‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ Gets Blu-ray and 3D Treatment

Nightmare Before Christmas 3d blurayOne of the most creative, slightly terrifying, and beloved cartoon films ever will soon get the full 3D Blu-ray treatment. A special edition of the classic Tim Burton film, Nightmare Before Christmas, hits shelves August 30. The super set will include Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and 3D Digital Download.

We can’t knock it until we try it, but I’m not sure the film needs the 3D boost, though it’s certainly fun. Think about it: Jack Skellington sledding through Christmastown and Oogie Boogie’s den popping right out of the screen is actually kind of cool.

Of course, in addition to the format change, the 3-disc set will come with a lengthy list of features to entice you even further. Here’s the official list from Disney:

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
