Frankenweenie, Tim Burton’s first short film of substantial length way back in 1984, put him on the Hollywood map and became a cult classic. Plans to go back and re-release the film first surfaced in 2005, and filming finally began last year. The remake will include Burton fleshing out the story to make it a feature length and re-animate what footage already existed.

The original film was a black-and-white stop animation that parodied and played homage to Frankenstein. In it a young boy tries to bring his dog Sparky back to life after the canine was killed by a car.

The film is slated for release on Oct. 5, 2012.

Check out two still shots that Entertainment Weekly published earlier this morning.
