Between The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus, Disney sure knows how to make an iconic Halloween movie. When it comes to the spooky holiday, Jack Skellington is a well-known, beloved character—and might inspire a themed Halloween recipe or two. The Home Depot is making the skeleton larger than ever with its new 13-foot animated Jack Skellington decoration.

What is the Jack Skellington decoration?

Standing at a monstrous 13 feet tall—that’s even bigger than The Home Depot’s viral 12-foot skeleton!—the Jack Skellington decoration will make a serious statement on your front lawn. The Pumpkin King wears his classic pinstriped suit with an oversized bat-inspired bowtie. Its slender frame was meticulously designed with the Disney team to be proportional to the actual character, so it truly looks like the real deal.

The animated Halloween decoration plays three melodies from Jack’s Lament, a song from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack Skellington’s face is lit up by color-changing LED lights, so it’ll be visible even as dark October evenings creep in. When its motion sensor is activated, the animatronic’s head and jaw move and it recites lines from the famous film. As if it couldn’t get any more life-like, you have the option of swapping out his face plate to go from friendly to sinister, depending on your Halloween vibe. Just don’t be surprised when your house becomes the favorite among trick-or-treaters!

In addition to the Pumpkin King, The Home Depot is selling other Disney pieces to display outdoors this Halloween. For Hocus Pocus fans, there’s the 5-foot LED inflatable featuring the Sanderson sisters. Mickey and Minnie got a spooky makeover with 3.5-foot LED inflatables. And a 7-foot LED Ursula inflatable will delight The Little Mermaid fanatics. But if you want to keep The Nightmare Before Christmas theme going, shop the 13.5-foot Oogie Boogie archway, 3.5-foot LED Oogie Boogie inflatable and 4.3-foot LED Zero inflatable.

How to Set Up the Jack Skellington Decoration

Built to stand up to the outdoor elements, the 13-foot Jack Skellington takes about 40 minutes and two people to put together. Its animated features come to life once the animatronic is plugged into an outlet, and it weighs a total of 44 pounds. The Halloween decoration comes with detailed instructions for easy assembly and operation, and there’s a video available online to make the process even easier.
