It was only last night that the new trailer arrived for Disney’s upcoming live-action take on Aladdin, and now comes word that another famed House of Mouse property could be getting revisited.
Courtesy of Moviehole, there’s rumblings that there could be something in the works where The Nightmare Before Christmas is concerned. The outlet reports that Disney is looking to possibly do a live-action sequel to Henry Selick’s 1993 effort.
Of course, take all of this with a pinch of salt until we hear anything concrete from Disney, but this is surely something that will instantly grab the attention of many a genre fan.
Produced by Tim Burton, the stop-motion animated Nightmare Before Christmas centred on the Chris Sarandon-voiced Jack Skellington as he looks to bring Christmas to his homeland of Halloween Town.
Despite not setting the world on fire at the box office upon its initial release, The Nightmare Before Christmas has gone on to become a hugely popular cult favourite as the years have gone by.
In recent years, Disney has already given audiences new live-action takes on Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book and Winnie the Pooh in Christopher Robin, with live-action versions of Aladdin, The Lion King, Dumbo, Lilo & Stitch, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, Sword in the Stone, Snow White, Pinocchio and Mulan all in various stages of development.
Could The Nightmare Before Christmas be about to get added to that ever-expanding list? We’ll have to wait and see.
As ever, expect more on all of this as we get it.
