Disney sets 'Frankenweenie,' 'John Carter of Mars' release dates

Disney is shoring up its 2012 movie calender, planting release-date flags for Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie" and "John Carter of Mars," directed by Andrew Stanton.
"Frankenweenie," which had initially been aiming for a 2011 release, will open March 9, 2012.
The movie is based on the comedic horror short that Burton made in 1984 while a film school student. The story centers on a man who brings his dog back to life after it is killed by a car.

While the original "Frankenweenie" was a live-action project, the new one will be made using stop-motion animation and be in Disney Digital 3-D. Like the original, the feature version is to be shot in black and white. 
"Mars," which is based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs books, was always eyeing a 2012 date, but now the official date is June 8, 2012. It too will be in Disney Digital 3D.
