Read 1st Chapter of “Tales from the Haunted Mansion”
I reported last month that a new Disney Parks Chapter book was coming soon about the Disney Classic attraction “Haunted Mansion.”
Michael Siglain, Editor at Disney Publishing Worldwide and Creative Director at Lucasfilm Publishing , loves the attraction so it was an amazing project opportunity for him. He stated “I love the idea that a book can expand upon such an iconic ride, so that readers can take a little piece of the ride, or in this case, maybe even a ghost, home with them,” . Siglain worked closely with Walt Disney Imagineering to bring the Haunted Mansion off the page. “We were granted unprecedented access to the ghosts, which was both helpful and horrifying,” Siglain recalled.
Andy DiGenova, associate producer at Walt Disney Imagineering, hopes that Tales from the Haunted Mansion will bring a little spirit of the Disney Parks attractions home. “I think it’s great that guests who already love the Haunted Mansion will now be able to have a small piece of it back in their homes with this book. And it’s exciting to think of the people who may discover the book first and have it inspire them to come see the Haunted Mansion in person.”
Fans should look out for special nods to the attraction in the book in and out of the book.
