Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' Holding its World Premiere at Fantastic Fest


 
The annual Fantastic Fest -- held in Austin, Texas -- gives genre fans an excuse to venture to the Texas capitol to gorge on challenging, stimulating (and often gory) cinematic offerings from the current kings of the medium. This year, however, audiences have an altogether Fantastic reason to grab tickets. 
 
Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie will have its world premiere at Fantastic Fest. The screening will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20, serving as the Opening Night selection for this year’s event. 
 
"Tim Burton stands as a titan of modern genre cinema. To world premiere the feature adaptation of his early beloved short is a huge honor for me personally and for the festival in general," said Fantastic Fest Co-founder and Creative Director Tim League.
 
It has been a busy week for Burton’s stop-motion animation effort. Walt Disney recently released the full Frankenweenie trailer, which we’re hapapy to share below. We also presented an exclusive 360-degree tour of the Frankenweenie set. Click here to check that out!
 
In addition, the studio revealed that they are bringing Frankenweenie to Comic-Con in July, with a special Q-and-A session between Burton and his fans scheduled for Thursday in Hall H.
 
As most of you probably already know, Frankenweenie started as a short film – one of the first projects on Burton’s resume. He’s revising and renovating the Frankenstein-inspired short, converting it to 3D and polishing it up for modern audiences. The voice cast is littered with Burton veterans, from Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short and Martin Landau to the great Winona Ryder. 
 
Can’t make it to Austin for Fantastic Fest? Never fear. Frankenweenie will be in a theater near you beginning Oct. 5. Reserve tickets now by clicking here.
