"'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems,
in a place perhaps you've seen in your dreams..."
On Halloween 2006, our favorite nightmare is returning - but in another dimension.
On the occasion of its 13th anniversary, Tim Burton's hippest of holiday classics,
The Nightmare Before Christmas, is making a ghoulishly groundbreaking comeback to the big screen,
seam- lessly transformed into stunning Disney Digital 3D®.
This dazzling new makeover offers a frightfully fun, eyepopping
trip into a universe of magic and wonder that remains unlike any other.
The transfromation of the film was led by the original filmmaking team of Tim Burton
and director Henry Selick - and was turned into reality through an intense, frame - by -
frame digitizing process spearheaded by the technical wizards at Industrial Light & Magic
and driven by a passion for the film's visual splendor and timeless characters.
Thanks to the polarized 3D glasses, audiences will now have the chance to get truly
up close and bone-rattlingly personal with the film's cast of mischievously macabre ghosts and goblins.
They'll be transported directly into the 3D center of the haunted house-like environs of
Halloween Town as its bored Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, attempts to take over the festive Christmas
season for a change of pace.
Fueled by an unforgettable soundtrack featuring ten infectiously spooky songs by Danny Elfman,
who also provided the singing voice for Jack, Nightmare 3D is being released in conjunction with
a new soundtrack album from Walt Disney Records that revisits the music in equally fun ways.
The two-disc set features Danny Elfman's acclaimed original score, four never-before-released demos from
Elfman and a collection of covers of the film's most favorite songs from such popular artists
as Fall Out Boy, Fiona Apple, Marilyn Manson, Panic! At The Disco and She Wants Revenge.
Instead of red carpet, Nightmare 3D had a black carpet premiere, and
we were invited to it too! Unfortunately, they didn't let us take pictures,
so we borrowed some.
Along with Nightmare 3D, Disney also released a new, special edition soundtrack.
Besides the original songs, this features some covers done by various artists,
as well as some 'demo' versions.
