About this deal

Full Moon brings together a six pack of B-movies produced by legendary schlockmeisters Eurocine in one handy boxed. Previously available only as an exclusive hardware-tied release, 'Coraline' 3D is now available everywhere. This sets into motion a domino effect where Coraline’s old world suddenly doesn’t look so bad after all, particularly when she starts to learn the truth about her ‘other mother. The Blu-ray looks great still, but the rich blue of Coraline’s hair, or the red smoking jacket of her “fauxther” absolutely leaps off the screen in 2160p. Inside Laika – Discovering The Characters Of Coraline is an eleven minute piece wherein the different people that worked on the feature discuss their work, what went into animating the feature, how the characters were brought to life by using stop motion animation, having to make the animation style work alongside the voice acting work, the importance of bringing emotion to the characters and more.

Selick has more to say than his compatriot here but this is never the less a good discussion that covers adapting the original novel for the screen, character design, post production work and of course scoring the film. Although she’s left at home indoors all day with her parents Coraline decides to go outside, after some strong parental suggestion, where she meets an odd young boy about the same age named “Wybie” ( Robert Bailey Jr. case literally, suck the life out of those that seek it at the cost of everything they know to be true.So, she’s feeling a bit bored and slightly down with her parents being too busy to even talk to her or spend any time.

This film has such an amazing art style and I’ve always been a fan of it since it was first released on Blu-ray in 2009, so it makes me happy to say that this earns a perfect 5 rating for overall video quality. Voicing the Characters” (10 minutes, 47 seconds – HD) was previously included on the original 2009 Blu-ray release. It has a “Certified Fresh” badge over at Rotten Tomatoes with (at the time of writing) a 90% rating. Later that night, a mouse leads her back to it, whereupon she discovers a strange tunnel leading to an exact replica of her house, complete with ‘other mother’ and ‘other father’, where everything is what she wants: good food, attention, fun and colour, the only peculiarity is everyone has buttons for eyes.Up next are a series of featurettes starting with the thirty-six minute Making Of Coraline, which follows the making of the film from Selick’s pre-production ideas through to the actors finalizing their voice work. Coraline Jones is bored in her new home until she finds a secret door that leads into a world that’s just like her own … but better!

What she finds is a strange alternate reality where her parents seem much nicer and more attentive, Wybie can’t talk, and the rest of the neighbors all adore her. Coraline isn’t the best of the Laika animated films, nor is it the best Neil Gaiman adaptation either. Dad (John Hodgman) makes god-awful experimental meals, while Mom (Teri Hatcher) forbids stomping around in the muck after a rainstorm.The story is about a young girl named Coraline who moves with her family to a small town and discovers a parallel universe behind a secret door in their new house. Given specific instructions to go explore the house and LEAVE THEM ALONE by her parents, Coraline sets out to find something to entertain herself.
