December marks 25 years of collaboration between music composer Danny Elfman and film director Tim Burton. The two first worked together on Burton's movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure in 1985 and were fast friends from then on, with Elfman composing the music for all but two of Burton's projects since then. Among Elfman's most famous works are the scores to Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Batman Returns, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow, and Alice in Wonderland.
In celebration of this iconic friendship Warner Bros is releasing a 25th Anniversary Music Box that contains more than 19 hours of music including fan-requested expansions of famous soundtracks and previously unreleased music. The package also includes CD art by Burton, a USB flash drive with MP3s of all the songs, and a DVD featuring an exclusive conversation between Burton and Elfman. The music box will be released this December in a limited edition of 1000 numbered units. $499.99
