It’s also recently been reported that Dear White People creator Justin Simien will helm another movie based on the theme park ride.
You can see the first two official photos from the special and watch the Muppet Haunted Mansion official announcement video with Gonzo and Pepe the King Prawn below.
