Things We Saw Today: Hipster ThunderCats

Things We Saw Today

Snarf was actually a really obscure indie rock band from Portland that had really great live shows, but never recorded an album. But you weren’t expected to know that. (at The High Definite via BuzzFeed)

More tidbits from D23: Some official art was revealed for Tim Burton‘s next stop-motion feature, Frankenweenie, which was one of the first shorts he ever made that he’s turned into a full-length movie. Some footage from the movie was also shown, but it hasn’t made its way online. (at FEARnet)

Geeks of Doom also has its official synopsis:

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.

Bleeding Cool has art from Monsters University showing how Mike and Sully will look different as younger monsters.

Speaking of animation, I’ll bet you had no idea how influential the Beatles‘-inspired feature Yellow Submarine was in the animation industry. Brain Pickings has a closer look. (via Neatorama)

And here is a steampunk Robocop. Because it’s Sunday, and why the heck not? (at Technabob)
