I have two great Disney Halloween Movie titles, Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, that would be a perfect gift to you or someone who loves movies! Both movies are considered the Disney classics. Add them to your family movie night collection!
Hocus Pocus Blu-ray DVD as A Holiday Gift
First of all, this HOCUS POCUS movie is perfect for the entire family! It is filled with hilarious, bewitching laughs and magic. If you know the movies with Bette Midler, she is one of my favorite actresses who can transform any situation from sad to funny and the same in reverse order. Joining her, Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) and Kathy Najimy (The Wedding Planner), are the witches from the seventeenth-century Salem, who come to our time to reclaim their youth.
3 Fun Facts About HOCUS POCUS Movie
• Producer David Kirschner came up with the idea for the movie one night while he and his young daughter were sitting outside and his neighbor’s black cat strayed by. Kirschner began to unspool a narrative of how the cat was once a boy who was changed into a feline 300 years ago by three witches.
• Actress Kathy Najimy described her character Mary as “Eddie Haskell as a witch,” referring to the character on the classic TV series “Leave It To Beaver.” “She sucks up to Winifred [Bette Midler’s character] every chance she gets. She wants to be part of the power club and Winifred’s got the power.”
• To create the costumes, designer Mary Vogt read many historical books about Salem, Massachusetts. “I even read diaries of women who were hanged as witches,” she says.
Sing Along with The Nightmare Before Christmas
Blu-ray Holiday Edition
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas caught my imagination the very first time I went to see it on the big screen. The perfect creative talent of Chris Sarandon, Danny Elfman, Director Henry Selick, we’ve got some of the best Disney classics ever!
Fun Facts About The Nightmare Before Christmas Animation
• The movie contains 227 animated characters
• Santa Claus’ head has more than 50 different working parts
• Jack Skellington has more than 400 separate interchangeable heads, each crafted with a different facial expression
• The smallest working puppet in the movie is a doll from the “real world” Jack Skellington visits that is only one inch long
• Sally is wearing a real miniature dress laid on top of foam latex so that the fabric doesn’t move too much on screen
• The movie features 11 ghoulishly captivating songs by Danny Elfman – what a frightful fun for the whole family movie night!
• The Night Before Christmas is the FIRST EVER full-length stop-motion animated film – yet another huge WOW!
• At the height of the movie production, the animators produced only 70 seconds of finished film per week – it tells us something about the intensive work process.
• To create a Halloween Town’s twisted look, the design artists often made their sketches using their nondrawing hand – quite typical to be creative!
