To celebrate the recent theatrical release of Disney’s live action “Haunted Mansion” film, a new collection of Funko Pop! figures and plushes inspired by the ghostly feature are now available for pre-order.
All of these items are available for pre-order online at Entertainment Earth, and focus on the versions of the happy haunts from the live action film.
This Hatbox Ghost Funko Pop! features the character’s sinister grin from the live action film, as portrayed by Jared Leto.
The figure is scheduled to launch sometime this month, but pre-orders are still open.
The full collection includes five Pop! vinyl figures, and all arrive in-box.

‘Haunted Mansion’ Movie
The live action film follows a doctor (Rosario Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase Dillon) moving into a haunted abode in New Orleans. Dawson’s character ends up calling in a priest (Owen Wilson) to exorcise the manor. They also get help from a widowed scientist-turned-failed-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a historian (Danny DeVito).
Jamie Lee Curtis portrays Madame Leota, and Jared Leto serves as the Hatbox Ghost. Curtis called the film “modern, fresh, old-fashioned, and scary, but not scary like a monster movie. It’s scary, like a Disney ride, and funny. If you go on that ride, there’s a lot of humor as well as the scary, ghost-y stuff.”
Curtis, Wilson, and Stanfield briefly worked at the iconic attraction at Disneyland to promote the film, reciting “Ghost Host” lines in the process.
Zillow shared a behind-the-scenes look at the various movie sets in a fictional “listing” for the haunted abode.
