Mmmmmm....bloody, fleshy and cakey goodness. Hopefully they taste just as good as they mimick human flesh.

Just in time for Halloween, Frankenweenie is hitting theaters today, giving viewers a chance to enjoy all the campiness of black-and-white classic horror films while still offering them something delightfully new and unique. In honor of the movie’s release, here are some things you should know about the development and creation of Tim Burton’s newest baby.
Even casual Tim Burton fans probably already know that the new movie is a remake of his 1984 short of the same name. But there are a lot of things you might not know about the original as well. For example, Tim always wanted the story to be a stop motion animation, he only settled for live action because the million dollar budget was simply too small to do a full stop motion project.
The original Frankenweenie also has two interesting distinctions in Disney history –first, it’s the last movie they ever released with the Buena Vista Distribution logo. More importantly, it’s the film that got Tim Burton fired from the company back when he was still working as a story board and concept artist. That’s because they considered the film to be an utter waste of money, as it was intended to be shown with the theatrical re-release of Pinocchio, but the film proved too scary for the children in their test audiences. Interestingly, while it was never released in American theaters, it was played in U.K. theaters before the movie Baby: Secret of Lost Legend.
Unsurprisingly, after Burton moved to Warner Bros. and released a string of successful titles including Beetlejuice, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Batman, as well as releasing Edward Scissorhands with 20th Century Fox, Disney reconsidered how they treated the young director and they gladly worked with him again to create The Nightmare Before Christmas. The original Frankenweenie finally reached a large audience when it was released as an extra on The Nightmare Before Christmas DVD and Blu-ray.
Of course, throughout this entire period, Burton continued to dream of finally shooting the story the way he had always dreamed –in stop motion.
Success At Long Last
Finally, after The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach and The Corpse Bride were all made with stop motion and all did well, Burton was able to start working on his pet project again. A first-draft of the feature-length script was created in 2005 and the final rewrite was completed in 2009 when Tim signed a contract with Disney to shoot two films in their new Digital 3D technology –Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie.

All real Star Wars fans know that Han shot first, but legally, was he justified in doing so or should the Empire go after him for murder? Well, ccording to The Legal Geeks:
Without a doubt, having a blaster pointed directly at Han put his life in danger. Additionally, Greedo’s statement “That’s the idea. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time,” communicated Greedo’s intent to kill Han. Shooting first was the only away to prevent Greedo from using deadly force himself.
See George, you didn't need to edit it so Greedo would shoot first just to make Han look like a good guy.
