Retailers appear to be going big on early Halloween and Christmas celebrations this year, though The Nightmare Before Christmas is becoming a real year-round thing. That's no surprise given the growing popularity of the film. Composer Danny Elfman recently chimed in on the phenomenon:
"When it came out, I did a two-day press junket and virtually every interview started with: 'Too scary for kids, right?'," Elfman, who composed the music and provided the singing voice of Jack Skellington, recalled to Variety. "I think that's why Disney was like, 'What do we do with this thing? We're a family film company.' So to come back years later and to see families out there, and to be getting recordings of people's kids who are 4 years old singing 'What's This' or 'This is Halloween,' makes me really feel blessed. It's like a second life and proving them wrong."
He continued, "And to Disney's credit, after a decade or 15 years, they recognized that there was still this following, and they started putting energy back into it. This time they understood what it was. And not many companies would have done that — pick up a decade-old film and put energy into it. I consider the persistence of Nightmare Before Christmas to be one of my real pleasures in life."
