He’s already taken filmgoers to Sleepy Hollow and into Willy Wonka’s factory — and now, Variety reports, Tim Burton will team up with Disney to give audiences a new take on Alice in Wonderland.

Burton’s Wonderland is part of a new two-picture deal with Disney, one which will also find him bringing an expanded version of his 1984 short film, Frankenweenie, to theaters. Oh, and did we mention that both pictures will be shown in 3-D? Read on:

“Alice in Wonderland”…will combine performance-capture imagery, currently seen in “Beowulf,” with live-action footage.

After “Alice,” Burton will helm and produce “Frankenweenie,” based on his 1984 short film about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner. Pic will be shot in stop-motion animation and shown in digital 3-D.

As the article points out, Disney has been looking to increase its 3-D presence for some time now, and new technology has only helped fuel the studio’s ardor. Disney’s Oren Aviv tells Variety that Burton was the only director the studio wanted for the Alice script, proving that occasionally, the studio heads really do know what they’re doing.
