Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment

Disney proudly announces the home entertainment debut of Frankenweenie, Tim Burton's stop-motion, black and white animated film. Having hit the 2013 awards season by storm Frankenweenie was nominated for the 85th Academy Awards® for 'Animated Feature Film', 'Animated Film' at the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards 2013 and 'Animated Feature Film' at the 70th Golden Globes® Awards 2013. The visually stunning and heart-warming tale about a boy and his dog releases to own on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, digital download and on DVD on 25th February 2013.

Frankenweenie comes alive in all its glory in high definition Blu-ray providing a spectacular in-home picture and sound enhancing experience complete with electrifying bonus features. The eye-popping 3D Blu-rayT and Blu-rayT include an all-new original short "Captain Sparky vs. The Flying Saucers"; an exciting behind-the-scenes featurette with Tim Burton "Miniatures in Motion: Bringing 'Frankenweenie' to Life"; a showcase of the film's touring exhibit, "'Frankenweenie' Touring Exhibit"; Tim Burton's original live-action short and more.

The resurrected canine Sparky returns in a brand new unseen original short: 'Captain Sparky vs. the Flying Saucers' which debuts on the Blu-ray and DVD release featuring Victor and Sparky's home movie. The exciting feature propels Sparky into action when an alien spacecraft threatens life on Earth, but can he save the day?

Celebrated by critics, Frankenweenie won "Best Animated Film of 2012" awards from the prestigious Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Circle and the Boston Society of Film Critics. Nominations for 'Best Animated Feature' extend beyond the 2013 British Academy Film Awards, to also include the 85th Academy Awards® Critic's Choice Awards and the Annie Awards plus a nomination from the 2013 Golden Globes®. The New York Post, Los Angeles Times and influential Time Magazine all cite Frankenweenie in their Top 10 movies of 2012, affirming the film's 'must-have' place in every Tim Burton collection.

The hilarious animated masterpiece is filled with quirky characters and unexpected twists. After suddenly 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 learn that getting a new 'leash on life' can be monstrous.

Frankenweenie features an all-star vocal cast, with Emmy Award®- winner Catherine O'hara (Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice), Tony Award®-winner Martin Short (Mars Attacks!, Madagascar 3) Academy Award®-winner Martin Landau (9, Entourage), Charlie Tahan (I Am Legend, Charlie St Cloud), Atticus Shaffer (Hancock, The Unborn), Robert Capron (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, The Sorcerer's Apprentice), Conchata Ferrell (Edward Scissorhands, Erin Brockovic) and Golden Globe®-winner Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhand, Black Swan) all lending their distinctive voices to the eclectic cast of characters.
