ORLANDO, Fla – Walt Disney World gave their first look at their new upcoming "Not-So-Spooky Spectacular" fireworks show Friday.

Disney said the new state-of-the-art show, debuting during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween parties, will feature Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas." 

Jack will tell a "not-so-scary" story about how anything can happen on Halloween night.

Fireworks, lasers and special lighting effects will cast upon Cinderella's castle.

Disney leaders said on a blog that Jack's ghost dog, Zero, will carry the story along as Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy find themselves entering a mysterious and haunted house.

All four characters will encounter spooky things, like dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a number of Disney villains.

The theme park said the display was in advance of a 'exciting fall season'.
