The Halloween event will also see Weird Al Yankovic as Lock and Ken Page will return as Oogie Boogie.
Billie was seen meeting with the film’s producer, Tim Burton, at a Grammy party in January last year.
The movie was based on a poem and story written by Burton, and went on to gross $91.5million at the box office against a $24million budget.

Proving popular over the years, the film has been reissued by Walt Disney Pictures many times.
It was re-released annually in Disney Digital 3-D from 2006 until 2009, making it the first stop-motion animated feature to be entirely converted to 3D.
Meanwhile, the No Time To Die singer confessed this week that she was worried she’d wet herself with excitement on hearing her Bond theme tune on the big screen.

The Bad Guy singer performs the title track from the James Bond film of the same name – which finally got its premiere the other night after months of delays – and she admitted she was very excited by the ‘crazy’ turn of events.
She said: ‘It’s going to be crazy. Oh my god, I’m gonna pee myself.’
Billie wrote the song with her brother Finneas and they both always wanted it to be a ‘big moment’.
She added: ‘We still wanted to have a big moment because it’s a Bond song. And as much as I’m known for singing quietly, I guess, I was just like, “I’m gonna prove I can do this other stuff too.”‘
