The Nightmare Before Christmas

Disney has attached a new video trailer to next month's Blu-ray release of 'National Treasure 2,' previewing a dozen of their biggest 2008 Blu-ray disc releases, including a first look at the still-unscheduled next-gen release of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.'

Dropping on our doorstep this week was a copy of Disney's 'National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets,' which features a pre-movie trailer previewing a host of previously-announced upcoming releases, including 'Tinker Bell' and 'Sleeping Beauty.'

The excitement comes at the conclusion of the montage, however, with a sparkling clip for Tim Burton's beloved cult classic 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.' Though the spot offers no exact street date, the Blu-ray is touted as arriving this Fall, and timed to coincide with a new standard DVD two-disc re-issue.

No additional specs are revealed in the spot, though it does promise fully remastered video and audio, plus all-new exclusive bonus features.

We've contacted Disney, and there is currently no further official information available for what is sure to be one of the season's most eagerly-anticipated Blu-ray catalog releases. We'll definitely keep you posted as soon as further word comes from the studio.

In the meantime, we've added a listing for 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
