Frankenweenie Remake to Ruin the Word “Weenie”

Wocka wocka wocka!

Since our recent bashing of Tim Burton’s career is still fresh in your head, I thought I’d go ahead and share some more Burton news: Recently, Don Hahn confirmed at SXSW that Burton will direct a feature length animated version of Frankenweenie as his next project.  Hahn is executive producing.  The news of this remake is really nothing new, as it’s been rumored for some time now, but it’s still somewhat upsetting for a couple of reasons.

I have to ask: What was wrong with the original?  I thought it was quick and funny.  Has Burton reached the point in his career where he’s going to start remaking (and consequently ruining) his own films now?  And for Disney?  And in 3D?

Speaking of 3D, WHY Burton?  Didn’t you used to be a unique director who was anything but conventional?  You do realize that this 3D thing is a passing gimmick, right?  I’m about to just give up on you, dear sir, which is rather sad.
