The Nightmare Before Christmas, from Disney and creative-mind Tim Burton, is a fun-filled musical fantasy of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who is bored with his same old scare-and-scream routine. Jack discovers the joy of Christmas Town and decides to fill Santa's boots, but his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere! Featuring a marvelous mix of characters and 11 ghoulishly captivating songs by Danny Elfman -- it's frightful fun for the whole family! It will be a night of ghoulish fun at the drive-in so come join us!
Here's some fun facts about the film you may not know.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is the first full-length stop-motion animated film ever created. The movie contains more than 227 animated characters. Santa Claus' head has more than 50 different working parts, and Jack has more than 400 separate interchangeable heads, each handcrafted with a different facial expression. The smallest working puppet in the movie is a doll named Sally from the "real world" Jack visits that is only one inch long. Sally is wearing a real miniature dress laid on top of foam latex so that the fabric doesn't move too much on screen. At the height of production, the animators produced only 70 seconds of finished film per week. To create Halloweentown's twisted look, the design artists often made their sketches using their nondrawing hand.
