Frankenweenie 1984-2012

Frankenweenie (1984) Still - Directed by Tim Burton

Oh no he's not R.I.P., he's rising from the grave on Oct. 5, 2012

Woo-hoo!  Tim Burton is coming back to stop motion animation.

From the Frankenweenie short to a full-length stop motion feature, Frankenweenie will be back or at least properly released on the big screen for the first time on October 5, 2012.

And believe it or not, the production also marks one of the rare occasions in which Johnny Depp is not part of the production, but it does bring back some of the old crew from of the 1984 Beetlejuice (Beetlejuice, Beetle… -- actually, let's play it safe).

The movie has as executive producer Don Hahn, a man that is highly regarded in the animation industry as a man with a passion for animation, and his track record shows it.  He started his career in animation as as an assistant animator on Pete's Dragon (1977).

We in the office are really looking forward to this new creation.

DID YOU KNOW THAT: Frankenweenie is based on the original Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley.
