Though it underperformed at the box office, most critics agree that Tim Burtonâ€˜s Frankenweenie was the directorâ€™s best film in years. Combining his love of the macabre with childlike wonder, heart and humor, itâ€™ll surely be a home video discovery for fresh audiences for years to come. That process will start on January 15 when the DVD and Blu-ray hit shelves and one of the highlights of the disc is a brand new short film called Captain Sparky vs the Flying Saucers.
The short was written by Frankenweenie co-producer Derek Frey and will run two minutes and 20 seconds. Thatâ€™s all the information thatâ€™s available at the moment but it sounds promising. (Hopefully this will be one of the short films the character Victor makes using his dog, Sparky.)
