Disney Developing HAUNTED MANSION Animated Special

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Disneyland's The Haunted Mansion, Disney Animation is developing an animated special inspired by the ghostly theme park attraction. It will air on Disney Channel and Disney XD, and it will be developed by Phineas and Ferb co-creator and executive producer Dan Povenmire.

According to THR, the TV special will be animated by legendary horror genre artist and children's book illustrator Gris Grimly (Gris Grimly's Wicked Nursery Rhymes), who is also an executive producer and art director on the project. It will be written by Scott Peterson (Phineas and Ferb), and Joshua Pruett (Phineas and Ferb) has come on board as a consulting producer and writer.

There sure is a lot of Phineas and Ferb talent involved with this project! I do love that they hired Grimly to animate the show and develop the designs. I love his art style! You can check out some of his Star Wars illustrations right here. As you'll see, he's perfect for this project. I'll be looking forward to seeing how this project develops.
