Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D



Tim Burton’s holiday classic, “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” makes its turn to the big screen this holiday season in stunning Disney Digital 3D. On the occasion of its 13th anniversary, and with a dazzling new makeover of the musical fantasy, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is led by the film’s original filmmaking team of Academy Award Nominated writer/producer, Tim Burton (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Corpse Bride”) and director, Henry Selick (“James and the Giant Peach”), as well as the talented technical wizards at Industrial Light & Music. By donning polarized 3D glasses, audiences now get the opportunity to get \closer than ever to all the mischievous and ghoulish ghosts and goblins, as well as Halloweentown’s beloved Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington (voiced by Chris Sarandon), as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally (voiced by Catherine O’Hara), a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters, Lock, Shock and Barrel, to help him kidnap Santa Claus. Eventually, Jack realizes that he’s made a grave mistake. However, he has to contend with the evil Oogie Boogie before he can make his wrong right, and restore the Christmas holiday.

Stimulated by an unforgettable Grammy nominated soundtrack, the film features ten ghoulishly delightful songs by Oscar nominated Danny Elfman, who has also provides the singing voice for Jack. Other popular musical artists include Fall Out Boy, Fiona Apple, Marilyn Manson, Panic! At The Disco and She Wants Revenge.
