Retro Frankenweenie trailer arrives at SDCC

At this years San Diageo Comic Con fans were treated to a special version of the trailer for Frankenweenie, Tim Burtons dream animated project which looks like a return to form. The trailer showcases themes from the classic sci fi and horror movies of the 50’s and with a excellent cast this is looking like the animated hit of the year.


The film’s music is by Danny Elfman and the cast include: Charlie Tahan, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Landau, Martin Short, Robert Capron and Atticus Shaffer.

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” will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.
