Corpse Bride picture

Question: In one of the extras, Tim Burton says that he got the idea for Corpse Bride from a story. He said just that it was just a few paragraphs, but what is the story that he is talking about?

Answer: It's a 19th century Russian Jewish folk-tale - the story starts quite similarly, with the lead character saying his vows while putting the ring on what he believes to be a stick. The tale generally finishes with the rabbis annulling the marriage and the living bride vowing to honour the memory of the corpse bride throughout her marriage - which ties into the Jewish tradition of honouring the dead through the lives of the living.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit picture

Question: How was Wallace freed from being the Were-Rabbit?

Answer: The fall killed him, and the brain waves are seen leaving his body as he physically transforms back. Then, he's raised from the dead by the smell of cheese. (Yeah, I know, but it's a kid's movie, not a documentary.)

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children picture

Question: I'm sure Tseng was killed in the game Final Fantasy VII. However he appears at the beginning and end of this movie. Does anyone know why he is still alive? I thought he was killed by Sephiroth in the Temple of the Ancients.

Answer: Actually, you don't see Tseng die. Tseng is only cut by Sephiroth - if you talk to him he says something like "I am...... still alive......". It is the little talk from Elena which confuses so many people into believing that Tseng died - it's actually a mistranslation in the US and European Versions of the PS1 game. Elna says something like: "How dare you do that to my boss!", then: "But you really got guts doin' my boss in like that!" In the PC Version of the game this is correctly translated to "You got guts messing up my boss like that."

Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch picture

Question: I don't get it, how is it that Stitch's glitch was happening in this movie and didn't happen in the first movie?

Answer: It has to do with his molecules breaking down. In this film, he needs to have his molecules "charged". They had not broken down enough in the first film to cause the glitch.
