Winona Ryder and Martin Landau will voice key roles, while Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara will each voice five characters, according to Deadline. All four actors have experience working with Burton in the past. Ryder played opposite Johnny Depp in 'Edward Scissorhands' and before that in 'Beetlejuice'; Landau won an Academy Award for 'Ed Wood.' Short appeared in the director's 'Mars Attacks!' and O'Hara played in 'Beetlejuice' as well as voicing a part in 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.'
'Frankenweenie' is based on Burton's 1984 short film of the same name (watch it below), which revolved around a young boy who brings his dog back to life, a la 'Frankenstein.' In the original, the boy's parents were played by Daniel Stern and Shelley Duvall; in the feature adaptation, those voice roles will be assumed by Short and O'Hara.
Whatever your feelings on Burton's live-action features, the stop-motion animated films that he's either directed or produced have been sterling: 'Corpse Bride,' 'The Nightmare Before Christmas,' 'James and the Giant Peach.' We'll have to wait until 'Frankenweenie' is released on March 9, 2012, to see the results.
