Tim Burton's Frankenweenie
We've known it's been coming for quite a while, but people at the Disney D23 Expo got to see some footage from 'Frankenweenie' the feature-length, stop motion, animated feature directed by Tim Burton. Based on his live-action '80s short film of the same name, the new movie expands on the plot to chart the life of outcast lad Victor Frankenstein and Sparky, the dog he adores.
"After unexpectedly losing his beloved pooch, 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."
