Trailer for ‘Frankenweenie’ Debuts and Looks Very Much Like a Tim Burton Movie

Frankenweenie
Walt Disney Pictures

In 1984 Tim Burton released a live action short film called ‘Frankenweenie,’ starring Shelley Duvall and Daniel Stern. It told the story of a young Victor Frankenstein, who reanimates his beloved dog after the pooch gets killed in a hit and run accident. 28 years later and Burton has taken that concept and developed it into a full, animated feature for Disney.

The first trailer is now and it seems to capture Burton’s classic, adorably spooky aesthetic rather well.

While ‘Frankenweenie’ worked just fine as a standalone short, the feature length film seeks to expand the world and the story a bit more and if the trailer is any indication, this might be the classic Burton we’ve been longing for. The film features the voice work of old Burton pals Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara, as well as Martin Landau and Martin Short. For those keeping track at home, that’s two Martins and zero Johnny Depps.

‘Frankenweenie’ will hit theaters this October, but you can get your fill of Tim Burton fun this May with ‘Dark Shadows.’
