Henry Selick’s Coraline is returning to the massive display screen this 12 months in celebration of its fifteenth birthday.
Neil Gaiman, who wrote the eponymous 2002 novella on which the movie relies, introduced by way of BlueSky on Wednesday (February seventh) that the 2009 stop-motion flick is getting “correctly” remastered and re-released in 3D format. It’s at present scheduled to hit theaters someday in August 2024.
Coraline stars the voice of Dakota Fanning as Coraline Jones, a younger woman who’s lower than happy about her household’s latest relocation to Oregon from Michigan. Whereas her dad and mom are continually preoccupied with work, Coraline discovers a small door in her new home that results in a suspiciously similar alternate universe known as the Different World. There, she encounters button-eyed doppelgängers of her dad and mom, who spoil her with infinite consideration — for higher or for worse.
Coraline was Selick’s follow-up to 1996’s James and the Large Peach and have become the third highest-grossing stop-motion movie of all time after its preliminary theatrical run. As for its re-release, you’ll be able to join by way of LAIKA Studios’ web site to be notified for ticket sale data.
