Yeah, sorry about the surly headline. Just got back from seeing Fright Night, and my mood is kind of foul. Anyway, breaking news out of the Disney Expo! Prepare to feel the Earth move as you gaze in wonder at the Frankenweenie title card.

The animated film is based on Burton’s 1984 short film about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner after it is struck by a car.

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), along with Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer.

Look for the flick in theatres on October 5th, 2012.

Synopsis
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.

A stop-motion animated film, ‘Frankenweenie’ will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.

Look for the flick in theatres on October 5th, 2012.
