Frankenstein with a boy and a dog is the quick description of the Frankenweenie and the trailer backs that up, but it does look like it could be a lot of fun especially with the little references to the original story - watch for that nice Bride of Frankenstein moment.
It is a Tim Burton short story, script and film so there's going to be a lot more to it than the blurb suggests, this isn't just going to be a retelling of the Frankenstein tale with a boy and a dog and some nice references.
Here's the blurb for Frankenweenie:
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.
