But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry.

Did you know? In 2001, Walt Disney Pictures began to consider producing a sequel using computer animation rather than stop-motion. Tim Burton convinced Disney to drop the idea. "I was always very protective of [Nightmare] not to do sequels or things of that kind," Burton explained. "You know, 'Jack visits Thanksgiving world' or other kinds of things just because I felt the movie had a purity to it and the people that like it." Read More

Trivia:
This film's story originated in a poem written by director Tim Burton in 1982 while he was working as an animator at Walt Disney Feature Animation.

Tim Burton said that the original poem was inspired after seeing Halloween merchandise display in a store being taken down and replaced by a Christmas display. The juxtaposition of ghouls and goblins with Santa and his reindeer sparked his imagination.

In 2001, Walt Disney Pictures began to consider producing a sequel using computer animation rather than stop-motion. Tim Burton convinced Disney to drop the idea. "I was always very protective of [Nightmare] not to do sequels or things of that kind," Burton explained. "You know, 'Jack visits Thanksgiving world' or other kinds of things just because I felt the movie had a purity to it and the people that like it."
