This is what we like to see. Being one of the most beloved animation films of all time, The Nightmare Before Christmas is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. You can go into any store and always find something that’s themed from the movie. To add to the list of this, Dynamite Entertainment has announced that they have picked up the license for Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

This comic series is being written by Torunn Grønbekk who has written several successful comics for Marvel such as Darth Vader: Black, White, and Red, Venom, Thor, Red Sonjay, and many more. It is expected to be released sometime in 2024. While we don’t have much more information on this project, we should hopefully hear something this week at San Diego Comic-Con as they have 2 panels scheduled.

First released on October 13, 1993, this stop animation film created by the mind of Tim Burton, was a hit at the theaters and has now gone on to be a major cult classic. It was praised for its amazing stop-motion animation, amazing soundtrack, and how great a story it was. The movie has grossed a total of $91.5M on its $18M budget over the several rereleases it’s had in the last 27 years.

The film’s story “follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world.” When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he gets a new lease on life — he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry.”

While many fans have been eager for a sequel or some type of spinoff to happen, nothing has been announced or has happened yet. A book was released last year called Long Live The Pumpkin Queen which follows the story of Sally and is right after the events of the film. If a sequel or spinoff film were to happen, it would have to be in the beloved stop-motion animation that made the first film famous.
