The delightfully frightful holiday classic makes its Blu-ray 3D debut this summer!
More astonishing and spectacular than ever before, Academy Award® nominated writer/producer Tim Burton’s overwhelmingly favorite 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' becomes available for the first time ever to own on Disney Blu-ray 3D™ on August 30!
'The Nightmare Before Christmas' is produced by Academy Award® nominated writer and producer Tim Burton ('Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' 'Corpse Bride') and Denise DiNovi ('Edward Scissorhands,' 'James and the Giant Peach'), directed by Henry Selick ('Coraline,' 'James and the Giant Peach') and written by Michael McDowell ('Beetlejuice,' 'Thinner') and Caroline Thompson ('Corpse Bride,' 'The Addams Family'). And the spectacular characters are voiced by the talents of Chris Sarandon ('The Princess Bride,' 'Fright Night') as Jack Skellington’s speaking voice, Danny Elfman ('Corpse Bride,' 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory') as Jack Skellington’s singing voice and Catherine O-Hara ('Home Alone,' 'Best In Show') as Sally, to name a few.
