Watch: Disney Releases A First Trailer For Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’


We already know that director Tim Burton is readying the release of his big screen adaptation of Dark Shadows but did you know he also has an animated film coming out this year as well? Burton has teamed with Disney for a new animated film titled Frankenweenie that, you might be able to guess from the title, is about a reanimated dog brought back to life. The animation has a very The Nightmare Before Christmas feel to it … and will be presented in black and white. Click below for your first look at Frankenweenie.

Awww … this looks classic Tim Burton. Yes, the story seems predictable but … is it? I’m a big fan of Burton’s animated films (his live-action, meh, are hit or miss) so I’m down with this. What do y’all think … does this look like a film that interests you?


  • It looks cute… but I’m more excited about ParaNorman.
