Is Haunted Mansion streaming?

Welcome foolish mortals, to the second attempt to make a feature film out of Disneyland’s famous attraction, The Haunted Mansion. Thanks to the numerous Disney theme parks around the world, there are a few different variations of the Haunted Mansion. But the mythology behind the original ride has been enough to support a previous movie, The Haunted Mansion, which featured Eddie Murphy in the leading role. Now, 20 years later, Disney and director Justin Simien are trying again with a new Haunted Mansion that is completely separate from the previous film. We’ll just call it a reboot.

For the new film, LaKeith Stanfield is headlining the cast as Ben, a man whose grief for his recently deceased wife, Alyssa (Charity Jordan), has led him to become a paranormal guide. Rosario Dawson also stars as Gabbie, the new owner of the infamous Gracie Mansion, with Chase W. Dillon as her son, Travis. Gabbie and Travis quickly learn that their home is haunted, and not even fleeing the mansion allows them to escape the ghosts who will follow them wherever they go.

Tiffany Haddish also stars in the film as a psychic named Harriet, with Owen Wilson as Father Kent, Danny DeVito as Professor Bruce Davis, Everything Everywhere All at Once star Jamie Lee Curtis as Madame Leota, Jared Leto as the voice of the Hatbox Ghost, and Winona Ryder in a small role as a tour guide named Pat.

Now, it’s time to answer your burning question about Haunted Mansion.

No, not yet. Disney has largely abandoned the idea of simultaneously releasing films in theaters on the same day that they hit Disney+. This means that Haunted Mansion will haunt theaters for a minimum of 30 days before these ghosts start streaming. Of course, the more successful Haunted Mansion is in theaters, the longer it will stay there. But for the moment, it’s too soon to say how the film will fare in a very crowded summer landscape.

Will Haunted Mansion be available to stream at home?

Yes, and it should happen this fall. Possibly as soon as September, but it may be a better fit for October, given the spooky (and yet family-friendly) subject matter. Disney will likely release Haunted Mansion for digital and Blu-ray/4k before giving it a proper debut on Disney+.

If you just can’t wait a few months, the 2003 Haunted Mansion movie is streaming on Disney+ right now, and so is the delightful Muppets Haunted Mansion. That should tide you over until the new batch of grim grinning ghosts who love to socialize is streaming.

Beware of Barbenheimer

Right, the thing that scares Disney isn’t a ghost from Haunted Mansion. It’s the cultural phenomenon of Barbenheimer. The one-two punch of Barbie and Oppenheimer is once again expected to finish in the top two slots at the box office, leaving Haunted Mansion to settle for third place in its debut weekend. The fear is that those two films won’t leave much oxygen for anything else at the box office, which would leave Haunted Mansion and the rest in the dust.

Disney Plus Free Trial: Can you stream for free in 2023?
Disney+ app on the iPad Air 5.

Unfortunately, there is not a Disney Plus free trial right now. Disney hasn't offered one for a few years. However, you can currently get the ad-supported version of Disney Plus for just $2. Disney is offering a special discount that gets you three months of the service for $2 per month. The service is normally $8 per month, so you'll save $24 total by the end of your three month subscription. This offer is only available until September 20, 2023.

Another way to save is through the Disney Bundle, which sees ESPN Plus and Hulu thrown in for just $13 a month. On their own, Disney Plus is normally $8 per month, Hulu is $8, and ESPN is $10, so this is a great deal.  If it sounds good to you, you should start your subscription now. The price of the Disney Bundle is increasing to $15 on October 12, 2023.

Is The Nun 2 streaming?
Bonnie Aarons as Valak in The Nun 2.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the birth of The Conjuring universe, and it's become one of the biggest horror movie franchises of all time. To date, there have been nine movies, including three Conjuring flicks, three Annabelle films, the standalone story The Curse of La Llorona, and now, two Nun movies. The Nun hit theaters in 2018, and now, The Nun 2 has finally arrived.

Taissa Farmiga reprises her role as Sister Irene, one of the few who survived the previous encounter with the demonic Nun (Bonnie Aarons) in the first film. Unfortunately, Irene has no idea that her friend, Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet), has been possessed by the Nun, whose real name is Valak. The sequel occurs in France in 1956, as Irene receives a troubling vision about Valak's return. Irene soon finds herself in a race against time to prevent Valak from obtaining an ancient relic.

The main cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 lined up together.

Disney+ has some of the best movies to stream thanks to its combination of theatrical releases and originals. While it's not the most consistent streamer for varied content, having big-name properties like Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and National Geographic ensures that there's a dense backlog for most viewers. The platform also has the benefit of being one of the most accessible in the streaming market, but this curated and regularly updated guide will nonetheless help you pick the best Disney+ movie selections to stream right now.

What's more, subscribing to the Disney Bundle is also worth your streaming dollars if you're not already signed up. This package grants collective access to Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu's base ad-supported plan for just $13 a month. Considering the content covered across all of these individual streaming services, it's a fairly competitive value.
