SALT LAKE CITY — What’s this, what’s this? There are rumors in the air that Disney is reportedly looking at revisiting the 1993 classic “The Nightmare Before Christmas” in a future film project.
That means we could be seeing either a “Nightmare Before Christmas” sequel or live-action remake in the near future.
Is it likely?: According to Screen Rant, this report, which was initially published on Moviehole, should be taken with a grain of salt. Given Disney’s current track record with rebooting old favorites, however, it’s possible these talks are happening.
What it could look like: A live-action reboot of the film would be difficult, according to Screen Rant, as the original film’s protagonist Jack Skellington removes his head and his friend Sally un-stitches herself.5 comments on this story
- With the success of the original film’s stop-motion animation, it would make more sense for Disney to create a sequel with hyper-realistic CGI, similar to "The Jungle Book" remake, according to Screen Rant.
Only time will tell if these rumored talks reach fruition.
“The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a Tim Burton classic that was nominated for an Oscar for visual effects for its stop-motion charm.
