On two occasions over the past couple years, we at Inside the Magic have interviewed Southern California filmmaker James H. Carter II about his then in-production feature documentary about the fan culture surrounding Disneyland’s world-famous Haunted Mansion attraction. Entitled “Foolish Mortals,” the movie has now been completed and is set to make its world premiere this weekend at an offsite location during the after-hours of Disney’s D23 Expo fan convention.
