About Jack Skellington in brief
Jack Skellington is the main protagonist of the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas. He is voiced by Chris Sarandon. Danny Elfman provided Jack’s singing voice in the original film and soundtrack album, with Sarandon providing Jack’ssing voice in subsequent productions. The character is a popular design on bags, hats, clothing, umbrellas, belt buckles, pet collars and other items. Jack is the patron spirit of Halloween, portrayed as being on par with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny within his own holiday. As a living skeleton, he is supernatural and can remove parts of his body without harm, as is often demonstrated for comic relief. He follows the formula of a tragic hero, because he yearns for another side of life, despite all his fame and talent. He has been shown to have an extreme hatred for Oogie Boogie as was proven when he spoke of this plan to Lock, Shock, and Barrel. The official film soundtrack CD contains an epilogue not in the film, stating that Santa returned to Halloween Town to visit Jack, where he discovered that Jack had \”four or five skeleton children at hand\” who play together in a xylophone band. Jack sings in this game as well, speaking and singing voice for both the speaking andsing voice for Jack Skellingtons in Christmas Before Christmas and Jack Skeleton in the Game of the Year: The Nightmare before Christmas, released on November 25, 2013.
The game is available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and costs $9.99 (£7.99) with no in-game purchase required, or $10 (£8.99 with in-store purchase). Jack is portrayed as inept to some degree in the game, as he dances, fights, and attacks OogieBoogie’s minions to attack Oogie Man’s minions. He also has a ghost dog named Zero for a pet, who has a small glowing nose that looks like a jack-o’-lantern. Jack’s basic nature is impulsiveness. He does not seem to register contradictory information. He proves that love can be a part of his nature by calling Sally his \”Dearest Friend\”, telling Sally that they were meant to be together, embracing his future with her and embracing her. The only one who understands Jack’s feelings is a lonely ragdoll named Sally, who overhears his singing monologue and feels she can relate to his situation. While his intentions are not malicious, Jack does not understand the true spirit of Christmas.
