“’Frankenweenie’ is a very personal film for me.  The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years.  Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I’ve always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality.  I’ve worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time.  I’m so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees.”

    I am a huge Disney fan, but I’ve only been able to see The Avengers so far! I really want to see Brave, Lincoln, and Frankenweenie!

    Disney has always produced quality work that has lasted generations. Who is going to be watching CRASH 50 years from now? They should be honored for their work.
