Looks like Guillermo Del Toro revealed a bit more about the Haunted Mansion reboot he’s going to do for Disney. He Confirmed last Thursday that the new movie will focus on the character of the Hatbox Ghost.
The Hatbox Ghost is a character that was featured in the original Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland but was removed due to problems with the visual effects required to pull off the illusion of its head disappearing from its body and reappearing in a hatbox that it carried.
A limited-edition (limited to 999 pieces) was released at Comic-Con featuring artwork by OC area artist Ragnar. Ragnar is regular to the Con and Del Toro contacted him personally to do some concept artwork for the film. The print was limited to 999 pieces as a tribute to the 999 ghosts that inhabit the mansion.
