We’ve been talking about Frankenweenie for a while, but we are finally getting our first chance to take a look at the characters in action. This stop motion adaptation of Tim Burton’s classic short film has a stellar voice cast including: Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin Landau.
I’m definitely still excited about the movie, but it still looks like he’s just re-using his old character designs from Family Dog.
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.
