I had the privilege of interviewing Frankenweenie producer Allison Abbate during a special screening of an extended preview of Frankenweenie last summer. My favorite tidbit from that interview was that the story of Frankenweenie is the first full story that Burton conceived and that this movie has been “in the making” since he was 10 years old!
