Tim Burton is teaming up with Walt Disney Studios to direct two 3D films Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The deal begins with Alice in Wonderland, set to combine performance capture imagery, seen recently in Beowulf, with live action footage. The entire film will be shown in theaters in 3D.

Written by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast) and based on the Lewis Carroll classic. Production will begin in early 2008 and set to wrap by May.

Burton will then direct and produce Frankenweenie, based on his 1984 short film about a pet dog who is brought back to life by his loyal owner. The film will be shot in stop motion animation and shown in digital 3D.
