San Diego Comic-Con 2010: Guillermo del Toro's Haunted Mansion Teaser Art





Yesterday's announcement of Guillermo del Toro remaking Disney's The Haunted Mansion set the interwebs on fire. Today we have some teaser art to go along with the news!

From the Press Release
Guillermo del Toro surprised the 6,500 fans gathered today at Comic-Con with the announcement that he is currently developing a new film for The Walt Disney Studios based on the classic Disney theme park attraction, The Haunted Mansion.

“Dark imagery is an integral part of the Walt Disney legacy. After all, Disney himself was the father of some really chilling moments and characters - think Chernabog from Fantasia or Maleficent as the Dragon or the Evil Queen in Snow White,” said del Toro. “I couldn't be more excited to be a part of my own adaptation of the original theme park attraction Walt envisioned and that remains- for me- the most desirable piece of real estate in the whole world!"

“Millions of people from around the world visit The Haunted Mansion each year, but no one has ever had a tour guide like Guillermo del Toro,” said Rich Ross, Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “Guillermo is one of the most gifted and innovative filmmakers working today and he is going to take audiences on a visually-thrilling journey like they’ve never experienced before.”

Look for more on this as it comes. This has the potential to be totally friggin' mind blowing! Today's a great day for Haunted Mansion fans!

It'd be hilarious if Guillermo still casts Eddie Murphy in the movie.

Teaser art. Isn't it supposed to make one curious which is why it's given the term teaser art. If that's not the case then they need to coin a new term.

Yeah, I left 'cause there were a bunch of people who seem to enjoy insulting people on the internet because obviously they have nothing in their real lives that makes them feel good about themselves. Sound like someone you know Messiahman. Haha. I've always felt Uncle Creepy and The Woman in Black were a great team and I respect them. Too bad they attract the wrong kind of people. I just came back because I knew there would be an Inception thread. But seeing as how I was hoping for much, much bigger things from Guillermo than a Disney movie I thought I'd share my disappointment on that too.

It's teaser art. It's supposed to tease the tone of the film. Not that hard to figure out.

Why are you posting here, Floyd? I seem to recall a hilariously whiny rant followed by your supposed exit.

So somebody cooks that up in 5 minutes and it's supposed to do what exactly?
