The role is almost so perfect that casting Billie Eilish as Sally the rag doll almost seems like an insult. But yes, the moody teen (she’s 19 till December) will take on the role.
Billie is joining Disney’s live-to-film concert experience of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas as the beloved character, it has been reported.
She’s 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.
