Walt Disney Pictures has two new 360 degree tours on tap for the set of Frankenweenie, Tim Burton’s latest animated feature in which a young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
I’ve gone on record saying that I’m hopeful for this, even though Burton has been in a bit of a (creative, not financial) rut recently. Sure, it looks very much its composed of stock Burton aesthetics, but the stop motion technique renders them in a more striking manner than his recent live action work does. And the sets that I saw – reassembled at comic-con – were striking.
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), while Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer were later added.
Frankenweenie jumps into your lap on October 5th. Head inside for the first tour!
