Billie Eilish Cast as Sally in Live-to-Film Version of The Nightmare Before Christmas
Just call her Sally!
The "Happier Than Ever" singer, 19, is set to appear alongside musician and producer Danny Elfman, who is reprising his role as Jack Skellington, King of the Pumpkin Patch, for the event.
Eilish will perform a rendition of "Sally's Song" in the show, accompanied by a full orchestra directed by acclaimed conductor John Mauceri.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to have Billie joining up with the nightmare crew!" Elfman said in a statement, per the outlet. "This will be a real treat (not a trick)!"
The show will run for two nights at L.A.'s Banc of California Stadium on Oct. 29 and Oct. 31. A release date for the film has yet to be announced.
Also starring in The Nightmare Before Christmas revival is Grammy winner Weird Al Yankovic as the character Lock. Ken Page is also returning to his role as Oogie Boogie from the original 1993 film.
Eilish has been a longtime fan of Burton — and the feeling is mutual. In May, the director, 63, made an appearance in her video for Vogue, in which famous fans asked her questions about life and music.
The seven-time Grammy winner dropped her second studio album Happier Than Ever in July. Her brother Finneas O'Connell helped produce the record, which she called "the most fulfilling most satisfying and profound experience I've ever had with my music."
