The famous spooky Disney ride is getting another movie adaptation, 19 years after the “Haunted Mansion” movie inspired by the theme park ride, which starred Eddie Murphy, was released.

The “Haunted Mansion” isn’t the only ride that Disney had based some of their feature films on. The company had also banked on their other attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, and Tomorrowland.

As per Collider, the new “Haunted Mansion” film revolves around a single mom and doctor named Gabbie (Rosario Dawson) and her nine-year-old son, who purchase a suspiciously affordable mansion in New Orleans. After discovering that the mansion is haunted, they seek help from a priest (Owen Wilson), a paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a grumpy historian (Danny DeVito).
