VIDEO: Tim Burton‘s "Frankenweenie" Film Trailer

Burton remakes the movie that got him fired from Disney in the '80s

Tim Burton remade Planet of the Apes and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and now he's remade his own Frankenweenie, a 1984 featurette about a boy named Victor Frankenstein who reanimates his dead weenie dog, notable for resulting in Disney firing Burton.


Burton's new Frankenweenie will be a full-length, black and white stop-motion picture. He directs the movie, scheduled to hit theaters October 5th, 2012.


The plot is described as such:

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.
