Fans have been issued a formal invitation to dare to visit Muppets Haunted Mansion next month via The Muppets official Twitter account. The tweet also offered a poster for the performance, which showed some of our favorite Muppet characters dressed up for this “spooky swinging party,” as well as a release date for the Muppets Haunted Mansion.
Miss Piggy and Kermit were dressed as each other in the first-look photos, but the billboard depicts them in suitable formal attire for a lavish event, sporting classic clothes from Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride. It will feature new original songs such as “Rest In Peace,” “Live Hereafter,” and “Tie The Tango,” as it is the first Muppets Halloween special. Kirk R. Thatcher directs Muppets Haunted Mansion, which is executive produced by Bill Barretta, Andrew Williams, David Lightbody, and Leigh Slaughter.
The Haunted Mansion will be visited by daredevil Gonzo the Great and smooth-talking Pepé the Prawn in the first-ever Muppets Halloween spectacular. Gonzo accepts the challenge of spending the night in the mansion and surviving the morning, lest his spirit is stuck for all eternity in the sacred corridors. The Muppets and the Haunted Mansion were created for each other.
Muppets Haunted Mansion stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, plus if human actors are more your style, Will Arnett, Yvette Nicole Brown, Taraji P. Henson, and Darren Criss.
The spooky event, which will be streamed on Disney Plus on Oct. 8, will include the grim grinning ghosts and the Muppets.

About The Franchise
The Muppets franchise has a long history. The Muppet Movie, the first Muppets feature, was released in 1979. The Great Muppet Caper was released in 1981, while The Muppets Take Manhattan was released in 1984. The franchise has been able to attract a new generation of fans with each subsequent release.
Sam and Friends, a short-form television series that aired from 1955 to 1961, gave birth to the Muppets. The Muppet Show (1976–1981), which garnered four Primetime Emmy Award wins and twenty-one nominations during its five-year run, helped the franchise acquire global notoriety after appearances on late-night talk programs and in advertising during the 1960s. The Muppets were purchased from the Henson family by Disney in February 2004, allowing the characters to reach a wider audience than in prior years.
