Check Out New FRANKENWEENIE Characters Photos – In Theaters October 5, 2012!!
Disney Pictures has released a new batch of character images and descriptions from FRANKENWEENIE. Click HERE to see the posters from Tim Burton’s heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog.
MAYOR BURGEMEISTER (voiced by Martin Short)
Mr. Burgemeister is the Frankenstein’s next-door neighbor and Mayor of New Holland. A crotchety fuss-bucket, he is fanatical about his garden and can’t stand Sparky or anything else that threatens the perfection of his tulips. Mr. Burgemeister also asserts his authority over his niece Elsa Van Helsing by making her the reluctant star of his New Holland Dutch Day celebration.
EDGAR “E” GORE (voiced by Atticus Shaffer)
Edgar “E” Gore is a needy misfit who doesn’t have friends but is desperate to be Victor’s partner for the science fair. In his attempts to be accepted ‘E’ tends to mess things up and often fails to think before he speaks. Even though ‘E’ promises not to tell Victor’s secret, he accidentally spills the beans.
MR. RZYKRUSKI (voiced by Martin Landau)
Mr. Rzykruski is the new science teacher at New Holland Elementary School. He has a thick, Eastern European accent and a unique way of explaining things. He connects with his students; however, parents misunderstand his passionate teaching style. Mr. Rzykruski serves as a mentor and inspiration to Victor, teaching him that science can do both good and bad things and that if a scientist does not put his heart into his experiment, there could be disastrous consequences.
NASSOR (voiced by Martin Short)
Nassor is highly intelligent, serious and intense. He takes a darker, more doomsday view on life than the other kids in New Holland. Nassor is instantly skeptical of the rumors surrounding Victor’s experiments with electricity, but once convinced, he is zealous in his quest to obtain Victor’s secrets.
WEIRD GIRL (voiced by Catherine O’Hara)
Weird Girl doesn’t fit in well with the other kids in New Holland, but it’s easy to see why—she delivers ominous pronouncements in a monotone voice with an unnerving stare. Her constant companion is her fluffy, white cat Mr. Whiskers, whose unblinking gaze matches her own. The other kids give them a wide berth—especially when Weird Girl rambles about Mr. Whiskers’ dreams.
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.
A stop-motion animated film, FRANKENWEENIE was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D. The talented voice cast includes many Burton alums – Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder.
Presented by Disney, FRANKENWEENIE is directed by Tim Burton, produced by Tim Burton and Allison Abbate, from a screenplay by John August, based on an original idea by Tim Burton. FRANKENWEENIEreleases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.
