Disney’s Haunted Mansion Movie Casts Winona Ryder, Dan Levy & More

Disney’s Haunted Mansion movie adds Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, and more to its star-studded cast. The Haunted Mansion ride was first adapted into a film starring Eddie Murphy in 2003, and two decades later is getting a remake from director Justin Simien (Dear White People). Several A-list actors including Jamie Lee Curtis, Tiffany Haddish, LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Jared Leto and Danny DeVito have already been announced as cast members for the film.


Now Disney reveals at its D23 Expo that new cast members including Ryder, Levy, and Hasan Minaj will share the screen with the rest of the already stacked cast in Haunted Mansion. Whether Ryder, Levy, and Minaj will be ghosts in the mansion, or whether they’ll be part of the living world is not yet known. A full quote from Simien on the film from the D23 Expo via Variety can be read below:

“There was something about that ride that I felt was there in the script. I wanted to be sure all the Easter Eggs are there because I’m a nerd.”

Knowing that Simien wants to include as many Easter eggs to the original Haunted Mansion ride as possible, means that Ryder, Levy, and Minaj may play characters from the original ride. However, narrowing down which potential characters they may play will not be easy considering there are a plethora of iconic characters not currently cast, such as Aunt Lucretia, Raven, The Bride, and many more. Viewers will have to continue following announcements regarding who Ryder, Levy, and Minaj will play in Haunted Mansion ahead of its premiere on March 10, 2023.
