Disney is known for making heartwarming films that remain dear to everyone even after entering adulthood, the stories we all love takes us back to those childhood memories with their fantasy worlds, princesses and magical creatures. But among all of these movies, there is a very special one a unique story that enchanted us, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Originally, the bright idea behind The Nightmare Before Christmas was originated from a poem written by, you guessed it… Tim Burton. When he was working as an animator at the Walt Disney Feature Animation, he had this idea on the back os his mind, about a skeleton obsessed with Christmas and that’s how it all began.
It was late one fall in Halloweenland,
And the air had quite a chill.
Against the moon a skeleton sat,
Alone upon a hill.
He was tall and thin with a bat bow-tie;
Jack Skellington was his name.
He was tired and bored in Halloweenland –
Everything was always the same.
As years passed by, Burton kept on thinking about this poem and the story behind it, thinking that this could be a worth making project. Then in 1990, he finally made a development deal with Walt Disney Studios. Although the movie had a pretty good ending, it’s impossible not to admit that we would like for it to continue, would it be possible?
During recent years, Disney has been making our inner children happy by re-making plenty of our favorite classic Disney movies such as Beauty and The Beast, Dumbo, Aladdin and much, more so having a remake of The Nightmare Before Christmas doesn’t sound too crazy.
According to some information that has been spreading around the media, The Walt Disney Studios is looking to take over again on the popular stop-motion animated musical. Whether the sequel will be live-action or classic stop-motion is still unknown, but just the mere possibility of this movie coming back is amazing!
It is also rumored that, if a sequel is actually happening, Tim Burton would get involved with this new project. Despite the fact that for the original movie, he was mainly in charge of the story and character design, we hope that for this project Burton carries on as a director and amaze us one more time with his unique, creative and spooky work.
