George the Imagineer and his Movie Style Wedding

Greetings Ghost Fans,

Many people who disliked the Haunted Mansion movie feared that all movie tie-ins to the actual mansion would be disasterous. Many people know my stance on the film, everything but the acting and story were massivly enjoyable. But it appears that one or more movie tie-ins slipped into the mansion without many people noticing.

In the new Disneyland Attic, Constance has displayed for us, the haunted portraits of her previous husbands. Her most recent husband George actually has a secret identity (like the other portrait characters). George's real name is Rick Rothschild. Rick is a Walt Disney Imagineer who has helped on such projects as Disney's Animal Kingdom and Stitch's Great Escape.

It appears that his wedding to Constance was given quite the movie treatment as well. For their wedding photo was taken in the Ballroom of the Haunted Mansion movie. While its only a sketch, this artwork was the concept created by production designer Nathan Schroeder. His concepts alone for the movie were amazing and awe-inspiring.

Stay tuned for next week when we take another small look at something that has snuck into the mansion from its Hollywood counterpart.

Special Thanks to Daveland for the use of his attic photo. View his many photos at his blog, listed in our links section.

*Hmmm. With that grin, maybe he could be the HBG. Hmmm.*

Oh, sorry. Muttering to myself again.

Two supports for George = HBG. (1) The little tale told at Julia Lee's website could be read so as to put George into the final position, which seems to be one of unusual prominence, hinting that there's more storyline a-comin' down the pike; and (2) George's hat seems to be the only one missing from the hatrack now standing in HBG's old spot.
