Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ Details and Logo

From director Tim Burton comes “Frankenweenie,” a tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring him back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn canine but Sparky gets out and Victor’s classmates, teachers and the entire town all learn about Victor’s monstrous creation.

A stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D. Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film. The release date is set for October 5, 2012
