Exclusive : Talks underway for Nightmare Before Christmas follow-up

No surprise, Disney considering a return to Halloweentown.

With everything from ‘’Aladdin’’ to ‘’The Lion King’’, ‘’Dumbo’’ and “Toy Story” renewing their leases at the House of Mouse this year, you won’t be at all surprised to hear what could be next on the brand restitution card at Disney.

“The Nightmare Before Christmas”, the gloriously enchanting and everlastingly entertaining stop-motion film (sometimes mistaken for a Tim Burton film but actually the work of Henry Selick; with Burton responsible for the story and producing), is as popular today as it was when it was released in October of 1993 – maybe even more so. With Disney continuing to exploit the brand big-time in recent years, bringing out fresh t-shirts, snow globes, collectible figures, re-issuing the film every holiday season and pushing other tie-in merchandising for the halloweeny-christmas film, the studio clearly doesn’t plan to let the movie disappear from the public subconscious anytime soon.

And if this latest tip is anything to go by, Jack Skellington is going to become just a permanent fixture of the next decade too.

There’s talk at Disney to “do something with “Nightmare Before Christmas” – probably a sequel but live-action possible” we’ve been informed (the tip comes from someone who has given Moviehole credible intent in the past; in particular, they were spot-on with the “Backdraft 2” scoop they offered us).

Now that doesn’t mean there’s a live-action “Nightmare” movie on the way – would that even work? I don’t know… – it just means that Disney are considering all options for some sort of sequel or follow-up, and one of those is having “Nightmare Before Christmas” go the way of their “Lion King”, “Aladdin” and “Dumbo” remakes and have us humans headline it. No surprise, really.
On the other hand, maybe they’ll give us a standard stop-motion sequel and heck, if they can come up with a script that’s decent, I think fans would much prefer that over seeing an A-lister get about in a skeleton-suit.
Either way, there’s definitely some “Nightmare Before Christmas” talks, and I guess Disney will look at how some of their other returning brands, like the aforesaid live-action remakes, go before locking in their return to Halloweentown.

In 2018, TokyoPop released a comic-book sequel to the film, “Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey,” which followed Jack Skellington’s dog, Zero, as he gets lost in Christmas Town.

Io personalmente non sono un grande fan del Burton degli ultimi anni, mi da l’idea di aver esaurito il talento. Disney o non Disney i suoi ultimi film li ho trovati tutti mediocri o deludenti, con la sola eccezione di Frankenweenie e La sposa cadavere (che reputo comunque film non alla sua altezza), l’ultimo suo film che mi è davvero piaciuto è stato Big Fish.

Detto ciò, NBC è un brand ancora estremamente popolare, basta entrare in un Disney Store vicino al periodo di Halloween, ma non solo: recentemente è uscito in Italia anche un manga con protagonista Zero.
Capisco la volontà di dare nuova linfa (anche se pure io propenderei maggiormente per una serie tv animata), ma bisogna anche vedere se Henry Selick ha voglia di tornare a lavorare per la Disney (ricordo che lo avevano chiamato nel 2010 per un progetto che poi hanno cancellato, e magari non ha voglia di tornare a lavorare al mondo di Jack Skeletron).

Concludo dicendo io personalmente non ho mai capito il successo di Beetlejuice, mentre non mi spiego come nella Hollywood di oggi non sia ancora stato preso in considerazione l’idea di fare un sequel di Edward mani di forbice!
