Buena Vista/Disney have announced a March 9, 2012 date for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, is feature length version of his short film from his early days. The 1984 short is a parody of the 1931 film Frankenstein based on Mary Shelley’s book of the same name. The story tells of a man who brings his dog back to life after it is killed by a car. Back in March it was reported that the script is completed and that “the puppets are ready”. I’m still hoping he makes this instead of The Addams Family.
