‘Haunted Mansion’ – New Image of Jamie Lee Curtis as Madame Leota

Disney takes you back inside their Haunted Mansion this summer with a brand new movie, and Entertainment Weekly has shared a new look at the film this afternoon.

Oscar-winning horror legend Jamie Lee Curtis plays the iconic Madame Leota in Haunted Mansion, and she’s clearly having a ball in the photo you’ll find down below.

“She starts off as one of the relics, one of the items, one of the aspects of the house that has to be discovered, but becomes a functional character and a useful ally in the film,” director Justin Simien explains to EW, teasing the role Jamie Lee Curtis will play in the new movie.

Disney’s new live action Haunted Mansion movie will be releasing in theaters on July 28, 2023, and it’s been rated “PG-13” for “thematic elements and scary action.”

Justin Simien (Dear White People, Bad Hair) directed the new live action adaptation of the popular, long-running Disney theme park attraction that’s home to 999 haunts.

Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, and Hasan Minhaj will also appear in the new movie.

“In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase Dillon), looking to start a new life, move into a strangely affordable mansion in New Orleans, only to discover that the place is much more than they bargained for. Desperate for help, they contact a priest (Wilson), who, in turn, enlists the aid of a widowed scientist-turned failed-paranormal expert (Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Haddish) and a crotchety historian (DeVito).”

The dark ride attraction, which launched in 1969 and is still going strong today at Disney parks, “sees theme park guests go inside a spooky and creepy manor that has a wide array of supernatural frights. It also features a graveyard’s worth of characters.” The most popular characters include Hatbox Ghost, Madame Leota, The Phantom and the Hitchhiking Ghosts.

Katie Dippold (Ghostbusters 2016) is writing the new movie’s script for Disney.
