Release Date Rewind : The Nightmare Before Christmas (30th anniversary)


What's this? What's this? This is another Halloween-themed episode! Mark welcomes actress and producer Heather Drew on the show to reunite after working together on Sticks, and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Nightmare Before Christmas, the groundbreaking, detailed, Oscar-nominated stop-motion Disney film that was directed by Henry Selick (not Tim Burton, like some people think!). The story of Jack Skellington and Sally opened wide in US theaters on October 29, 1993, when Mark saw it in the theater. Heather first watched this on Christmas, which prompts the question: Is this a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? They ponder what a Nightmare Before Christmas theme park would be like, and should we ever get a sequel?
Release Date Rewind
Movie nerd, filmmaker, and anniversary celebrator Mark J. Parker brings a friend on each episode to discuss movies (and sometimes TV shows and music) that are hitting milestone anniversaries of release that month. Think 20th anniversary, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th, you get it! They'll dive in together, discussing fun facts, memorable moments, and what makes these movies worth a rewind all these years later. Let's get nostalgic! The podcast logo is created by Greg Clements. The theme song is the instrumental version of "Dance This Out" by singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger and producer Smoke and Mirrors.
