Uncle Creepy at DreadCentral.com has a major exclusive. Tim Burton creator of the celebrated, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is planning a sequel sometime after he finishes the remake of Dark Shadows. However, Burton is in such demand that the follow-up for character Jack Skellington could be on the backburner for quite a while. Burton hit it big this year with Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” starring Johnny Depp. The fantasy flick broke a billion dollars at the box-office and kept Burton’s name on the lips of fans and Tinseltown executives.
DreadCentral.com received this information from a reliable source and went on to say:
“The news comes to us from a recent interview with Paul “Pee-Wee Herman” Reubens (who worked with Burton on Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure) in promotion of his live Broadway show, which closes January 2nd but is being taped for HBO. When asked if he would like to work with Burton again, Reubens replied that he’d like to, but Burton has so many projects happening right now, including Dark Shadows, it’s not likely. He went on to mention a few more, but the big reveal came when Reubens mentioned that Burton is also planning a sequel to “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Believe it or not, it has been over 17 years since the original film premiered on October 29th, 1993. Since then, the fan base has only grown by leaps and bounds. Few films can boast this kind of popularity.
