All week, IGN.com is showing featurettes of the movie based on Neil Gaiman’s novel Coraline. You should really check them out. It looks to be a really great flick. Particularly, check out today’s post, which is titled The Story of Coraline.
I have not yet read Coraline. The story sounded interesting, but I never go around to it. Having seen these previews, I’m gonna head to the library and pick it up.
The movie looks visually stunning. It’s filmed in stop motion and the sets are not computer generated. Rather, the trees and houses and “puppets” are all models, made by hand. Think The Nightmare Before Christmas. In fact, Henry Selick, who did The Nightmare Before Christmas, is making Coraline as well.
Anyhow, check out the videos. I think this is gonna be a really great movie. The only bad thing is it doesn’t come out in theaters until next year.
