Some new character posters from Tim Burton’s upcoming stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie, have gone online. As we talked about in our Comic-Con panel recap, the film’s characters feature unique looks to differentiate them from each other. The following posters give a good look at just how odd they are. Frankenweenie, starring Charlie Tahan, Christopher Lee, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Winona Ryder and Robert Capron, opens October 5th. Hit the jump to check out the posters.
Check out the new character posters from Frankenweenie after the official synopsis below:
From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” 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.
