According to Billboard, Billie Eilish will play the iconic character in Disney’s live-to-film concert experience of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The 19-year-old singer will perform alongside musician and producer Danny Elfman, who will reprise his role as Jack Skellington, King of the Pumpkin Patch, for the occasion.
In the show, Eilish will perform “Sally’s Song” with a full orchestra under the direction of famed conductor John Mauceri.
“I’m overjoyed that Billie has decided to join the nightmare crew!” According to the publication, Elfman said in a statement. “This is going to be a real treat (rather than a trick)!”
On October 29 and 31, the show will take place at L.A.’s Banc of California Stadium for two nights. The film’s release date has yet to be confirmed.
Grammy winner Weird Al Yankovic plays the character Lock in the Nightmare Before Christmas remake. In addition, Ken Page reprises his role as Oogie Boogie from the 1993 picture.
Burton has long been a fan of Eilish’s, and the two are friends. In May, the 63-year-old filmmaker appeared in a Vogue video in which prominent fans addressed her questions about her life and music.
In July, the seven-time Grammy winner released Happier Than Ever, her second studio album. Finneas O’Connell, her brother, assisted in the production of the album, which she described as “the most rewarding, most satisfying, most meaningful experience I’ve ever had with my music.”
The “Bad Guy” singer had been chosen the youngest Met Gala co-chair in the event’s history just two months previously. Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman, all members of the Gen Z generation, also assisted in hosting the event.
