Reporting from SXSW, AICN is reporting that during a Q&A of Waking Sleeping Beauty director Don Hahn pretty much confirmed that the feature-length, animated version of Frankenweenie will be the next film that Tim Burton tackles. Hahn is working as executive producer on the film.

Hahn dropped the line that the puppets are ready and the script is done and now that Alice in Wonderland is finished and making more money than God, Burton’s ready to start the film. Furthermore, it will be in DOG RE-ANIMATING 3D. (I think that from now on I will only tell you when an upcoming film will be presented in 2D. Save my fingers a bit.)

The original short is a classic, a really cute and fun homage to old monster movies, but we’ll see how Tim Burton manages to muck it up this time.
