Disney Pictures have released an official synopsis for Tim Burton's feature adaptation of his earlier short film Frankenweenie. The film will reunite Burton with Winona Ryder and Martin Landau. Will it bring back the real Tim Burton we know and love? or will this evil twin continue to make rubbish like Alice in Wonderland? Hit the jump to check out the details.
"In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience. From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. 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."
Frankenweenie hits theaters October 5th, 2012.
