Watch Two New FRANKENWEENIE Clips
Watch these new clips from the upcoming FRANKENWEENIE. They’ll leave you cackling like Dracula’s minion Renfield. For the die-hard Movie Geeks, many of you will recognize the classic horror films which inspired several of the character names such as Victor Frankenstein, Elsa Van Helsing, Mayor Burgemeister, and Edgar “E” Gore. The Animation Geeks will appreciate the fact that over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
When Tim Burton originally conceived the idea for FRANKENWEENIE he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984. FRANKENWEENIE follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films CORPSE BRIDE and THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS – both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®. The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).
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 was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D. The talented voice cast includes: 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 a screenplay by Lenny Ripps, based on an original idea by Tim Burton. FRANKENWEENIE releases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.
