Disney's Haunted Mansion movie arrived in theaters this week but given the lackluster reviews and ease of streaming, you may be content with just waiting to watch it at home. So how long will you have to wait to watch the new Haunted Mansion movie on Disney+?
When is the new Haunted Mansion coming to Disney+?
As the movie just released in theaters, Disney has not yet announced when Haunted Mansion will come to Disney+. But these days, films tend to hit digital and streaming relatively quickly, especially if they don't perform particularly well at the box office.
Typically, Disney movies take between 80 and 90 days to go from theaters to Disney+. Of course, this varies from movie to movie and, again, on box office performance. BLack Panther: Wakanda Forever took 82 days while Ant-Man and the Wasp and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 both took 89 days.
Unfortunately for Disney, all indications -- from reviews to opening day numbers -- are pointing to Haunted Mansion being another flop. Good for those who want to stream, but bad for Disney.
Based on previous release windows, current estimates predict that Haunted Mansion will debut on Disney+ in mid- to late-October (between October 16 and October 15). This would be just in time for Halloween which, honestly, is when I feel the movie should have been released in the first place.
It's worth noting that Haunted Mansion won't release in the UK until August 11, 2023, which means it could see a delayed debut on Disney+ overseas. Or, perhaps, Disney could just wait and have a simultaneous global release. Either way, I think a late-October arrival for Haunted Mansion would be perfect.
If you're waiting to rent or buy it digitally, you'll actually be able to do so sooner. Movies typically arrive on digital about 60 days after their theatrical debut. So we can look out for Haunted Mansion's digital release some time in late September.
