Frankenweenie Trailer. Tim Burton‘s Frankenweenie (2012) teaser trailer stars Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, and Conchata Ferrell. Frankenweenie‘s plot synopsis: “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.”
About Frankenweenie‘s road to the big screen:
Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is a great example of how tastes and trends change. When the young director made the first live-action black and white version of the story for Disney in , the company fired him, saying the film was too scary for a family audience.
Now, almost thirty years later, strange and macabre stories are more powerful in popular culture than ever, thanks in part to the ground laid by the features Burton directed after Frankenweenie. And Disney enjoyed one of its greatest successes of recent years in Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. So Frankenweenie became the Burton/Disney mulligan, as the director has now overseen a feature-length retelling of the comic remake/parody of Frankenstein, this time rendered in black and white stop motion animation.
Frankenweenie also stars Atticus Shaffer, Tom Kenny, Charlie Tahan, Robert Capron, and James Hiroyuki Liao.
