Fan favorite holiday movie (Halloween or Christmas — take your pick), The Nightmare Before Christmas has seen its share of new DVD, Blu-ray, and theatrical releases over the years. The Tim Burton-produced, Henry Selick-directed stop motion animated classic has already seen a 3D release, so what could be next? Well, a 4D release, of course!

The Playlist is reporting that they’re sources are saying that Elfman is now out due to simply having too many other projects on his plate.

Alice In Wonderland Blu-rayAlice In Wonderland
Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Tim Burton
Starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska, Crispin Glover, Anne Hathaway
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
Release Date: June 1, 2010

Most people are already familiar with the story of Alice In Wonderland, the classic tale by Lewis Carroll, about a bored little girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a magical world. In this “wonderland,” she encounters strange animals who can speak and comes up against the evil Queen of Hearts. Disney’s 1951 animated film further popularized the tale and has come to be the definitive on-screen version representation of Alice In Wonderland.

Now, Disney has dipped back into the Alice In Wonderland pool to give us a live-action/CGI hybrid version, directed by Tim Burton. A common misconception is that Burton’s new film is just another remake of the classic, but in actuality, the new film is really a follow-up to the original Alice In Wonderland and its sequel Through The Looking Glass, and probably would have benefited from being marketed that way. And if you expect it to begin right away with Alice falling down that rabbit hole, well, you’ll be a little disappointed, as there’s a lot more for you to learn about Alice before she even gets to Wonderland — or, in this case, Underland.

Alice In Wonderland: Johnny Depp Talks Alice, Preview Score + New Images

Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland

Disney’s Alice In Wonderland movie, directed by Tim Burton, is coming to theaters (in 3D and IMAX 3D even) this March 5 (a very important date). And I, for one, just can’t wait!

Before I get to the news tidbits — new images from the film; preview of the film’s score; and video interview of Johnny Depp — I wanted to clear one thing up about the movie. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll notice that Alice is not a little girl anymore. I’ve had a lot of people ask me about this who think “Alice is too old” because they assume this is a retelling of the original Lewis Carroll tale. It’s not. In Burton’s new movie, Alice is a teenager who’s returned to the magical world she visited as a child, where she reunites with her old friends (all those beloved characters) and is on a mission to end the reign of the Red Queen. You can read the full official synopsis here below.

And now the news…

Most of you probably know (or at least assumed) that Burton’s longtime collaborator Danny Elfman is providing the score for the film. Now, if you visit the film’s official site, you can hear a small snippet of the score. And from what I’m hearing, I already know this is one score I’ll have to own.

The Nightmare Before Christmas
Collector’s Edition
Created by Tim Burton
Directed by Henry Selick
Music by Danny Elfman
Starring (voice) Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara, William Hickey, Glenn Shadix
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
Release date: August 26, 2008

There’s not a whole lot left that you can say about Tim Burton‘s The Nightmare Before Christmas that hasn’t been already said at some point since its release in 1993. Thankfully this isn’t just any movie, it’s grown into something else, something bigger.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is an adventure that ties together the worlds of our most beloved holidays, Halloween and Christmas. We follow Jack, The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who goes off seeking something different from the same ol’ Halloween happenings. While deep in the forest, he discovers the doors to the various other holidays, eventually going through the way to Christmas Town. While there, he sees how beautiful and magical it is, convincing him that this is exactly what Halloween Town needs and begins his plans. Of course, nothing works as planned and Jack has a mess to clean up to get things set straight!

Danny Elfman To Score ‘The Wolfman’

Universal told AICN that Danny Elfman will be taking care of the score for the upcoming new version of The Wolfman, which stars Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, Anthony Hopkins, and Hugo Weaving. It’s directed by Joe Johnston.

I’m not 100% sure what to expect in this announcement as the footage I saw didn’t really seem like an Elfman project, but I think so long as it’s not Beetlejuice-y, it could be good. Maybe more along the lines of Big Fish and Edward Scissorhands?

The movie is slated for an April 3, 2009 release.

For those who haven’t seen the sneaky footage, check it out below.
