The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton wrote A Nightmare Before Christmas as a poem when he saw a store taking down Halloween decorations and replacing them with Christmas decorations.

Tim Burton, due to working on other films, was only on set for 8-10 days.

A sequel was considered, but Tim Burton turned down the idea.

Jack opening the Christmastown door was the hardest shot to get.

It took three years to finish the movie, due to the decision that one second would be made up of 24 stop motion moves.

It took one week to film one minute.

Songs such as This is Halloween and What's This? have been covered by artists such as Marilyn Manson, Panic! at the Disco, and Fall Out Boy.
