The Nightmare Before Christmas brings to life a poem written by Tim Burton in 1982, envisioning a land of Halloween and its Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington. Tired of Halloween, Jack goes in search of something more and stumbles upon Christmas Town. Very soon he hatches a devious plan to take over Christmas and replace Santa Claus, bringing his signature macabre style to the job.
Though Burton initially considered a short film or 30-minute special, eventually a development deal was reached with Disney Studios for a full-length feature film. The film went into production in 1991, and released on October 29th, 1993, just in time for Halloween.
Its initial release enjoyed critical and financial success, as well as becoming the first animated film nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. It has become a seasonal favourite, with fans pulling out the film to enjoy again each Halloween and Christmas.
