Two new clips and in depth featurette arrive for Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’

Tim Burton’s new animated film for Disney, Frankenweenie, arrives in UK cinemas on 17th October. As the promotional material continues to grow, today we have two brand new clips and featurette to share with you. The first clip features Victor Frankenstein being blackmailed by his pal Edgar,while the second see’s Victor having to deal with a “bigger problem”. However it is the featurette which is the most exciting thing here. Granted it is a little spoilery, but it shows off plenty of how the film was made, and delves a little into the ideas for the story itself. Enjoy!

Frankenweenie is based on Burton’s own 1984 short film of the same name, and as you can see from the trailer, bringing Sparky back to life has some dreadful and hilarious consequences.

The film will be released by Walt Disney Pictures on 17th October, and Burton has enlisted the voice talents of a number of actors who also worked with him on The Corpse Bride. Among the names attached here are Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Landau, Atticus Shaffer, Tom Kenny, Charlie Tahan and Conchata Ferrell.


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
