“I don’t understand why most Disney fans don’t consider The Nightmare Before Christmas a Disney Renaissance film. I know it’s stop-motion and not traditionally animated, but other than that it still meets the criteria: it’s a musical, it came out in the 1990’s, & it was a huge success both critically and commercially. Hopefully Disney fans in the future will start including Nightmare alongside films like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King in discussions.”
MOD NOTE: Check TNBC’s Disney Wiki page. The quote giving the reason why TNBC isn’t a Disney Animated Classic is at the bottom of the second paragraph.
