Set in a 19th century European village, young Victor is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride, while his real bride, Victoria, waits bereft in the land of the living.

Feature animation directorial debut for Mike Johnson.

Film employs stop-motion animation rather than the more traditional cel animation technique. Unlike the latter, which is two-dimensional, stop-motion is three-dimensional and involves the use of miniature sets and puppets that are painstakingly staged and photographed frame by frame. The lead puppets cost about $30,000 each to produce.
