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.Tim Burton Burton told Entertainment Weekly:
“It just tries to keep that idea of a very, simple pure relationship. Mix that with the Frankenstein myth and it causes problems. It has its good side and repercussions. Ultimately, we try to go with the slightly more positive aspects of keeping that relationship going.”“Frankenweenie” is written by John August (Big Fish) and features the voices of Martin Landau (Mr. Rzykruski), Winona Ryder (Elsa van Helsing), Catherine O’Hara (Victor’s mother Susan), Martin Short, Tom Kenny and Conchata Ferrell. Frankenweenie will be in theaters on October 5th, 2012.
