LAIKA’s awesome 3D stop-motion feature, ParaNorman opens this Friday. Directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell, the film centers on a young boy who can see the dead and must use this gift to lift a curse that threatens his small town. ParaNorman features the voices of Kodi-Smit McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Goodman, Casey Affleck, Leslie Mann, Jodelle Ferland and more. For more on the film, here’s six clips, a very cool featurette called Time Lapse, and all our previous coverage.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I spoke to Kodi-Smit McPhee. We talked about making ParaNorman, his reaction to the finished film, how the script change along the way, what surprised him about the recording process, and upcoming projects like The Congress, Romeo and Juliet and A Birder’s Guide to Everything. Hit the jump to watch.
