Danny Elfman Weighs In on 'A Nightmare Before Christmas' Sequel Rumors

In his statement, the composer of the iconic animated movie reveals reasons behind why director Tim Burton has no plans on producing a sequel for the Academy Award-nominated film.

AceShowbiz - Danny Elfman has weighed in on "A Nightmare Before Christmas" sequel rumors. In a new interview, the composer dismissed the speculations suggesting the iconic animated film could be revived for a sequel.

The composer wrote 10 songs and the score for the 1993 animated classic and he also voiced the lead character Jack Skellington. It remains one of Tim Burton's best-loved films, but Danny is adamant rumors of a secret sequel project just aren't true.

While he'd love to return to Jack's world, he thinks Tim has no interest in working on a second movie. Danny told ComicBook.com, "You know, it wouldn't totally shock me if he [Tim] came back with ['A Nightmare Before Christmas']."

"If he had a fresh take on it, I would certainly go for the ride with him," Danny continued. "But he's never expressed any interest in that." He went on explaining, "I think he felt like this was a pure thing and it was what it was and that to try to do sequels on it would, I think it's just not inspired him. But I won't ever speak for Tim," before stressing, "It's his universe."

Danny has worked with Tim on 16 films, including "Edward Scissorhands", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Alice in Wonderland", and scored four Oscar nominations over the years. He's also scored two "Spider-Man" films and more recently worked on new superhero blockbuster "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" with director Sam Raimi.

However, Danny is still close to Tim and they are reuniting for another project together, a TV series called "Wednesday". The show is a spin-off from "The Addams Family" franchise and focuses on the daughter, Wednesday Addams, who is played by Jenna Ortega. It will follow Wednesday as she discovers her psychic powers.
