One of Tim Burton's earliest animated shorts, Vincent will be converted to a stereoscopic 3-D form for Walt Disney Pictures.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will play on 3-D-ready digital-cinema screens as the opening attraction to screenings of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas in Disney Digital 3-D.

Made in 1982, Vincent is a six-minute stop-motion film that tells the story of Vincent Malloy, a youth who imagines that he is like Vincent Price. The black-and-white short is based on a poem written by Burton, who was influenced by Price, and who also narrated the film.

Vincent and Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas in Disney Digital 3-D will be re-released in October.
