Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ Trailer Rises From The Grave

In 1984, a young Disney animator named Tim Burton directed his live-action debut, the short film 'Frankenweenie.' Disney planned for the short to run before a theatrical re-release of 'Pinocchio,' but once they screened the completed project, they fired Burton on the spot.

Burton, of course, went on to a somewhat legendary career as a filmmaker and in 2010 made Disney over $1 billion on 'Alice in Wonderland.' And now, in 2012, Disney is finally OK with the idea of a little boy who brings his dead dog back to life.

Meet Pixar’s First Princess In New Extended ‘Brave’ Clip

This summer's animated adventure 'Brave' is notable for a few reasons: One, it's Pixar's first foray into the world of fairy tales (something their partners at Disney are quite good at) and, two, it's Pixar's first female-driven film. While the plot seems reminiscent of 'How to Train Your Dragon' - a young Scot fights the odds to battle a fierce beast while becoming a valiant hero - it's the little things we see in this new extended clip that set 'Brave' apart from the rest.
