There’s always going to be something fascinating when it comes to Tim Burton, whether he’s building new worlds or reviving old ones. In his upcoming stop-motion animation film Frankenweenie, Burton does both. Based on a short he created at the beginning of his career, the eccentric writer/director pays homage to the classic horror story Frankenstein, while bringing the black and white horror riff to new life (pun wildly intended.) With Frankenweenie, Burton creates is also creating a strange, but wonderful new reality where children can reunite with long lost pets.
We got a chance to check out the interactive Frankenweenie exhibit at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con which featured some classically spooky, yet sweet Burtonesque artwork that the anticipated film will have in store for moviegoers. Sit, heel, stay, check out what we saw from Frankenweenie at Comic-Con and on the set of the movie. Frankenweenie comes to life in theaters on October 5.
