Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Aug. 26 (prebook July 15) will re-release Tim Burton's twisted holiday classic The Nightmare Before Christmas as a collector's edition two-disc DVD ($32.99), Blu-ray Disc ($39.99) and ultimate collector's edition DVD set ($179.99).
All versions feature an all-new digital restoration and a digital copy, as well as new bonus features “What's This? Jack's Haunted Mansion Holiday Tour,” exploring the Disneyland ride; a new uncut version of the Burton short “Frankenweenie” with an introduction by Burton; Burton's original poem that inspired the movie, as read by actor Christopher Lee; a new commentary with Burton, director Henry Selick and composer Danny Elfman; two making-of featurettes; deleted scenes; a storyboard to film comparison; original trailers and posters; and Burton's short film “Vincent.”
The Blu-ray Disc also will include an exclusive introduction from Burton. The ultimate collector's edition also includes a sound chip that plays lines from the film, an individually numbered hand-painted bust of Jack Skellington, a Jack's “Sandy Claws” hat and beard, and a letter of authenticity.
