We have been witnessing the incredible success and profit Disney have been making from their live action adaptations of popular animated movies. Inside information has given us a glimpse of hope that Disney will take this idea to the claymation hit that ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ is.
With die hard fans and a beloved main character, ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ is a filmed loved by many, and adored by more. Would a live action adaptation become the next big hit? Or would life long fans feel that this is a disservice to the original? Only time will tell!
Personally, I am a big fan of the original claymation, and would have to see a live version to develop an opinion of it. The idea of one doesn’t offend me, and think that if done right, the movie could be great!
It comes as a surprise also that Disney is so invested to make a live-action movie of ‘A Nightmare before Christmas’, but back in the day, the studio did not want to attach its name with the production and released it under the name of their Touchstone Pictures label rather than making it an official Disney animated film. Disney has not officially announced a Nightmare Before Christmas remake yet, but the idea is definitely in the minds of the producers in Disney.
