Selick is coming from an extended hiatus as he hasn’t directed a movie since 2009 coralline. his new movie, Wendell and Wild, Starring Keegan-Michael Key and co-writer Jordan Peele, it focuses on two demon brothers who hope to return to the land of the living. In response to the film, critics welcomed Selick’s return and gave the film critical acclaim, with many praising the focus on visual and comedic craft. Perhaps Wendell and Wild and the release of this Nightmare sing-along can pay more attention to the idea of creating new Nightmare before Christmas material.
