Director: Tim Burton

2012, USA, Black & White, 87 mins

Free preview of Tim Burton’s first animated feature film for Disney, a heart-warming 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 learn that getting a new ‘leash of life’ can be monstrous.


Victor’s new Sparky is a bit of a monster. Do you know other monsters from films? Could you make one as a class? Do some research and choose one
other famous film monster, then build it together using recycled materials. Bring it to IFI on the day of the screening. Before the film, we’ll have a Parade of Monsters with Frankenweenie prizes.
