He died about the same time as your father. Luke wisely changes the subject, mentioning his intention to transmit his application to the Academy in the present year if the droids work out satisfactorily.

Owen objects, wishing him to apply the next year after another harvest season: It's only one season more. He has too much of his father in him. Outside, white-robed Luke stands on a small rise, watching Tatooine's twin suns setting near the horizon. Returning to the robots in the garage, Luke finds C-3PO hiding and scared: Please don't de-activate me!

He kept babbling on about his mission" and then wandered off into the desert night. Luke scans the horizon with a pair of electro-binoculars equipped with night-vision, but R2-D2 is nowhere to be seen.

Luke decides they must wait until morning to search for him: That little droid's gonna cause me a lot of trouble. The next morning, without telling his uncle, Luke and C-3PO give chase into the desert after runaway R2-D2 in a jet-propelled landspeeder, a vehicle which skims a foot off the ground. They are watched from high on a ridge by two dangerous, nomadic warriors called Tusken Raiders Sand People , riding on shaggy, elephant-like creatures.

The landspeeder quickly catches up to R2-D2, who immediately senses and urgently warns them that there are "several creatures approaching from the southeast. He grabs his laser rifle and binoculars and runs to a nearby hill to look for them. As he scans the land, one of the Sand People rises up in front of him with a battle-axe.

Luke blocks some of the blows, but is knocked to the ground as the Raider shrieks and raises his axe. Luke faints and is dragged down to the landspeeder where a group of Sand People plan to ransack his vehicle. R2-D2 hides in a small crevice in the rocks. A terrifying howling is heard from up in the canyon as a mysterious stranger in a brown-hooded cloak approaches. The Sand People immediately scatter and flee in fear.

The figure removes the hood from his face to reveal an older man with white hair, a gray beard and kindly face. He greets R2-D2 who peers out of his hiding place: Come here my little friend. Boy, am I glad to see you. Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time. I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead. Oh, he's not dead. Well, of course I know him. I haven't gone by the name of Obi-Wan since, oh, before you were born. Well then, the droid does belong to you.

I don't seem to remember ever owning a droid.

Frankenweenie , the first black-and-white feature film and the first stop-motion film to be released in IMAX 3D , [4] was released on October 5, and met with positive reviews and moderate box office sales. Victor's intelligence is recognized by his classmates at school, his somber next-door neighbor, Elsa Van Helsing, mischievous, Edgar "E" Gore, obese and gullible Bob, overconfident Toshiaki, creepy Nassor, and an eccentric girl nicknamed Weird Girl, but communicates little with them due to his relationship with his dog.

Concerned with his son's isolation, Victor's father encourages him to take up baseball and make achievements outside of science.

Victor hits a home run at his first game, but Sparky, pursuing the ball, is struck by a car and killed. Inspired by his science teacher Mr. Rzykruski's demonstration of the effect of electricity on dead frogs , a depressed Victor hires himself as a mad scientist , digs up Sparky's corpse, brings him to his makeshift laboratory in the attic and successfully reanimates him with lightning. Seeing Weird Girl's living cat, Mr. Whiskers, the undead Sparky escapes from the attic and explores the neighborhood.

He is recognized by Edgar, who blackmails Victor into teaching him how to raise the dead. The two reanimate a dead goldfish, which turns invisible due to an error with the experiment. Edgar brags about the undead fish to Toshiaki and Bob, which, in panic of losing the upcoming science fair, inspires them to make a rocket out of soda bottles, which causes Bob to break his arm and Mr.

Rzykruski to be blamed and fired due to his accused influencing and reviling the townsfolk for questioning his methods when he steps up for self-defense.

So, the gym teacher replaces Mr. Eventually, Edgar's fish disappears when he tries to show it to a skeptical Nassor who was told by Toshiaki , and when Edgar is confronted by Toshiaki, Nassor and Bob on the baseball field at school, he accidentally reveals Victor's actions, inspiring them to try reanimation themselves. Victor's parents discover Sparky in the attic and are frightened, causing the dog to flee. Victor and his parents search for Sparky while the classmates invade the lab, discovering Victor's reanimation formula.

The classmates separately perform their experiments, which go awry and turn the dead animals into monsters — Mr. Whiskers holds a dead bat while it is electrocuted, resulting in him fusing with it and becoming a monstrous bat-cat hybrid with wings and fangs.

Edgar turns a dead rat he found in the garbage into a wererat , Nassor successfully revives his mummified hamster Colossus and Toshiaki's turtle Shelley is covered in Miracle Gro and turns into a kaiju -like monster. Bob's Sea-Monkeys grow into amphibious humanoids. The monsters break loose into the town fair where they wreak havoc.

After finding Sparky at the town's pet cemetery, Victor sees the monsters heading to the fair and goes with his classmates to help deal with them — the Sea-Monkeys explode after eating salt-covered popcorn due to them being freshwater , and Colossus is stepped on by Shelley, while the rat and Shelley are returned to their original, deceased forms after both being electrocuted.

During the chaos, Persephone, Elsa's pet poodle, is grabbed by Mr. Whiskers and carried to the town windmill with Elsa and Victor chasing after.

The townsfolk blame Sparky for Elsa's disappearance and chase him to the windmill, which Mayor Burgermeister accidentally ignites with his torch. Victor and Sparky enter the burning windmill and rescue Elsa and Persephone, but Victor is trapped inside. Sparky rescues Victor, only to be dragged back inside by Mr. A final confrontation ensues, and just as Mr.

Whiskers has Sparky cornered, a flaming piece of wood breaks off and impales Mr. The windmill then collapses on Sparky, presumably killing him again. To reward him for his bravery and saving Victor, the townsfolk gather to revive Sparky with their car batteries, reanimating him once more.

Persephone comes to Sparky as the two dogs share their love and kiss. Although Tim Burton signed with Disney to direct two films in Disney Digital 3D , including Alice in Wonderland and his remake of Frankenweenie , development for its full-length stop motion version dates as far back as November , when scripts had been written by Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott. Like the original, the feature version is shot in black and white. Many of the animation artists and crew from Corpse Bride are involved.

Filming began at Three Mills Studios in July The sound stages were then divided into 30 separate areas to deal with the handcrafted, frame-by-frame style of filmmaking. Compared to other stop-motion animation sets, Frankenweenie ' s set is much larger.

As IGN notes, the main character Sparky had to be "'dog-size' compared to the other human characters, but also large enough to house all the elements of the mechanical skeleton secreted within his various foam and silicon-based incarnation". On the other hand, the mechanics are small and delicate, and in some instances they had to have Swiss watchmakers create the tiny nuts and bolts. Around separate puppets were used, with roughly 18 different versions of Victor.

The puppets also have human hair, with 40—45 joints for the human characters and about parts for Sparky. In early , it was announced that Danny Elfman would score Frankenweenie , with work already started on pre-production music. Prior to the film's release, an "inspired by" soundtrack album, Frankenweenie: The film was initially set for release in November , before Disney moved it to March 9, In the lead up to the film's release in October , there was a traveling art exhibition detailing the work that has gone into creating the film.

During the exhibition it was possible to see sets and characters that were used for the stop motion feature film. At Disneyland , Sparky's tombstone was added to the pet cemetery outside of Haunted Mansion Holiday , a seasonal attraction that features characters from Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The film has received positive reviews from critics.
