Go Behind the Scenes of 'ParaNorman'


The fine folks at Laika have just released a new behind-the-scenes featurette from their follow-up to Coraline -- ParaNorman (due in theaters in 3D on August 17th). It's called "Hand-Making the World of ParaNorman." Check it out below.

Here's the synopsis for ParaNorman: "The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company LAIKA, reteaming the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated “Coraline.” “ParaNorman” is, following “Coraline,” the company’s second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In “ParaNorman,” a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits."
