New ‘Coraline’ Videos Provide Peek At Production Of Animated Neil Gaiman Adaptation

For the legions of Neil Gaiman fans out there, February 6 can’t come soon enough. After all, as we’ve mentioned here numerous times on Splash Page, that’s when the 3-D, stop-motion animated adaptation of “Coraline” hits theaters. And even though that premiere date seems far away, the good people at Laika Entertainment, Focus Features and feel our pain, and have dropped a series of behind-the-scenes videos on YouTube — each one an entertaining and informative peek at the much-anticipated film.

After the jump, we’ve posted five (count ’em, FIVE!) more videos which explain how tiny knitting tools, shoving armpit hair into a gelatinous substance, and a highly-articulate moustache all play pivotal roles in the creation of “The Biggest Smallest Movie Ever Made.”

“Coraline” follows an imaginative young girl named Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning), who finds herself in an ideal, alternate version of her life after she walks through a secret door in her new home. And while on the surface, this parallel reality is both eerily similar yet much better than her real life, her adventure turns dangerous when her counterfeit parents try to keep her locked in her alternate reality forever.

What do you think, “Coraline” fans? These videos getting you excited for the upcoming movie? Talk to us in the comments.
