    If this movie takes off, my heartfelt, long-time wish for yours ghoully to become a principal character and fully-functioning animatron inside The Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland may finally come true. And that would give ol' Hattie PLENTY to grin about.

    The central figure in a web of haunted mansions???

    Oh, Dear God, please don't let him cast me as an AFTERLIFE REAL ESTATE AGENT. I look lousy in a blazer (especially with no pants) and HATE rising early in the mourning [sic].

    Wandering off the beaten path here (and there may well be man-eating plants, venomous snakes, and giant spiders out there!) but just interesting to note, despite early concepts, we never got a Haunted Mansion that looked like this:

    Until Mystic Manor, that is, of course, which seems to take off in a totally different direction than the other HM's. But I always liked this kind of "kooky Victorian"/Charles Addams style.

    End the sidetrack in 3...2...1....

    I'm going to like this movie a lot, I think.

    So, has the rumored HBG for the ride been postponed due to be timed with the movie maybe?

    The movie should be awesome, especially since the director is a big HM fan. My fear would be that it would be a cue to WDI to alter the feel of the ride to be more scary. I really like the ride since it's not so scary.

    Re: The Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect Thread 7: Further Realms of Fright

    I'm going to post off topic a bit, but on something that I think is close to our hearts in another way.
    July 26, 2010 is the day that the Star Tours we know and love--the one that some of us *ahem* grew up with--closes its doors forever. I, unfortunately, cannot attend the parks until tomorrow (July 27) and will have to consider my last trip on it to be on June 22. Now, we all recognize that Star Tours is an incredibly dated ride in its current form, and that an upgrade is needed. We should also count our lucky stars that the ride isn't being taken out altogether, but I suppose the success of things like Star Wars Weekends in Florida have helped that some. However, it still remains that part of our collective consciousness as Disney fans--many of us growing up with weekly, monthly, or yearly trips to the park--is being taken away and will remain just a memory of what once was.
    I bring this up here because while the Haunted Mansion is the ride I'm most fascinated with, and the Tower of Terror is the ride I'm most exhilarated by, the fact remains that Star Tours is the ride that always made me giggly and happy. It's the ride I knew by heart enough to know which cabins to avoid (or perhaps that's just evidence that I went too the parks too often this year, which I have. [My trip count is numbering in the 20's or 30's for this year alone, and you have to remember, I don't work there.]) My favorite memory of the ride is going on it with an entire cabin of off the clock CM's late at night, all of them from Tomorrowland attractions, and every single one of us said every line from the ride along with Rex and the other characters. It's the first ride my then-six year old brother knew all of the lines to, and if my mom went too fast in the car, he would shout "Brakes! Brakes!! WHERE ARE THE BRAKES?! AAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!" much to the chagrin of my mother. I'm posting about it here because...well....It's awesome. You can't NOT have a good time on Star Tours.

    ...Unless you get motion sickness or have epilepsy. Then it's maybe not your favorite ride.
    dreams. come. true.

    Yeah, I'm gonna miss the original Star Tours. Looking forward to the revamp, but it's a bittersweet thing, for sure. I'm fortunate in that I'm probably going to get to ride it tomorrow - er, today. I'm sure the wait will be rather long, and I won't mind at all. This is one of many parts of Tomorrowland that needs refreshing, but I intend to make the most out of this while it's still here.

    Star Tours will be missed I hope the revamp is worth its weight in salt though

    I think because Del Torro is such a big haunted mansion fan, he wont let Disney try to change the ride. If he plays his cards right, he will use existing characters and themes that already are in the mansion, just so it will stay the same attraction it always was. If anything, though, the mansion will be better with the addition of the hatbox ghost. (In a way, i think this "movie" is just a cover up to get Hattie back in the mansion.) Is he directing the movie? Because i heard he was writing/producing it.

    He stated several times now that he wants to direct it, but is not sure he will have the time to direct it.

    Thats what I was thinking. I think this movie is revolving around Hattie because he wants him back in the mansion.
