Set in a world where every holiday has its own special land, this film follows the misguided passion of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved Pumpkin King, who oversees the creation of all the ghoulish delights, frights and surprises that his holiday traditionally exports to the “real world.” Bored with the same annual routine, Jack finds a new purpose in life when he accidentally stumbles upon the entryway to Christmastown and becomes instantly enraptured with the bright colours, toys, decorations and warm spirit that he discovers there. He returns home obsessed with bringing Christmas under his control and enlists his loyal townspeople to help him become a substitute Santa and create a “new and improved” version of the holiday. But even the best laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously astray as Jack discovers all too soon.
