Frankenweenie shares five more pieces of character art with accompanying descriptions
In June the major characters of Tim Burton's upcoming FRANKENWEENIE were each highlighted with art and information about who, how, and why they are. And here we are a little over a month later, with the folks behind FRANKENWEENIE seeing fit to release five more bits of character art and information.
Mr. Burgemeister (voiced by Martin Short, who also voices Victor's father) is the Frankenstein’s next-door neighbor and Mayor of New Holland. A crotchety fuss-bucket, he is fanatical about his garden and can’t stand Sparky or anything else that threatens the perfection of his tulips. Mr. Burgemeister also asserts his authority over his niece Elsa Van Helsing by making her the reluctant star of his New Holland Dutch Day celebration.
Nassor (also voiced by Short) is highly intelligent, serious and intense. He takes a darker, more doomsday view on life than the other kids in New Holland. Nassor is instantly sceptical of the rumours surrounding Victor’s experiments with electricity, but once convinced, is zealous in his attempts to obtain Victor’s secrets.
Mr. Rzykruski (voiced Martin Landau) is the new science teacher at New Holland Elementary School. He has a thick, Eastern European accent and a unique way of explaining things. He connects with his students, but parents misunderstand his passionate teaching style. Mr. Rzykruski serves as a mentor and inspiration to Victor, teaching him that science can do both good and bad things and that if a scientist does not put his heart into his experiment, there could be disastrous consequences.
Weird Girl (voiced by Catherine O'Hara, who also voices Victor's mother) doesn’t fit in well with the other kids. She delivers ominous pronouncements in a monotone voice with an unnerving stare. Her constant companion is her fluffy white cat Mr. Whiskers, whose unblinking gaze matches her own. The other kids give them a wide berth—especially when Weird Girl rambles about Mr. Whiskers’ dreams.
Edgar “E” Gore (Atticus Shaffer) is a needy misfit who doesn’t have friends but is desperate to be Victor’s partner for the science fair. In his attempts to be accepted ‘E’ tends to mess things up and often fails to think before he speaks. Even though ‘E’ promises not to tell Victor’s secret, he accidentally spills the beans.
So are you sold on Burton's latest? You have until October 5th to make up your mind.
