Originated as a poem by Burton in 1982, The Nightmare Before Christmas was released in 1993, revolving around Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town, who accidentally travels to Christmas town and decides to celebrate it. Featuring voices of Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara, Danny Elfman, William Hickey, Ken Page, Paul Reubens, Glenn Shadix, and Ed Ivory, the movie earned about $70 million across the globe but it surely had the potential to do so much more and now Disney is reportedly trying to revive the iconic movie.
Disney, who is currently on a spree of making live-action reboots, is now eyeing The Nightmare Before Christmas and planning to 'do something' with it. According to Bloody Disgusting, the studio is planning to make a sequel of the iconic movie which might be a live-action feature film. Disney is in talks currently to figure out what they can do with the old movie. Well, for starters, they can leave the classic movie alone. Or, a Tim Burton style sequel doesn't sound bad either. Live action? Um...
One of the best things about Tim Burton movies is the beautifully crafted characters! You can't help but fall in love with Jack Skellington and Sally or any other character of Burton's movies. There's a very high chance that if the movie is adapted into a live-action along with some guy who is NOT Johnny Depp, the movie will lose its charm. Nightmare Before Christmas is a holiday treasure which we must protect at all costs. Do you think a live-action reboot is a good idea?
