Just a couple of days after announcing that an ‘Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition’ will tour the world, including stops at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with several additional behind-the-scenes photos from the film. A feature-length stop-motion remake of the original short film by Burton, Frankenweenie is 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 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.

The new behind-the-scenes images, which also include looks at both puppets and maquettes for Edgar Gore, Victor and Persephone,  have been added to the beginning of our gallery below:

The film stars: Charlie Tahan as Victor; Winona Ryder as Elsa; Martin Short as Edward Frankenstein, Mr. Bergemeister, Nassor, Victor’s Dad and Bob; Catherine O’Hara as Victor’s Mom, Gym Teacher and Weird Girl; Martin Landau as Mr. Rzykruski; Robert Capron as Bob; Atticus Schaffer as Edgar; James Hiroyuki Liao as Toshiaki; Conchata Ferrell as Bob’s Mom; and Tom Kenny as Fire Chief, Soldier and Townsfolk.

Frankenweenie opens nationwide October 5, 2013.
