Director Henry Selick is addressing rumors about a sequel to the 1993 stop motion classic “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

At an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival, Selick explained, “A sequel has come up several times. 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.”

He was then asked about a stop motion short and responded, “The idea of a short has never come up in the past. I think that Tim might be open to a short. It would have to be so refreshing, such a new take to justify making a sequel, but a short makes good sense.”

Do you think there should be a sequel to ‘Nightmare Before Christmas?’

Is ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ a Halloween movie or a Christmas’ movie?
