About this deal

Finding the key to said door, Coraline finds a magical way in, and soon finds herself in an alternate universe, complete with clones of her parents, the house, and everything she ever knew, just better.

Inside Laika – Revisiting The Puppets With Laika’s Animation Team is broken down into separate sections for The Beldam, Mr. Factory has also included approximately nine minutes of deleted scenes here that are available with an introduction from Selick to put each clip into context and explain why it wasn’t used. Overall, the bonus materials are almost all of the same things you got on the original 2009 Blu-ray with a little more added. The fans are certainly going to enjoy this audio upgrade if they’re on a sound system capable of experiencing it. Americanized and just a bit souped up from the children’s novel by Neil Gaiman, it sets a surly, blue-haired tween heroine (voiced by Dakota Fanning) on a supernatural shuttle between two worlds contained inside her family’s new, and very pink, ramshackle apartment home.

Previously available only as an exclusive hardware-tied release, 'Coraline' 3D is now available everywhere. When this seemingly perfect world turns dangerous, Coraline must use her resourcefulness, determination and bravery to save her family.

The supernatural element is, however, far darker than one first imagines, with a rather nasty subtext, even if the warning message is clear, and, as a parent, hits home on many levels. the picture, swiftly going through concept, casting, and technical challenges, showing off the labor of stop-motion animation. Sourced from a new 4K restoration, Shout’s UHD of Coraline renders the hand-crafted details of the puppets and décor in tactile detail. Feature-Length Storyboards (1 hour, 34 minutes, 2 seconds – HD) were originally included on the 2009 Blu-ray as a PIP (picture-in-picture) feature and now are full screen via this which gives you the entire film storyboarded out. White level is just as keen, giving intensity to the highlights and really beaming off the screen when the world unravels.work of Neil Gaiman, Selick has terrific fun building the landscape of the movie from the ground up. Selicks film is a horror fable wrapped up in a kids fairy-tale and whilst the message is clear it is not overstated and played with such gusto that not only does it entertain but sends the proverbial shiver down any parents spine. Kozachik imbues the film with the right amount of creativity for the cinematographic elements to unfold. Teri Hatcher is outstanding in the role – especially in regards to voicing the "other mother" to Coraline. The story was really disturbing if you looked at it closely, and doesn’t have the same fine tuning of story elements that Laika would come to perfect in films like The Boxtrolls or Kuba and the Two Strings, but it was fascinating to say the least.

So, I’ll be offering you the still screenshots for both the 2009 Blu-ray Disc and the new 2022 4K UHD Blu-ray releases. Coralineis a dark children’s fantasy that feels like it belongs in the 80s when kids’ movies actually had bite and grit to them.

So, as you can tell from the comparisons above there is an excellent amount of newfound detail here in 4K resolution, especially with the addition of HDR (high dynamic range) which breathes new life into this 2009 film. On top of all of this the 3D effects are top notch, especially the scene where Coraline enters the "opposite world".

The sound effects are focused and have very smooth transitions when they need to from speaker to speaker. is visible during the viewing experience, but the grand technical achievements of the endeavor aren't threatened. The release retains the remarkable supplemental package previously released on the Blu-ray Special Edition from Shout Factory.

The Making of Coraline - A series of ten individual featurettes that can be watched in one chunk with the play all function. Still, after more than a decade, this film is sweet, charming, and haunting and leaves some lasting visuals that will no doubt conjure up some nightmares. While that may not be the most attractive aspect of the release, the new material is a pretty cool look inside the making of the movie and the arduous process of making these films. It’s a film that was directed by a man [Henry Selick] who also did some of my other favorite modern stop-motion animated films as well.
