Corpse Bride came out on DVD on Tuesday this past week. I saw it in the theaters shortly after it came out. Being a fan of Tim Burton‘s The Nightmare Before Christmas, I was quite excited knowing Corpse Bride was a return to his stop-motion animation style.
The story is based on a Romanian fairly tale, I believe, where the main character, Victor, is to marry a girl he has never met before, but before any of that could happen he ends up marrying a corpse bride. I liked it very much and would recommend anyone to pick up the DVD. Its loaded with extras that go into some of the process that went on in making the movie have its unique style. I was able to pick the DVD up Thursday night after work.
If your interested in getting any merchandise for Corpse Bride, McFarlane toys has put out some action figures. I bought the movie poster at the last major convention we went to and it is now proudly hanging on my wall.
