The Nightmare Before Christmas
September 14, 2011 | January 1, 2012
Tim Burton’s 1993 Disney Studios film is a timeless classic of stop-motion animation. Since their last showing at the McNay, the character puppets and settings used in the film have undergone expert conservation assessment and treatment by Nightmare animator Tennessee Norton and his artist brother, Wendel. Now, Jack Skellington; Oogie Boogie; and Lock, Shock, and Barrel make mischief again as they kidnap “Sandy Claws” and remake Christmas in the ghoulish image of Halloween.
