Frankenweenie Remake Is Moving Along

The full length adaption of Tim Burton's Frankenweenie has been in the works for a very long time. Back when Burton did the original short in 1984, he had wanted it to be a full length stop-motion film like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride. While the release date of October 5th 2012 is still a long wait, the film has gotten a logo (above) and 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.
Of course stop motion takes an incredibly long time, and with over 200 puppets in the film a lot of effort has to be put in to create just one scene.

Look for more Frankenweenie updates here as they're released. Until then, if you haven't seen the original short, you can watch it below:
