filme coraline

LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK

We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?

Did you guess yet?

If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.

Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…

Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Have you guessed it correctly? Have you really?

Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”

Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!

Happy birthday, Coraline! February 6th, 2009.

Makin’ up a song about Coraline! She’s a peach, she’s a doll, she’s a pal of mine!

She’s as cute as a button in the eyes of everyone who ever laid their eyes on Coraline!

When she comes around exploring Mom and I will never, ever make it boring! Our eyes will be on Coraline!

when people think all stop-motion is tim burton

when people think all stop-motion is claymation

when people try to exterminate your non-human family

“What’s your name”, Coraline asked the cat.
“Look, I’m Coraline. Okay?”

“Cats don’t have names”, it said.

"No?” said Coraline.

"No”, said the cat. “Now you people have names.
That’s because you don’t know who you are.
We know who we are, so we don’t need names”.

Coraline (2002) Neil Gaiman.
