In case you somehow missed it, the Screen Actors Guild is staggering, which means most studios have canceled their upcoming premieres (including Oppenheimer) as representatives organizing promotional events in solidarity with their fellow union members. However, Disney decided to go ahead anyway with the movie premiere Haunted Palace remake, although the entire film crew is not present. This makes it the first major Hollywood event to take place after the SAG-AFTRA strike was approved. The film’s cast (which includes Tiffany Haddish, Lakeith Stanfield, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, and Jamie Lee Curtis) didn’t attend the premiere, which was held outside Disneyland at the Haunted Mansion. Who, then, was walking the red carpet?
Well, most of them are Disneyland’s cast members, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Maleficent, The Evil Queen and Cruella de Vil, who did their best to keep spirits high at the clearly cursed event (it should be noted that the Disney cast members are not They are experimenting, because they are employees of Disneyland and are not covered by SAG-AFTRA). Director Justin Semin was also at the ceremony, but stressed that the leading cast had his full support. “It’s sad they’re not here,” he said, “and at the same time, I totally support the reason they’re not here.” “And I would be happy to be the one to ring the bell for them.”
