  • KENNETH: What's up, everyone.

  • This is Disney+ Deets, where we break down everything

  • you need to know about your favorite Disney+

  • movies and series.

  • I'm Kenneth!

  • MARCELLUS: And I'm Marcellus.

  • And not to toot our own horns, but we're

  • pretty much the biggest Disney+ fans out there.

  • KENNETH: No, let's do it!

  • Toot toot!

  • Beep beep!

  • That's right!

  • MARCELLUS: Let's get into it!

  • [INTENSE MUSICAL BUILDUP]

  • [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IN BACKGROUND]

  • MARCELLUS: Today, of course, we're going all

  • into the nitty gritty of what you need to know

  • and what you maybe didn't know about

  • none other than "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas."

  • KENNETH: Marcellus, this is a classic.

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, yeah.

  • KENNETH: I have been a fan of this since it was in theaters.

  • MARCELLUS: Well, um, you're pretty up there in age,

  • so I'm sure you remember it all.

  • Haha!

  • KENNETH: You know what?

  • No one asked you, but I was 14.

  • OK?

  • Anyway, what's the thing that we need to know, sir?

  • MARCELLUS: Well, Ken, the first thing you need to know

  • is that this movie is based on a poem written and illustrated

  • by the Tim Burton.

  • It was late one fall in Halloweenland,

  • and the air had quite a chill.

  • Against the moon, a skeleton sat, alone upon a hill.

  • MARCELLUS: He wrote it in the early '80s

  • while he was an animator at Disney.

  • KENNETH: That's right.

  • He worked on "The Fox and the Hound,"

  • "Tron," and "The Black Cauldron."

  • MARCELLUS: Now streaming on Disney+.

  • KENNETH: Nice plug, Marcellus.

  • [APPLAUSE] MARCELLUS: I'm proud.

  • KENNETH: Look how Tim Burton that is.

  • MARCELLUS: That's the iconic shot.

  • KENNETH: We were just brought into the world

  • and the magic that is "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

  • MARCELLUS: Oh my gosh.

  • KENNETH: Marcellus, are you right-handed or left-handed?

  • MARCELLUS: I'm right-handed.

  • KENNETH: OK, so then you can imagine how hard it was

  • for them to draw with their nondominant hand, which

  • is exactly what the artist had to do to give

  • the film its unsettling look.

  • MARCELLUS: That's why it feels so creepy.

  • KENNETH: Exactly.

  • Kind of like how you comb your hair in the morning.

  • MARCELLUS: (LAUGHS)

  • I-I deserve it.

  • I probably draw just as poorly with my left hand as my right,

  • so maybe I could've helped.

  • KENNETH: Nope.

  • Keep your day job.

  • MARCELLUS: Thank you for believing in me.

  • (KENNETH LAUGHS)

  • MARCELLUS: But anyway, it's crazy to think

  • about how many individual frames it takes to pull

  • something like this off. KENNETH: Mm-hmm.

  • MARCELLUS: I know it had to be a lot.

  • KENNETH: Almost 110,000, to be exact.

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, I would just stop.

  • KENNETH: Let's just talk about how much

  • work actually goes into a movie like this.

  • MARCELLUS: Let's talk about it!

  • [SCREAMS]

  • [GASPS IN FRIGHT]

  • KENNETH: So they basically shot the movie on 20 sound stages

  • at the same time.

  • MARCELLUS: Uh-huh.

  • KENNETH: They had about eight camera crews,

  • 20 to 30 lights was lighting up each scene.

  • MARCELLUS: Wow.

  • KENNETH: And then it was like 13 artists working at a time.

  • OK, at the end of one week, that was just one minute of film.

  • MARCELLUS: A week? KENNETH: That's it.

  • MARCELLUS: That's how long it takes for my family to cook

  • Thanksgiving dinner, Kenneth. KENNETH: I remember.

  • I was there. [MARCELLUS LAUGHS]

  • MARCELLUS: But, just like my family,

  • these are very patient people.

  • The detail is everything, and that's

  • what really blows my mind.

  • The costumes, the sets, and all of the facial expressions.

  • These characters blink, and they have to do that by hand.

  • KENNETH: Absolutely. MARCELLUS: And it's so perfect.

  • It looks so fluid. KENNETH: Mm-hmm.

  • MARCELLUS: And it looks like they're really moving.

  • And I also love the little fact of how small their feet are.

  • I don't know if anyone caught that.

  • KENNETH: (LAUGHS)

  • Why you worried about the size of they feet?

  • MARCELLUS: I just love it!

  • KENNETH: OK, Marcellus, look.

  • These models are amazing.

  • MARCELLUS: Yeah!

  • KENNETH: Like, Jack Skellington apparently

  • had around 400 different heads.

  • MARCELLUS: Wow.

  • KENNETH: And Sally had 10 heads, each head making 11

  • different facial expressions.

  • And that's how they capture her emotions.

  • MARCELLUS: Can't do the math on that.

  • KENNETH: Oh, I did.

  • It's 110 faces.

  • Now I can't even make 110 different facial expressions.

  • But my mama sure could when she was mad at me.

  • MARCELLUS: I know exactly what you're thinking.

  • [KENNETH LAUGHS]

  • MARCELLUS: But look at this.

  • Look at the characters in this shot.

  • They made over 200 puppets for this movie,

  • and not just Jack Skellington, but all of them

  • literally had their own hinges.

  • That's what makes them so posable.

  • KENNETH: Everything that moves in this movie

  • has to be so thought out.

  • You see right here, Santa's list?

  • MARCELLUS: I see it.

  • KENNETH: It looks like it's just a little sheet of paper,

  • but it's actually two sheets of paper

  • with tin foil in the middle to make

  • it easy to shape, like a little tin foil sandwich!

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, you are making me hungry,

  • and you know I love sandwiches, and it's lunchtime.

  • [KENNETH LAUGHS]

  • KENNETH: I know. Oh, oh, oh, oh.

  • MARCELLUS: That bathtub also scares me,

  • because when I was younger, we had a bathtub with legs

  • like that, too, and I thought it could walk.

  • [KENNETH LAUGHS]

  • KENNETH: You didn't want to take a bath.

  • MARCELLUS: I did not want to take a bath because--

  • KENNETH: You thought it was going to walk out.

  • MARCELLUS: Yes, and I'm looking at this,

  • and I'm like, oh, my gosh.

  • Triggered!

  • KENNETH: I'll bet your mama was like, boy,

  • if you don't get in that tub! - Lock!

  • - Shock! - Barrel!

  • MARCELLUS: Oh!

  • I love the trick-or-treaters.

  • Do you know who the voices are?

  • KENNETH: I know you're going to tell me!

  • MARCELLUS: Catherine O'Hara, who voices Sally--

  • KENNETH: Hi, Sally.

  • MARCELLUS: Also voices Shock.

  • - And we thought you didn't like us.

  • MARCELLUS: Barrel was voiced by Danny

  • Elfman, the film's composer.

  • - Whatever you say, Jack.

  • MARCELLUS: And Lock is Paul Reubens.

  • - Wouldn't dream of it, Jack. [TRICK-OR-TREATERS LAUGH]

  • KENNETH: First of all, Catherine O'Hara--

  • love her. MARCELLUS: Brilliant.

  • KENNETH: Paul Reubens, love him.

  • MARCELLUS: Mmm.

  • KENNETH: And I am amazed by Danny Elfman.

  • MARCELLUS: Right?

  • We have to talk more about Danny Elfman.

  • KENNETH: Absolutely!

  • Danny. Elfman.

  • Legend.

  • MARCELLUS: Danny Elfman is, of course,

  • the film's composer, and the singing

  • voice of Jack Skellington.

  • So usually, musicals like this start with the finished script

  • and then they fit the songs in.

  • But in the case of this movie, the music actually

  • helped influence the story.

  • Danny Elfman said that he and Tim started

  • with the skeleton of a story--

  • no pun intended. [KENNETH GIGGLES]

  • MARCELLUS: And developed the tone of the movie

  • through the songwriting, Kenneth.

  • Oh!

  • This was so fun.

  • I love this movie so much.

  • KENNETH: Thanks for watching, everybody.

  • And don't forget to check out "Tim

  • Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas," now

  • streaming on Disney+.

  • MARCELLUS: Yes.

  • Thank you for watching.

  • Take care of yourselves and the planet.

  • Make sure to subscribe and like this video.

  • KENNETH: Yes, and tell us in the comments

  • below what movies or shows you want us to deep-dive next!

  • Thanks, Marcellus.

  • Now you can go eat your lunch!

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, believe me.

  • I will. Marcellus and Kenneth, signing off.

  • KENNETH: What kind of sandwich did you make?

  • MARCELLUS: Don't worry about it.

  • KENNETH: Did you make enough sandwich for me?

  • MARCELLUS: Nope.
