Here’s Why There Hasn’t Been a “Nightmare Before Christmas” Sequel Yet

“The Nightmare Before Christmas” will be 30 years old next year.  And the way things are in Hollywood, it’s baffling that there hasn’t been a sequel yet.

It sounds like there could have been one several times by now, but there’s one particular sticking point:  Director Henry Selick and producer Tim Burton are only willing to do it using stop-motion animation like the original.

Selick says, “A sequel has come up several times, [but] initially, they always said, ‘But it will have to be CG.’  And that was a non-starter for me.  It certainly was for Tim Burton.”
