Tim Burton’s remaking his own 1984 stop-motion short of the same name, which ended up getting Burton fired from Disney Animation. Ironically, it is Disney that is releasing the full-length feature this time around.
Not surprisingly, the premise is still the same: “After the death of his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring him back to life. Victor tries to hide his creation, but Sparky gets out and causes havoc in the town.”
What is surprising is that both Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter are nowhere to be found among the voice cast. In theaters October 5th.
