Whether it’s visiting the Holiday Doors, Halloween Town, or Christmas Town, it is going to be a journey you won’t forget. What if we told you that it could be possible that we will see these worlds come to life again in the future?

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a fan-favorite film that follows our friend, Jack Skellington, through his journey of trying to bring Christmas to Halloween Town. There were many ups and downs with this process, but in the end, he got his happy ending.

According to Selick, “We wouldn’t be jumping at the idea of making a sequel due to the large amount of work associated with the first film”, continuing on to say “It’s a perfect movie [that] came out of the perfect time, only to grow into something far bigger over the years.”.

Selick turned the attention to the opinions of the creator of the film, Tim Burton, stating “I think Tim [Burton] in particular feels like, why mess with that? I still think that Tim gets to decide. I don’t think there’s any idea that would convince him.” So, if there are no intentions to create a sequel for this film, what does this mean?

A prequel will tell the story of what happened prior to the first movie taking place. According to the director of Coraline, There might be a more interesting story there about how Jack became the King of Halloween Town”.  When People Magazine brought this up to Selick, he replied enthusiastically stating “If there were a sequel, I’d be there in a minute”. To add to the list of people who are willing to return, Chris Sarandon, the voice of Jack Skellington said he would absolutely want to come back to reprise his role.
