Tim Burton and Disney, who previously worked together on “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, are teaming up again for two 3-D pics, “Alice in Wonderland” and “Frankenweenie” reports Variety.
“Alice in Wonderland”, based on the Lewis Carroll classic, will combine performance-capture imagery (ala “Beowulf”) with live-action footage. Linda Woolverton (“The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast”) adapted the script.
Once wrapping up promotion for “Sweeney Todd,” Burton will tackle “Alice in Wonderland” early next year with production set to wrap by May.
He’ll move on from that into the stop-motion animation feature “Frankenweenie,” based on his 1984 short film about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner. Both films will be released in digital 3-D.
