Frankenweenie Exhibit @ DCA

Last weekend we were able to visit the Frankenweenie preview and exhibit at Disney California Adventure.

We decided to head to the Muppet 3D theater to experience the seven min 4D preview. It was pretty neat with the added 4D effects of the theater (water, wind and lighting) and got us pretty excited for the movie. The animation is gorgeous and the story itself it pretty heartfelt.

On exiting the theater, you're greeted with awesome monster movie inspired posters involving kids from the movie and their beloved pets.

Next we headed to the Animation Building where the main lobby area has been turned into a Frankenweenie exhibit!

Victor's Attic, his classroom, and the Frankenstein dining room sets are on display. Each beautifully detailed and composed. Something to see in every corner! No detail missed.

Victor's Attic is interactive with a few hidden jems.

Victor's classroom has some of my favorite details and the all of the kid characters.

The Frankenstein household is AWESOME. Cute and detailed with owl oven mitts and cracked eggs! Totally a kitchen I would love to have.

 Lastly, you can view all of the main characters up close with concepts, wardrobe and armature details. Just looking at the clothing details instantly gives you a sense of who the characters are and how they live.

Make sure to stop by and check out this awesome exhibit on your next trip to the parks!

On Sunday, we saw an early matinee showing. 
It was very cute and heartfelt movie. A great transition from the 30 min short to feature animation. However, it felt a bit forced in the middle and long. I was a bit disinterested in the middle but quickly fell back in love with the story.  
Not sure if I want to see it again, but I am positive that I will keep looking at stills and photographs from it. Can't stress enough how beautiful the art is for this film.

Cheers!
