SDCC ’12: Highlights From The Frankenweenie Exhibit


Tim Burton’s full length movie based on his original short Frankenweenie had its moment to shine at Comic Con. The filmmaker brought some footage along with a new trailer. A full exhibit displaying some of the sets and characters models were showcased as well.

The film is about a boy who brings his dog back to live after it dies in an accident. It is a children’s spin of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. The move is entirely black and white and uses stop-motion animation, which means each of the puppets are shot one frame at a time.  Burton said “It’s nice to be able to shoot it this way. It’s like little sets, and you shoot it like a live-action film. The puppets are so tactile. They’re amazing to feel and to touch.

The voice talent consists of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, and Martin Landau, and The Middle’s Atticus Shaffer as Edgar. Here are a few highlights of the display showing off the sets and puppets as well as the new trailer with a very retro vibe. You can see Atticus Shaffer in attendance as well. The movie opens October 5th.
