Walt Disney Pictures has released the first clip from 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.
The clip looks amazing and the stop motion is gorgeous but the jury’s still out on Burton’s main weakness as of late – storytelling. Here’s hoping!
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 clip!
