Earlier this year, we shared news that 2016 would be a good year for fans of Disney’s Haunted Mansion as Disney is preparing to launch a brand new novelized series based on the attraction as well as a new theme park exclusive series of book/cd inspired by classic attractions. In addition, Marvel today announced it too will be representing the Haunted Mansion as the next chapter in its Disney Kingdoms saga.
Today, Disney Publishing Worldwide released some inside pages as well as additional information about the novels, beginning with Volume I: The Fearsome Foursome (formerly sub-titled The Frightmare Fraternity), which is slated for release in July and now available for pre-order.
The updated publisher’s description follows, with the page previews embedded in our gallery below. We’ve also included pages and covers from the other upcoming titles:
Welcome, foolish mortals, to Disney Press’ spookiest chapter book series yet: Tales from the Haunted Mansion! Based on the attractions from the Disney Parks, each new book tells the story of one of the Haunted Mansion’s 999 ghosts. With eerie illustrations throughout and a beautiful three-piece cloth cover, the books are designed to look like they came straight from the library in the Haunted Mansion.
Tales from the Haunted Mansion is a fun, spooky ride, just like the attraction from the Disney Parks. And if readers are familiar with the ride, they’ll see elements of it throughout the entire story, from items straight of the Mansion (are those pictures stretching?) to lyrics from the narration that is heard in each Doom Buggy.
In this bone-chilling book, you will hear the terrifying tales of the Fearsome Foursome–four kids who look to out-scare each other. But just wait until they hear my spooky stories. Who am I? I am Amicus Arcane, your librarian and host. Your Ghost Host. So read on… if you dare!
