Animated Movies I'm looking forward to seeing...

an upcoming animated stop-motion film based on Neil Gaiman's novella of the same name.
Coraline is a young, bored girl who discovers that a bricked-up wall behind a door in her flat leads to another world, with another mother, and another father.

Laika Entertainment House (formerly Vinton Studios) has funded the film with around $50 to $70 million. It will be animated and co-directed by Henry Selick and Mike Cachuela and is scheduled to be theatres released on January 16, 2009. It is the first stop-motion animation to be shot stereoscopically with a dual digital camera rig for digital 3-D exhibition.[1] New tools are being developed which will give the stop-motion creators the same flexibility as CGI animators, making it possible to push objects forward and back in post[1]. Dakota Fanning will star as the voice of Coraline. Teri Hatcher will lend her voice to the roles of both Coraline's Mother and her Other Mother. Ian McShane will voice Mr. Bobinski, a beet-eating Russian giant who lives upstairs from Coraline in her alternate reality.
