It’s not just Muppets with an invitation to the Haunted Mansion. While the Muppets Haunted Mansion is set to hit Disney+ on October 8, there is actually another remake of the classic Eddie Murphy movie coming our way.

And now we know two more celebrities who have been issued an invitation to the haunting. According to Collider, Owen Wilson is sticking it out with Disney after his turn in the new Loki series. And this time, it’s all about the mansion soiree. And Deadline reported that Rosario Dawson is another star with an invite to the big event as well.

While we do not know what role Wilson or Dawson will be taking on in this remake, we do know that they are joining a cast that already includes LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish. At this point, we don’t quite know if the movie will take a similar approach to the Eddie Murphy version of the story or if they will go down an entirely new route with this one, but either way we are excited.

And it will be even more exciting once we have more cast members and an idea of what roles Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Stanfield, and Haddish will be portraying. (Is anyone else hoping for Tiffany Haddish to take on the role of Madame Leota, the head in the crystal ball?)

The Haunted Mansion remake adds Owen Wilson and Rosario Dawson to the cast

It’s exciting to get more Haunted Mansion news, especially following the invitation from the Muppets for their own adventure within this spooky mansion. Of course, we can’t wait to find out who else will be in this more official remake and what exactly the storyline will be. (We wouldn’t mind a Jennifer Tilly cameo or even Marsha Thomason being the realtor.)

Also, we would love it if the remake came out sooner rather than later, especially considering how long it has been since we had a fresh look at the mansion and its ghostly inhabitants.

Next. Jungle Cruise success means a sequel with its stars is coming. dark

What do you think Disney fans? Are you excited for Owen Wilson to be a part of the Haunted Mansion remake? And who do you think Rosario Dawson will play? How do you think the remake will bring this story to life? Who else would you like to see join this cast? We want to know.
