‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Unveils 4K UHD Release Date

Prepare for an early Christmas surprise or a delightful pre-Halloween treat! The long-awaited 4K UHD Blu-ray version of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” has finally announced its release date. Fans can look forward to adding the highly anticipated “ultimate collector’s edition” to their shelves on August 22, just in time for the spooky season. While the specifics of what makes it the “ultimate” edition remain unclear, this two-disc set is expected to include bonus material, which will likely be disclosed at a later date.


The captivating artwork prominently showcases the Pumpkin King himself, Jack Skellington, with his haunting smile, impeccably tailored suit, and quirky bat-shaped bowtie. Behind him, a full moon ascends above the pumpkin patch, while his loyal ghost dog, Zero, soars through the sky. With the addition of Dolby Atmos sound, this release guarantees a breathtaking viewing experience of Henry Selick’s exquisite stop-motion animation and the enchanting musical compositions by Danny Elfman, ensuring your living room is filled with delight.

Directed by Selick and based on a story by Tim Burton, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” narrates the tale of Jack Skellington (voiced by Chris Sarandon and Elfman), a highly respected resident of Halloweentown who stumbles upon Christmastown through a portal. This discovery reveals a world beyond the realm of spooky creatures and jump scares. Determined to infuse his own world with joyous holiday spirit, Jack abducts Santa Claus (voiced by Ed Ivory) and assumes his identity. However, not everyone is pleased with the idea of Christmas cheer, as a mischievous team led by Oogie Boogie (voiced by Ken Page) has their own sinister plans.
