Tim Burton‘s latest collaboration with Disney, the animated comedy Frankenweenie, has finally had its first poster released via Facebook and it’s nothing shy of what we expected.
The image features a dog of sorts peaking out from behind a grave in what can only be assumed to be a pet cemetery. Lightning is striking down on the grave which ironically has the name ‘Sparky’ carved in it.
Frankenweenie is about a boy named Victor who unexpectedly loses his beloved dog. He then goes all scientific and brings his beloved pet back to life. But, a failure to keep the dog under lock and key leads to a monstrous tur of events that are inspired by the classic tale of Frankenstein.
Personally, I can’t wait to see another Burton stop-motion animated feature hit the big screen. Movie after movie, Burton nails it and hopefully this will be another cult classic to add to my collection! Plus, this is a whole new take on a classic story and no one does freaky cartoon re-creations better than Burton.
The film features the voices of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, and Conchata Ferrell.
Frankenweenie opens in theaters on October 5th!
