I absolutely LOVE Disney. I know I know you already know this, but have you really looked at Frankenweenie or Wreck It Ralph yet? Let me tell you a bit about both movies:
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 an original idea by Tim Burton. “Frankenweenie” releases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
So on September 23 I’m traveling to LA to make new Magical Memories at the #DisneyMoviesEvent! In short we will be attending the press day at Walt Disney Animation Studios for WRECK-IT RALPH and the animated short PAPERMAN (both opening in theatres on 11/2), get a sneak peak of Disney/Pixar’s MONSTERS, INC. 3D (opening in theatres on 12/19) and attend the red carpet premiere for FRANKENWEENIE (opening in theatres on 10/5)! I’ve been excited about both films for a little over a year now. For Frankenweenie all I needed to know was Tim Burton. I LOVE everything this man does. It’s creepy, dark, and fun. Which is kinda like me.
Then Wreck It Ralph brings me back to my childhood. I can’t wait to see the full film!
Make sure your following along with the #DisneyMoviesEvent hashtag to keep up with all the fun and learn more about both movies!
