I am a HUGE fan of Tim Burton and he is set to return to stop motion animation with his new movie Frankenweenie.
Now we are going to have to wait until October to check out this black and white 3D movie but it does promise to be one of the animation movie events of 2012.
Burton favourites Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara are back to lend their voices to the movie while Martin Short and Martin Landau are also on the cast list.
And we have some new character images for you to take a look at. Meet Bob, Bob’s Mum, Elsa Van Helsing, Mr & Mrs Frankenstein, Persephone, Sparky, Toshiaki and Victor.
Frankenweenie is 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.
Frankenweenie is released 17th October.
