Disney Television Animation is in development on "Haunted Mansion," a special for Disney Channel and Disney XD inspired by the popular Disney Parks attraction. Legendary horror genre artist and children's book illustrator Gris Grimly ("Gris Grimly's Wicked Nursery Rhymes") is attached to executive produce and art direct with Scott Peterson executive producing, story editing and writing and Joshua Pruett consulting producing and writing, both of "Phineas and Ferb." The news was announced today by Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation.

"Over the past few years we have focused our strategy on making Disney Television Animation the home for the strongest talent in the business," says Coleman. "We have steadily built our roster with both animation veterans and fresh voices, and have fostered an environment where artists support and inspire one another. This group will help us continue to deliver the great storytelling and beloved characters that the Disney animation legacy is known for."

The news arrives just one week after Guillermo del Toro offered an update on that status of a Haunted Mansion live action feature film.
