Disney Launches 10 Days of Frankenweenie
Burbank, CA -- Disney launched “10 Days of Frankenweenie,” a new free level pack for the hit mobile game “Where’s My Water? Free.” Inspired by Disney’s stop-motion animated film “Frankenweenie,” directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tim Burton, the level pack features new black and white levels that combine the film’s retro look and feel with the gameplay of Where’s My Water?.
Players of “Where’s My Water? Free” will enjoy the new movie-themed comic panel featuring Sparky, the beloved dog from the film, in addition to the “Frankenweenie”-themed locked level icons, collectibles and more. “10 Days of Frankenweenie” also features a brand-new soundtrack inspired by the film, featuring a child choir, all new music mixes for the levels and spooky sound effects.
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. The talented voice cast includes: Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder.
Presented by Disney, “Frankenweenie” is directed by Tim Burton, produced by Tim Burton and Allison Abbate, from a screenplay by John August, based on a screenplay by Lenny Ripps, based on an original idea by Tim Burton.
“Frankenweenie” releases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.
