Re-watched Nightmare Before Christmas

Watched The Nightmare Before Christmas from

Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.

Creative Director Jack Skellington recovers from burnout by trying something new, but realizes he doesn’t need to sacrifice his identity to regain his creative spark. What was missing, it dawns on him, is not ideas but a partner in life to support him. Loneliness was what he was really feeling. She escapes an abusive father to join him. Hopefully he will listen to her more when they’re together than he did before.
