Now this is a kiddie flick we can sink our fangs into!
The teaser for Disney's FRANKENWEENIE has just gone online, and we've got it for you below. Based on this short sample, the movie looks like a true labor of love for its creator, Tim Burton, who brings his patented mix of dark comedy and ghoulish fantasy to what is seemingly a really beautifully animated movie for kids. Don't take my word for it, though; watch for yourself!
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.
Mark it down folks: OCTOBER 5th is when Sparky comes aliiiiiive!
