“Frankenweenie” Trailer and Family Activity Sheets


If there is one Disney movie I have been anticipating the longest–and with the most excitement–it is definitely Frankenweenie. I was actually introduced to Frankenweenie well before I started seeing the theatrical posters and trailers for this movie. In fact, it was originally released in 1984 as a short film. I first saw it when it appeared on The Nightmare Before Christmas two-disc Collector’s Edition DVD, along with another one of Tim Burton’s short films, Vincent. For more than a decade, I have absolutely loved Frankenweenie, and for Tim Burton to turn his short film into an actual full-length movie that I can go to the theater to see is so exciting!

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the official trailer for Frankenweenie 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.

A stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.

Frankenweenie releases in US theaters on October 5th!

As we await the release of the movie, we have some really fun activity sheets that the whole family can get in on, including mazes, spot the difference, and “Pin-the-Tail on Sparky” game. You can download all of the activity sheets (in PDF format) using the link below:
