Danny Elfman has joined Tim Burton in dismantling dreams of a Nightmare Before Christmas sequel.
In an interview with ComicBook, Elfman shared his own similar feelings when asked about a Nightmare Before Easter, Nightmare Before Thanksgiving, or any other sequel, spinoff, or offshoot. I think Tim had always believed that no, it was.
Although there are non-cinematic sequels, Burton is adamant about keeping Nightmare at bay.
Many people appreciate the purity of a single non-exploited Nightmare, but others have enough trust in Burtons genius to allow him to expand Skellingtons world if he wishes, according to Elfman.
I would certainly take him for the ride with him. I believe that this was just what it was, and that being able to do sequels on it would, therefore, his views would be no different. I will never speak for Tim. It''s his world.
Elfman has recently admitted that he does not buy into any discussion of a Beetlejuice sequel, and as one of Burtons'' most famous, trusted, and tenured collaborators, youd expect him to be let in on the ground floor was things to change.
