Following yesterday's new photo release, we now have the first trailer for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie:

“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.”

Frankenweenie will be released in 3D on October 5th and is based on the original short film Tim Burton created back in 1984. The voice cast includes, Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara and Martin Landau.
