First Poster for Tim Burton’s Stop-Motion Animated ‘Frankenweenie’

Tuesday, Feb 21, 2012

So far we’ve only seen a handful of photos for Tim Burton’s adaptation of his stop-motion animated short Frankenweenie featuring the voices of Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Tom Kenny and Martin Landau as various characters. Now we have the first moving image of sorts from the film in the form on an animated poster teasing the film’s fall release later this year. It’s cute and a bit dark all at the same time, something we’ve come to expect from Burton. Even though it’s an adaptation, it’s about as close to something original Burton has done as a director in a long time.

Disney is bringing Frankenweenie to theaters everywhere in 3D starting on October 5th, 2012 late this year.

‘Frankenweenie’ first look

Thursday, Oct 27, 2011

Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is shaping up to be an interesting mix of “Ewwwww!’s” as well as “Awwwww’s.”

His latest stop-motion gothic-fest (rendered in 1950s-style black-and-white as well as 3-D) tells the story of a little boy named Victor, who loves his pet dog Sparky more than anything in the world. Naturally — or rather, unnaturally — Victor decides to use his science kit to bring the pup back from the grave after an accident claims the pooch’s life. Continue reading ‘Frankenweenie’ first look

Voice Cast: Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer
Director: Tim Burton
Producers: Tim Burton, Allison Abbate

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.

In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
