Book of the Mouse Club

Nov 22, 2022

Ghouls and ghosts of every age wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Come with Courtney and Emily and you will meet Sally Skellington the Pumpkin Queen of Halloween. In the episode, your hosts discuss the Disney Press fiction release “Long Live the Pumpkin Queen” by Shea Ernshaw. The story begins right where the Nightmare Before Christmas left off, with Jack and Sally pursuing their relationship. As a newlywed, Sally is trying to find her place in Halloween town as she quickly rose in status from being a common ragdoll town resident to the Pumpkin Queen. While searching the woods, Sally comes across a door separate from the grove of doors leading to other holiday realms. When Sally accidentally opens the door to Dreamland and unleashes the Sandman, she will once again have to save Halloween town and all of the realms to reawaken from their dreamless sleep. Courtney and Emily discuss Sally’s character development in this sequel and debate if Nightmare before Christmas is a Halloween or Christmas movie.
