Check out a new IMAX poster for Frankenweenie
, a film that is sure to warm your hearts.
Presented by Disney, Frankenweenie is directed by Tim Burton
, produced by Burton and Allison Abbate, from a screenplay by John August, based on a screenplay by Lenny Ripps, based on an original idea by Tim Burton.
When Burton originally conceived the idea for the film he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984.
FRANKENWEENIE follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films Corps Bride
and The Nightmare Before Christmas
– both of which were nominated for Academy Awards
. The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder
(“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara
(“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short
(“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau
(“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”) and Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell.
Frankenweenie arrives in theaters on October 5, 2012.
