Tim Burton's Frankenweenie Poster Released - B&W 3D Stop Motion Movie to be released Oct 5th - Edited with new official trailer !

Disney just released the first poster for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie! This new version of Tim Burton' 1984 live action short will be a black and white 3-D stop-motion film, to be released October 5th in the U.S.

I remind you the storyline: " When young Victor's pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor's home-made monster movies) is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked "monster" wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor's neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky's still the good loyal friend he's always been.

More than 200 puppets and sets were created for Frankenweenie and 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). Several of the character names — Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister — were inspired by classic horror films.

Edited: Disney just released Frankenweenie trailer! Watch it below, it looks great!

I remember when Tim first showed Frankenweenie to Disney and how much I liked the concept. The Studio however though it was a little to far out back then. My how times and management change. Rusty

Both Johny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are not going to be in this new Tim Burton movie? That's something unusual!

By the way, I'm really looking forward to this one; I love a nightmare before Christmas, and most Tim Burton's movies...
