Though you’d be hard-pressed to find someone inside the Disney fan community today who doesn’t know of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, you don’t have to go very far outside of it or back in time to find many who don’t. Created by Walt Disney under contract for Universal Studios in 1927, Oswald was an instant and phenomenal success, but when Walt was kicked to the curb, Mickey Mouse would emerge a year later and after a bit of struggling of his own, Oswald was condemned to oblivion for decades.

In anticipation of the stop-motion full-length remake of Tim Burton’s classic short, Frankenweenie, Walt Disney Studios has erected a mobile touring exhibit titled ‘The Art of Frankenweenie‘ which treats visitors to a rare, inside look at how the film was made. One of the first stops on the world tour is San Diego Comic-Con and we were invited by Walt Disney Studios to be one of the first to preview the exhibit which was hosted by film producers Don Hahn and Allison Abbate. Talent from the film, including Atticus Shaffer (of ABC’s ‘The Middle’ and voice of Edgar Gore) also passed through the exhibit to see the displays of props, puppets and concept art.
iTunes has exclusively premiered the new trailer for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, which will be in theaters nationwide on October 5, 2012.
The new trailer focuses on young Victor as he receives inspiration and puts into practice a challenge to bring his beloved pet dog Sparky back to life.
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.
