The Nightmare Before Christmas is perhaps one of the most popular films in the history of cinema. Furthermore, it is one of the most popular stop-motion animation features in film history. The same goes for Coraline. Both movies were directed by Henry Selick. Selick is currently promoting his new movie Wendell & Wild and was asked if there was any chance Nightmare Before Christmas 2 would happen. According to Selick, “People have always wanted a sequel to Nightmare and Coraline. If there’s a good story, it might be worth having. But too often, sequels are just a remake of the first movie, with a few minor changes.
You’re right that most sequels use some of the same plots, jokes, and characters that make them seem like they became a rehash of the first movie.A little more doable.Take Top Gun: Maverick, for example. The movie took a lot of elements from the original movie but turned them into something completely new. It completely worked, letting the movie earn over $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office. It took about 30 years for it to happen this movie, and the same could be said for Nightmare Before Christmas 2. The original movie is now out almost 30 years ago, and it might be worth revisiting.
Is Sally l to Dr. Finkelstein’s daughter?
Originally in the movie, Oogie Boogie was supposed to be a Finkelstein in disguise. Finkelstein, after his defeat, would admit that he was doing this because he was jealous that Sally chose Jack over him. This suggests that Sally may have originally been more of Finkelstein’s love interest than a daughter.
How many children do Jack and Sally have? He discovered that Jack had “four or five scrawny children on hand, playing together in a xylophone band.” Given the ending of the movie, we can assume that these children are Jack and Sally’s. It’s unclear why these are skeletons rather than some sort of rag doll skeleton hybrid.
What is the sequel about?
The sequel will take the form of a young adult novel, written by Shea Ernshaw, who penned the YA novels The Wicked Deep and Winterwood. While the original movie focused on Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, the new story will be written from the perspective of Sally, the beautiful rag doll who has fallen in love with Jack.
From what we know, the lives of the happily married couple will be turned upside down when Sally accidentally unleashes a mysterious villain on Halloween Town and then embarks on an epic quest to other holiday worlds (including one previously unexplored) in an effort to save their world and their king. Along the way, she discovers new secrets about her past life.
In a Disney question and answer session, the author said: “This new book, written from Sally’s point of view, is set shortly after the end of the film. It is the yet-to-be-told love story of Sally and Pero. It’s also an upcoming Sally’s coming-of-age story, as we see her navigate her new royal title as the Pumpkin Queen of Halloween Town while introducing a new cast of dark and spooky characters that I hope readers will love.”
