ParaNorman making-of featurette: “Hand-making the World”

I posted the trailer for Laika’s ParaNorman last October, and while the film still has a little way to go before its August 17th release, Focus Features has posted a making-of featurette on the official website.

I’m a huge animation nerd, and I love behind the scenes/making-of stuff, so I thought I’d post something other than a trailer or a short film just this once.

A synopsis for the zombie flick follows after the cut:

Trailer Watch: Stop-motion zombie action in Laika’s ParaNorman teaser

Laika, the stop-motion animation studio that produced Coraline, is back next year with ParaNorman.

In the film, a boy who can speak to the dead must save his town from a zombie uprising.

ParaNorman is aiming for a August 17, 2012, release. The voice cast features Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin, John Goodman, Bernard Hill, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
