Neil Gaiman Gets Animated About Coraline
11.18.08 by REELZ
In a video interview with Wired, Neil Gaiman lays out the Alice-in-Wonderland-like story of Coraline, showing clips of the film -- due out February 6 -- along the way. Gaiman, who authored the award-winning novella on which the movie is based, also explains how his story was adapted for the first stop-motion animated film shot in 3D. It is, he says, "the biggest, most strange, expressive, peculiar, enormous stop-motion film I think that's ever been made." And that's certainly what audiences are hoping for from director Henry Selick, who worked with producer Tim Burton on The Nightmare Before Christmas.
A collection of five earlier Coraline featurettes can be viewed online at The Animation Blog. And Empire offers a look at the quirky new international poster.
