AKA The Best Movie Ever Made. šŸ™‚ Saved my favorite for my birthday!

Nightmare Before Christmas

For anyone who has not braved it… this movie really is worth watching. The music, the stop motion, the characters and the story are all so unique… and creepy. Yes, it’s a little dark. It’s Tim Burton! And perfect for Halloween. šŸ™‚

Nightmare Before Christmas 2

So there are a ton of fun trivia facts for this movie. One I thought you might like was the fact that the movie is actually based on a poem that Tim Burton wrote in the 1980’s when he worked as a Disney animator.

You can listen to the original poem, narrated by Christopher Lee, here.Ā 

Another fun fact: Disney at one point wanted to make a sequel to Nightmare but Tim Burton talked them out of it. “I was always very protective of [Nightmare] not to do sequels or things of that kind,” Burton explained. “You know, ‘Jack visits Thanksgiving world’ or other kinds of things just because I felt the movie had a purity to it and the people that like it.” – from IMDB
