Burton resurrects dead dog tale 'Frankenweenie'
Tim Burton resurrects dead dog tale 'Frankenweenie' in full-length update
By The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) Tim Burton knows what it's like to be a boy with a dead dog.

The filmmaker came to the Comic-Con fan convention Thursday to show footage of "Frankenweenie," his expanded take on Burton's 1984 short film of the same name.

The film tells the story of a boy who brings his beloved dog back to life after the pet dies in an accident. Unlike the live-action original, the feature-length version is done in black and white through stop-motion animation using puppets meticulously shot one frame at a time.



Burton, who began as an animator, says it was a new experience back then to work with live actors but that the stop-motion version is the more pure take on his story.

"Frankenweenie" hits theaters Oct. 5.
