The world of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is the gift the keeps on giving for Disney. And now, fans of the iconic family classic have a new piece of merchandise incorporating the world of Jack Skellington, and it’s one of the coolest tie-ins yet. This fall, Insight Editions will release The Nightmare Before Christmas: Pop-Up Book and Advent Calendar. With this calendar, the Pumpkin King and his pals will come to life like never before.
You can preview images of this stunning calendar and its accompanying book down below.
Halloween Town aficionados everywhere can now countdown to Christmas with this pop-up advent calendar. Inside, readers will find a perfectly ghastly pop-up tree. Hidden in compartments beneath it are 25 removable and displayable ornaments—from skeletal reindeer to a man-eating wreath—to hang on the tree. Also inside is a 28-page softcover guidebook containing fascinating facts about Jack Skellington’s home of Halloween Town and all of its spooky residents.
The Nightmare Before Christmas was only a mild box office success when it first came out in theaters back in 1993. But thanks to home video and countless airings on TV, it became a holiday classic. Of course, the holiday it represents is eternally up for debate. Is it a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? Regardless of where you fall in that argument, Nightmare is now incorporated into Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion every holiday season, and is a staple of the theme park year round.
Nightmare’s most iconic characters are all included in this advent calendar, including Sally, Zero, and Oogie Boogie. Hopefully, the zombie guy who is very excited to see the Easter Bunny gets a nod too. Just because he’s our favorite.
The book is available for pre-order now on Amazon, and will be available wherever books are sold on September 29th.
