Jack Skellington is coming back for a new story that picks up right after the events of the movie. But it won’t be shown on the big screen, because you’ll have to read it.
A second manga based on Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is scheduled for release in spring of 2018 according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Handled by manga comic publisher Tokyopop, the second “Nightmare” book will be called “Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey”. The story will follow Jack’s dog Zero, as the dog gets lost in Christmas Town and eventually finds its way home.
This new manga is planned to be released in full-color, single-issue comics first, says the report. These issues will later be compiled and released in both full-color trade-paperback, as well as black and white, pocket-sized manga volumes.
The first manga adaptation of the film came out in 2005.
“The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a stop-motion film by Disney which came out in 1993. It followed the story of Jack Skellington as he tries to celebrate Christmas in Halloween Town. Alfred Bayle/JB
