Frankenweenie DVD / 3D BD bonus features, Original Vs Remake

"Frankenweenie" (2012) is a stop-motion 3D animated remake of Tim Burton's short film of the same name released in 1984. The latest movie perhaps an hour longer and use modern movie-making technology, but the fact remains that Tim is returning to very familiar territory.

Even if there are some modifications, both storylines are much similar. They both follow a little boy named Victor Frankenstein whose best friend is a Dog. Frankenstein and his friend spend hours together until the day the dog runs in front of a vehicle and does not survive.  Frankenstein decides to exploit the power of science to bring his friend back to life. He succeeds, but the people in his life are not quite ready to cope with the dog. Cuddly as he may be, dog gets into a whole world of problem.

The remake has a unique appearance. Both movies shot in black & white, but the visual likeness stop there. The first one was live action, featuring Barret Oliver as Victor Frankenstein. The latest one is an animated film that features the same stop-motion techniques that Tim utilized in "Corpse Bride". While the first movie was a modest one, shot with originality rather than most modern technology, the remake is innovative. It is the first stop-motion movie to debut in IMAX 3D. Regardless of its retro look, the newest one jumps from the screen and comes to life in a way eighties viewers could never even have imagined.
