The stop motion animated film is based off of Tim Burtonâ€™s live-action short from the 1980s, at the beginning of his film career.
Hereâ€™s the official synopsis:
From creative genius Tim Burton (â€œAlice in Wonderland,â€ The Nightmare Before Christmasâ€) comes â€œFrankenweenie,â€ a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to lifeâ€”with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victorâ€™s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new â€œleash on lifeâ€ can be monstrous.Â
A stop-motion animated film, â€œFrankenweenieâ€ was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.Â
In Tim Burtonâ€™s â€œFrankenweenieâ€ young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
The voice cast included Catherine Oâ€™Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder.
â€œFrankenweenieâ€ will be in theaters on October 5th.

Iâ€™ve also included a brief red carpet interview with director Tim Burton from CinemaCon earlier this year, in which he discussed a little about this project.
