Synopsis

Jack Skellington is the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, a place where residents are employed to scare humans witless every Halloween. Jack, despite being idolised for his scaring prowess, is bored of his lot in life. One day he takes a stroll into the woods and discovers several doorways, each leading to a different human holiday. He enters into the world of Christmas, and is so overwhelmed by the fun and goodwill that he decides to embark on a plan to kidnap santa and do Christmas himself, Halloween Town style!

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
