The Nightmare Before Christmas Director Has An Intriguing Pitch For Tim Burton

The first issue to tackle when trying to figure out how to continue the story of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is the format. How could such a project come together without potentially diluting the original? In the eyes of Henry Selick, the safest bet would be a short. “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,” Selick told Collider in a 2022 interview. With that, the next thing the team would have to explore is candidates to lead this hypothetical mini-sequel.

Of the many iconic characters to come out of “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” Zero the dog is undoubtedly among the most popular. Throughout the film, he’s consistently at Jack Skellington’s side with a smile on his face and his jack-o-lantern nose alight, and fans couldn’t love him more for it. Therefore, to Selick, he’s the perfect character to star in the proposed “Nightmare Before Christmas” short sequel. If it were to come together, it could follow his day-to-day life as Halloween Town’s resident ghostly canine. “Honestly, not making this into a series of shorts makes Zero sense,” Selick adds.

Perhaps someday, a “Nightmare Before Christmas” continuation will come to pass. If it ultimately does, a string of Zero-centric shorts or even a single one isn’t too bad of an idea.
