    The Haunted Mansion reboot (my ideas)

    Since Guillermo Del Toro is already working on the Haunted Mansion reboot, I decided to share my ideas for what the film should be like.

    The tone of the film should definitely by dark & scary with little funny, and should also be a PG-13 rating instead of a PG rating of it's flop of a predecessor. Not just that but the mansion's exterior should be based on Magic Kingdom's version instead of Disneyland's version.

    Otherwise here's my ideas for the plot,

    THE HAUNTED MANSION: FINDING A WAY OUT:

    In the modern times, a local man named Paul Burns enters an abandoned gothic mansion in the midst of the woods in upstate New York. Seeking answers as he closes the door and walks into the main corridor of the Mansion he is stopped by a ghost named William Gracey, who astonished to see a living soul in his own home offers him a tour of the mansion. During the tour Paul is told the tale of how the mansion came to be during the mid-late 19th century with revelations of Gracey hosting a dinner party. And during that party a strange man entered the mansion with no invitation and referred to himself as "Mr. Hatbox", in which this concerns Gracey who demands he leave at once for crashing his party. However it is then told by Gracey to Paul that he was murdered by Mr. Hatbox along with others, and so they nicknamed Mr. Hatbox "The Hatbox Ghost" because of his hat and a mysterious box he carried. Although according to Gracey some believe within the box there was a dark curse that killed everyone inside and invited more spirits to join them eventually trapping them all in the mansion. Now trapped as more enter there's no way out... all except for one way out in which Gracey promises to help Paul, others, and even himself find that way out. Of course they have to count on Madame Leota a mysterious female gypsy head inside a crystal ball in order to guide them through to find their way out, along with some others though one of them is secretly in league with the Hatbox Ghost. But in the end before they find the way out one of them has to face off the Hatbox Ghost once and for all.


    More to come soon...

    Re: The Haunted Mansion reboot (my ideas)

    I would like it to connect all the mansions in a small way, New Orleans, New York, and Frontierland place, not in a major way, maybe just a picture in the mansion or a newspaper story.

    The exterior would match the one in Florida, while the interior will match the one in California and the garden will match that of the one in Paris.
