A Sequel to ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ is Coming

Tim Burton’s seminal seasonal dark tale is set to get a sequel twenty-five years after its release.

But before you get too happy about that news be aware that it will be in the form of a comic book and not another cinematic outing.

Despite the films ‘modest’ critical success upon its release it quickly garnered a cult following due to its comedically dark tone and child-like attitude to the season. Aspects that not everybody finds favour with at Christmastime. And while the rumour mill has often claimed that there is to be a production of a cinematic sequel, the original producer has denied claims that he has any rights on a follow-up.


All is not lost, however, as it has been revealed that the Halloween Town’s story will be continued through a series of comic books. Entitled ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey’, the series will follow the Pumpkin King’s faithful ghost pup, Zero, as he journeys through the magical Christmas Town, expanding the movie’s universe further than we’ve seen.

The series of full-colour single issues, to be published by Tokyopop next year, will be released directly to comic book stores before being released in a collected volume.
