The lucky bastards over at IGN got a chance to visit the set of Henry Selick’s upcoming 3D stop motion animation feature Coraline, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, and returned with some pretty impressive images.
Henry Selick’s upcoming stop-motion animated version of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline is probably one of my most anticipated films of the next few years. We’ve been reporting on it for seemingly years now, so the fact that it’s finally being made is fantastic.
Continuing to show off all NECA has to offer at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Nomad ran across their display of puppets from the upcoming stop-motion animated film Coraline, based on the book by Neil Gaiman. These aren't the figures NECA will make, but the actual puppets used in the actual film. Very cool! Apparently he went a little insane with the images this time, so there’s a lot to sift through.

How odd is it that I was just thinking about the long-discussed adaptation off Neil Gaiman’s fantastic children’s book, Coraline (get the book through Evilshop), and all of a su
Reviewed by Johnny Butane Written by Henry Selick 2nd rewrite: May 8, 2002 Something that's proven to be exceedingly difficult for screenwriters over the years is to take elements from a book that is really well-loved by it's fans and be able to translate them into a script in a way that makes sense. So many authors delve into deep description when they play out a scene in a novel, and to make that come alive in screen can be a pain.
