Burton’s Vincent Goes 3D

Having converted Tim Burton’s 1994 animated feature The Nightmare Before Christmas to stereoscopic 3D last year, Disney is giving the same treatment to a stop-motion short the celebrated filmmaker made in 1982. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Nightmare will be back in 3D-equiped theaters this October with a special 3D version of Vincent.

Animated by Stephen Chiodo and narrated by late horror movie icon Vincent Price, Vincent is a six-minute black-and-white film about a boy named Vincent Malloy who idolizes Price and does his best to live like an Edgar Allen Poe character. The gothic comedy won the Audience Award at the 1984 Ottawa Int’l Animation Festival and helped launch Burton’s career.
