These two stills and one picture of Burton debuted over at Entertainment Weekly, where Burton explained of the film, "It just tries to keep that idea of a very, simple pure relationship. Mix that with the Frankenstein myth, and it causes problems.” Despite the obligatory morbidity, he said, "Ultimately, we try to go with the slightly more positive aspects of keeping that [boy-and-his-dog] relationship going.”
The short film that Burton shot more than 25 years ago alienated him from Disney, which found it too strange to release and basically fired him for it. That was Burton before he even directed his first feature, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, and went on to become one of the biggest directors on the planet though.
Robert Capron voices Bob, while other actors lending the vocal talents to the film include Winona Ryder, Martin Landau, Catherine O'Hara, and Martin Short. Frankenweenie will hit theaters in 3D on October 5, 2012.
