As you probably know Disney’s new very aptly timed Halloween-esque movie Frankenweenie is out in Cinemas 17th October.
Me and Thomas are big big fans of Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, so we are both really excited to see what director Tim Burton’s latest Disney Movie has to offer.
It’s the heart warming story of Victor, a boy who suddenly and unexpectedly loses his beloved pet dog Sparky. Still overcome with grief Victor decides to try and bring Sparky back to life, and unexpectedly succeeds. Obviously this isn’t the most usual of occurrences and despite trying to keep Sparky secret, once his parents, teachers and friends find out things start to get interesting.
Frankenweenie looks from the trailer to be a beautiful black and white stop motion movie. The familiar sound of the Danny Elfman score, plus the wonderful voice talents of some of my favourite actors like Catherine o’Hara and Martin Short , mean that I really can’t wait to go this movie. It’s in 3D too, which I think works so well with animated movies.
To get us all in the mood those kind folks at Disney have released a series of free printable Frankenweenie Activity Sheets for you and your youngsters to enjoy. Simply print out all the sheets and you’ll have a nice little Frankenweenie Activity book to help keep your kids amused whilst waiting for the movie release.
Frankenweenie is in Cinemas from October 17th in 3D and Imax 3D
