Watch 2 clips from Tim Burton's Frankenweenie animation called Sparky is Alive and Edgar Knows
Featuring the voice talents of Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Landau and Martin Short, the animated Disney release directed by the legendary Tim Burton, finds theasters on October 5th.
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.
Did you know?:
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.
Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
Several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister— were inspired by classic horror films.
