Walt Disney Studios New Zealand has released the teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie which will be released in theaters later this year. Walt Disney Studios has also provided us with several new stills, which include first looks at the characters of Edgar ‘E’ Gore (get it?) and Persephone.
From Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, comes this image of young Victor Frankenstein laying in bed while his faithful pup Sparky lays beneath it. A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog, 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. Frankenweenie opens in theaters nationwide on October 5, 2012.
