Do you love Disney’s Haunted Mansion? Of course you do. Well the folks at D23 have just released the very first chapter of Tales from the Haunted Mansion, a brand-new chapter book series based on the classic Disney parks attractions!
Michael Siglain, editor at Disney Publishing Worldwide and creative director at Lucasfilm Publishing seems incredibly passionate about the project, is beyond ready to see this thing hit shelves:
“I love the idea that a book can expand upon such an iconic ride, so that readers can take a little piece of the ride, or in this case, maybe even a ghost, home with them,” Siglain said. Siglain worked closely with Walt Disney Imagineering to bring the Haunted Mansion off the page. “We were granted unprecedented access to the ghosts, which was both helpful and horrifying,” Siglain recalled.
Adding to the list of insanely talented people lending their imaginations to the paper world of 999 happy haunts is associate producer at Walt Disney Imagineering, Andy DiGenova, who is confident that guests will be able to experience the vibe and thrill of Disney’s Haunted Mansion right in the comfort (or discomfort?) of their own homes:
“I think it’s great that guests who already love the Haunted Mansion will now be able to have a small piece of it back in their homes with this book. And it’s exciting to think of the people who may discover the book first and have it inspire them to come see the Haunted Mansion in person.”
