Early this morning, musician and composer Danny Elfman stopped by Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland park to record this special reading from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” A longtime collaborator with Tim Burton, Elfman created the film’s music and also provided the singing voice for Jack Skellington.

Elfman, a four-time Oscar nominee, will be performing in the Los Angeles area in just a few weeks, live in concert featuring music from the films of Tim Burton. The Disney Parks Blog video team was able to catch up with Elfman during his visit – check back soon for our interview with him at Haunted Mansion Holiday.


  • I love this ride! How great!

  • What is this?! This is incredible, Erin! Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is my absolute favorite movie, and Danny Elfman is such an integral part of it. I can’t wait to see the interview with him. Thank you for sharing this treat with us! 😀


  • Can he perform in Florida too… Would be awesome to see Danny Elfman in a concert on Halloween again like back in the day at Irvine Meadows.

  • I soooo love Danny Elfman. Can’t wait to see the interview. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  • How FUN. It looks like Mr. Elfman was at the park VERY early for this taping. Thank you.

  • I’m not sure I can ever forgive Tim for not casting Danny as the voice actor

    Connie – Or very late 😉
