What’s This?! We have a video here featuring Danny Elfman and Billie Eilish performing songs as Jack Skellington and Sally in Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas in costume! Elfman and Eilish are dressed as their characters at The Nightmare Before Christmas live-to-film concert experience at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on Friday.
Eilish performed the solo ballad “Sally’s Song” before Elfman joined in for the “Finale/Reprise”. You can check out the video below. It seems like it would have been a fun concert to attend, especially for fans of the classic film.
Other guests involved with the live show included “Weird Al” Yankovic and original Nightmare Before Christmas voice actors Paul Reubens, who voiced trick-or-treater trio leader Lock, and Ken Page, the voice of skin-crawling bug bad guy Oogie Boogie.
It was announced earlier this year that Disney Publishing hired Shea Ernshaw (The Wicked Deep, Winterwood) to write a young adult sequel novel to the film. The story talks place shortly after the events of the first film and is told from Sally’s point of view. It’is described as a “yet-to-be-told love story of Sally and Jack” and a coming-of-age story as Sally lives up to her new royal title as the Pumpkin Queen of Halloween Town.
