You may have already heard that Disney is re-releasing Tim Burton’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS on October 20th in Disney Digital 3-D (see the trailer here). The film was not originally shot in 3D, but is being digitally manipulated to create a three dimensional version.Animator Joel Fletcher, who worked on the film as an animator, photographed several set ups during production with his own 3-D camera. Since the film is coming out next month in a “converted” 3D version, these photos give an idea of what it might look like – or should look like. They are presented in anaglyph format, so red/blue glasses are required to see the stereo effect. Here is a direct link to Joel’s 3-D Nightmare gallery.UPDATE: Jeff Kurtti comments: “Am I just seeing this? When did Walt Disney Pictures reclaim Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas? For years it has been a Touchstone Pictures-branded release…”
