Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ is Actually a Remake of One of His Live-Action Short Films
Tim Burton’s new Disney movie is a black and white, 3-D stop-motion animated movie about a boy who uses science to resurrect his dead dog Sparky…kind of like the original ‘Frankenstein’.
It has the voices of Winona Ryder, Martin Landau, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara…and watch out for an appearance by the legendary Christopher Lee as Dracula.
It’s actually a big budget remake of a 30-minute short film Tim Burton made back in 1984 that WASN’T animated.

Here’s the trailer for the animated version that comes out this weekend:
