Rejected “Haunted Mansion” Intro Reel

“Kubo and the Two Strings” creator Shannon Tindle used social media over the weekend to unveil something rather special – a teaser for an animated take on Disney’s “The Haunted Mansion” ride which he developed for the studio.

The project was developed last year with several others as part of his overall development deal with Disney Television Animation. Tindle wrote pilots for two different versions of a possible “Haunted Mansion” animated series – one limited, one ongoing.

Sadly the project never really went beyond a teaser as Disney opted not to move forward with either. Now though, he’s been generous enough to share the proof of concept ‘intro reel’.
