Well, yes. I am going off of many fan based stories most of which are here on micechat. I just wanted to know what kindof story or film plot could possibly revolve around that character. (I do think it was established somewhere that he is a hat salesman of some sort. but other than that, it seems like an odd character to pick as the "center of the web that ties the mansions together")Um - never heard either of those stories before. They are probably fan fiction. The only officially written bit about the Hatbox Ghost came from The Story and Song From The Haunted Mansion
I read in an article the other day that Del Toro said something about the RIDE in disneyland being the most haunted place on earth. I really want to find that article because I can't seem to find it anymore.
However, in an IGN interview, Del Toro said something like this:
The writer may change Hattie's origin a bit in order to make him more of a pivotal character. but would that make him more like the Ghost Host?The story will revolve around the character of the Hatbox Ghost, as seen in the attic portion of the ride. A new mythology centered on the mansion as the most haunted place in the world, will revolve around this pivotal character.
I'm just wondering.
