The Nightmare Before Christmas is an animated classic movie everybody loves. Even when everyone loves the movie and how much money the movie will make, we never get The Nightmare Before Christmas 2. Actually, Disney is interested in making a sequel for the movie. But they want to make it in CGI instead of the classic stop motion and for the director Henry Selick, it won't feel the same. The other reason why we never see the sequel of the movie is that the writer and producer Tim Burton is not interested in creating any sequel for the sake of keeping the purity of the movie for himself and the people who love the movie.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is rated PG because it contains some frightening images such as scary monsters and creatures. But the movie itself is not scary. It's a classic family movie everybody can watch, except probably for kids under five. The story is not scary in any way. It just has a scary-looking visual in Tim Burton's style. If you want to watch the movie with young children, you may need to guide them just in case.
The Nightmare Before Christmas was made in the 90s. There is no such thing as CGI and digital manipulation like we see in the recent production. It is a classic stop motion film. The production process took about three years because the animators have to create every scene manually by slightly moving the characters little by little to create smooth and natural movements. This is why it becomes such a great movie because the making process takes a lot of effort and hard work.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a great family movie and is good for viewers of any age. Even when the visual seems scary, the story is fun and entertaining and not scary in any way. it is a funny and light movie to watch. The movie shows some creepy looking creatures but there are no real creepy scenes. There are also some violent acts shown in the movie like the kidnapping of Santa Claus and when Jack gets shot by the military, but with a parent's guide, it shouldn't be a problem for the kids.
