Beyond The Box Set

250 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

What's this? What's this?!

Why, it's the latest festive episode of Beyond The Box Set, in which we're pitching sequels for Disney's ghoulish stop-motion classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Released in 1993, the movie tells the story of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween-town who becomes disillusioned with his annual duties and decides to take a crack at Christmas instead. 

Tune into this episode to hear our thoughts on the twisted mind of Tim Burton, the joy of terrorising small children, the disturbing implications of Thanksgiving-town, plus drinking games, listener submissions and much more...


Beyond The Box Set is a weekly movie podcast with a twist. Every week, we take a look back at a classic standalone movie, and compete to pitch sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. We've been featured in The Guardian, by Spotify and on the front page of Apple Podcasts - so check us out!
