Neil Gaiman & Henry Selick's 3-D Animated Coraline


Neil Gaiman & Henry Selick's 3-D Animated Coraline

Update 12/30/09: There is a new interactive website for Coraline.

Over the weekend I saw a movie theater display for Coraline, an upcoming stop-motion animated feature in 3-D. The film is a feature-length adaptation of Neil Gaiman's bestselling children's novel Coraline. It is written and directed by Henry Selick (director of The Nightmare Before Christmas) and produced by LAIKA.  

Dakota Fanning will provide the voice for Coraline.  The cast also includes Ian McShane, Teri Hatcher, Keith David, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, and John Hodgman.

It's in theaters on February 6, 2009. Looks fun.

(a higher quality trailer is available on yahoo)

I didn't understand the movie website at first, but Drawn! has unlocked a few codes that may help you out. At first I was frustrated that the website requires secret codes to unlock hidden videos and content. But, it's gratifying when you finally discover something new.

Below are a few of screenshots from hidden clips: has also posted several clips for Coraline. Here are a couple videos that talk about the process of making the film.
