Disney's stop-motion animated 3D movie is a bit of a homecoming for Ryder, who had previously worked with Burton on the films, "Beetlejuice" and "Edward Scissorhands. SOUNDBITE Winona Ryder saying (English): "It was a dream come true. He's so special, and I love him so much. I credit him with not only giving me a career but also with giving me a voice because when I first met him, there weren't characters like that." SOUNDBITE TIm Burton saying (English): "I hadn't seen her in a long time but she's got that kind of voice where she could still play a 10-year-old. It was great, it meant a lot to me to have people that I've worked with in the past and loved be a part of this." "Frankenweenie" also features the voices of previous Burton collaborators like Martin Landau from "Ed Wood," Catherine O'Hara from "Beetlejuice," Martin Short from "Mars Attacks!" "Frankenweenie" hits U.S. theaters on Oct. 5.
