First Look At Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie

Disney have today announded a release date of March 9th, 2012 for Tim Burton’s stop-motion and feature-length remake of Frankenweenie. Based upon Burton’s own 1984 live action short, the film will tell the story of a young boy named Victor who brings his dog Sparky back from the dead. Next time around there’s a lot more characters and… I’m going to invisitext a spoiler:

>>>And there’s also a lot more animals being brought back from the dead than just one pup.<<<

Coincidentally, today is also the day a Little Bleeder sent me an e-mail containing two very interesting pictures. The first is a photo of the Victor and Sparky puppets alongside some concept art for the film; the second is a better look at one of the pieces of concept art.

The film’s puppets have been constructed by England’s Mackinnon and Saunders, who have previously collaborated with Burton on The Corpse Bride and his MOMA commercial. They’re amongst the best fabricators in the whole stop motion business, and are reputed to be absolute geniuses with the tiny skeletal armatures inside each puppet.
