With Frankenweenie getting set to make its DVD and Blu-ray debut on January 8th, word has just come that in addition to the movie we'll be getting a bonus short film that's likely to fill classic horror fans with glee.
As per USA Today...
"Captain Sparky vs. the Flying Saucers is another movie-within-a-movie, which finds Sparky recruited into duty when the most low-budget alien spacecraft ever begins attacking the planet." Frankenweenie's animation supervisor Mark Waring helmed the short.
Check out the first stills below.
The Frankenweenie voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!), and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), along with Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer.
