Walt Disney Studios has announced release dates for two more of its upcoming pictures.

Frankenweenie, the 3D stop-motion, feature-length adaptation of Tim Burton’s short film of the same name (and found on The Nightmare Before Christmas DVD), is set for March 9, 2012. Although no official synopsis has yet been released, the dark comedy centers around a young boy named Victor who loses his dog in a car accident, only to bring him back to life a la Frankenstein. The short is often cited as the key reason for Burton’s initial departure as an employee of the Studios.
