Walt Disney Studios has provided us with a brand new hi-res still from its upcoming film by Tim Burton, Frankenweenie. The still features Persephone, Edward ‘E’ Gore, Elsa Van Helsing and the Were-Rat (insert spooky audio cue here). We first told you about the were-rat when we discovered him and his merchandise at the ‘Art of Frankenweenie‘ exhibition at San Diego Comic-Con.The exhibition will soon be on its way to Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort from September 14, 2012 through November 5, where it will be accompanied by a special sneak peek at the film.
The new still has been added to the beginning of our gallery of stills from the film below:
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 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, 2012.
