presentation and learn about some of the techniques filmmakers used to create the film. Walt Disney Imagineering Show Producer Theron Skees said he hopes guests visiting the exhibit gain a new appreciation, not only for the technical aspects of the movie, but the rich story, as well.
“We want guests to leave [the new exhibit] with a feeling that it’s not just
the special effects and wizardry of the film that make it great; it’s also a great story,” Theron said. While Soundstage 4 has been home to several behind-the-scenes attractions, this will be the first to open before the
showcased film debuts in theaters. WDI Show Writer Jason Surrell, whose
new Disney Press book The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies will hit stores next month, said guests visiting the exhibit will see familiar touches of horror and humor. “The [original] attraction and the film are a great balance of horror and laughs,” Jason said. “That balance is something the entire family can enjoy.”
