The post Coraline to Receive Theatrical 3D Release for 15th Anniversary appeared first on Consequence.
Henry Selick’s Coraline is returning to the big screen this year in celebration of its 15th birthday.
Neil Gaiman, who wrote the eponymous 2002 novella on which the film is based, announced via BlueSky on Wednesday (February 7th) that the 2009 stop-motion flick is getting “properly” remastered and re-released in 3D format. It’s currently scheduled to hit theaters sometime in August 2024.
Coraline stars the voice of Dakota Fanning as Coraline Jones, a young girl who’s less than pleased about her family’s recent relocation to Oregon from Michigan. While her parents are constantly preoccupied with work, Coraline discovers a small door in her new house that leads to a suspiciously identical alternate universe called the Other World. There, she encounters button-eyed doppelgängers of her parents, who spoil her with endless attention — for better or for worse.
Coraline was Selick’s follow-up to 1996’s James and the Giant Peach and became the third highest-grossing stop-motion film of all time after its initial theatrical run. As for its re-release, you can sign up via LAIKA Studios’ website to be notified for ticket sale information.
