Frankenweenie to Arrive in January 2013
If you’re one of the many people who enjoyed Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie last October and would want to own it on home video format, you’ll have to mark your 2013 calendar as Disney has scheduled January 8, 2013 as the release date for Frankenweenie via 4-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital, and On-Demand formats.
The critically-acclaimed 3D stop motion animated feature focuses on the story of the bond between a young genius named Victor and his pet dog Sparky. After Sparky meets its untimely demise in a car accident, Victor harnesses the power of lightning in order to bring his best friend back to life, opening a whole can of proverbial worms in the process.
The Frankenweenie Blu-ray Combo Pack will include an all-new original shrot titled Captain Sparky vs The Flying Saucers, a behind the scenes look with Tim Burton titled Miniatures in Motion: Bringing ‘Frankenweenie’ to Life; a showcase of the film’s touring exhibit, ‘Frankenweenie’ Touring Exhibit, and Tim Burton’s original live-action short of the same name, and more.
The 1-Disc DVD retails for $29.99; 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack: $39.99; 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack: $49.99.
