Winona Ryder: 'Frankenweenie' Character Debut!

Check out Winona Ryder in animated form as Elsa Van Helsing in Disney’s upcoming Frankenweenie!

JustJared.com has the 40-year-old actress’s exclusive character debut for the Tim Burton-directed flick, which hits theaters October 5.

Elsa is a soulful and somber classmate of Victor. She lives next door to him with her tyrant uncle, Mayor Burgemeister, who forces her to be this year’s “Little Dutch Girl” at the town’s celebration of Dutch Day. Elsa also has a beloved pet, her poodle Persephone (also pictured inside), and truly empathizes with Victor when he loses Sparky.

Persephone is a perfectly groomed black poodle with an enormously large poof of hair on her head. She is curious and flirtatious with Sparky and fiercely loyal to Elsa, her owner. When Persephone and Sparky first meet in the backyard, the attraction is instantaneous and electrifying.
