Tim Burton Unlikely To Return to Work with Disney

Tim Burton Unlikely To Return to Work with Disney. Looks like we will never see a Nightmare Before Christmas sequel with Tim Burton involved. He will no longer work with Walt Disney Production after saying some less-than-flattering things about working with the Mouse.

According to Deadline, the director said while attending the Lumière Festival, he talked about his long relationship with Disney, where he began his career as a young animation artist.

He suggested that while occasional, under-the-radar individual projects might find a place at the studio, it was now mainly focused on Marvel, Pixar, and Stars Wars franchises.

“It’s gotten to be very homogenized, very consolidated. There’s less room for different types of things,” he said, adding he would never do a Marvel movie. “I can only deal with one universe, l can’t deal with a multi-universe.”

Burton said it was unlikely he would be returning to work with Disney any time soon following his experiences on his 2019 live-action reboot of Dumbo.

“My history is that I started out there. I was hired and fired several times throughout my career there. The thing about Dumbo is that’s why I think my days with Disney are done, I realized that I was Dumbo, that I was working in this horrible big circus and I needed to escape. That movie is quite autobiographical at a certain level,” he said.
