The project is a stop-motion, feature-length adaptation of the live-action short film Burton directed in 1984. Short and O’Hara, who have appeared in Mars Attacks! and Beetlejuice, respectively, will voice five characters each. Ryder (Edward Scissorhands) will voice the character Elsa, while Landau (Ed Wood) will play Mr. Rzykruski, says Deadline. Learn who Short and O’Hara are playing here.
