More like Frankenween-weeeeeeeeeeee!! AMIRITE? It’s the first trailer for Tim Burton’s doggie-Frankenstein film, Frankenweenie. A little history: Burton was fired from Disney back in 1984 for making a live-action version of this film (It starred Shelley Duvall, Daniel Stern and Barret Oliver [Bastian from The Neverending Story]). It was deemed too scary for kids and Burton didn’t really fit in with Disney’s cookie-cutter image at the time. The short wasn’t released at the time but Burton of course went on to become a huge star for just that type of work and had a healthy relationship with Disney down the road. This new, stop-motion version of Frankenweenie stars the voices of Charlie Tahan, Martin Landau, Martin Short, Winona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara. It opens in 3D, October 5.
