Walt Disney Pictures Presents
Tim Burton's THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Monday, October 16th at the El Capitan Theater
Tim Burton's holiday classic, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, makes a return to the big screen just in time to celebrate the film's 13th Anniversary this Halloween in stunning Disney Digital 3D(TM). The dazzling new make-over of the musical-fantasy was led by the film's original filmmaking team of Academy Award(R) nominated writer/producer Tim Burton ("Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "Corpse Bride") and director Henry Selick ("James and the Giant Peach") as well as the talented technical wizards at Industrial Light + Magic. Audiences will get closer than ever to Halloweentown's beloved Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington (voice of Chris Sarandon), as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally (voice of Catherine O'Hara), a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters -- Lock, Shock, and Barrel -- to help him kidnap Santa Claus. Jack eventually realizes his mistake but has to contend with the evil Oogie Boogie before he can make things right and restore the Christmas holiday.
