If the answer to all of these questions is yes, then keep reading because this post is going to be the highlight of your day.

On October 6, renowned artist Joey Chou will make his first appearance at Disney California Adventure park for the debut of three new “Frankenweenie”-inspired pieces: Victor and Sparky, A Dark Night in New Holland and Young Love.

Joey is most known for his work in visual development in animation and as an illustrator of children’s books such as “it’s a small world,” “Say What” and “Nemo’s Day Off.” When I talked to Joey about this new art, he shared how excited he was to have been able to work on such an amazing project, especially since he himself is such a huge fan of Tim Burton, and how he especially loved the black and white take on the film, which carries over into his own work.

Joining Joey on October 6 is none other than Don Hahn, Executive Producer of Frankenweenie.

So mark your calendars, “Frankenweenie” fans! Meet Joey Chou and Don Hahn, October 6 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Off the Page in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park. And if you haven’t seen “The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition” yet, well good news – it’s right next door.

LOVE the Frankenweenie movie preview! I had already seen the exhibit at San Diego Comic Con this year, but it was nice to go back and look the sets. But the preview I think is the best! The movie looks amazing in 3D and I love all the extra 4D features, like the lightening, the rain, and the eerie green light! It really enhances the film. I’d be willing to shell out the extra money for a full 4D Frankenweenie experience!
