Aha... Een verklaring! Geen CGI 3D (hoewel ze dat toch wel doen, als ze toch bezig zijn, denk ik...) maar holografisch 3D! Nightmare gaat terug de bioscopen in, met 3D effecten (brilletjes en zo...)
A Nightmare in 3-D on October 20

Walt Disney Pictures will release a digitally remastered version of 1993's stop-motion animated classic Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas on October 20th.
"Nightmare" marks the second digital 3-D theatrical release from Disney after Chicken Little did banner business last year in digital 3-D on 84 U.S. screens at 81 locations. The digital 3-D box office returns outperformed the standard screenings nearly 3-to-1.
Burton and "Nightmare" director Henry Selick are involved in the digital remastering of the film and were "very cheered by the news" that Disney wanted to release the movie in 3-D, according to Selick.
"When visitors came to visit the set of 'Nightmare Before Christmas,' they were always amazed by the intricate sets and beautiful puppets -- that they actually existed in miniature," Selick said. "It was disappointing to see this effect lost on film. By remastering for 3-D, I hope that some of this magic can be captured and shown to the audience in a way they've never seen before."
Selick is directing Laika Entertainment's Coraline, starring Dakota Fanning, in Portland, Ore. Coraline represents the first stop-motion animated film to be shot stereoscopically with a dual digital camera rig for digital 3-D exhibition.
"Nightmare" is in the early stages of being digitally scanned and converted into 3-D by the computer-graphics group at Industrial Light & Magic.
The 3-D passive glasses that will be handed out to audiences at "Nightmare" screenings will be appropriately ghoulish and collectible.
Ik ben behoorlijk opgelucht!
Nu maar hopen dat dit ook in Nederland mogelijk is tegen die tijd!
DIT is pas een film voor IMAX!
