Synopses & Reviews
Based on the award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman!
From the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas comes a visually stunning stop-motion animated feature — the first to be originally filmed in 3-D! (Includes 4 pairs of 3-D Glasses)
Coraline Jones is bored in her new home until she finds a secret door that leads her into a world that's just like her own...but better! But when this fantastical adventure turns dangerous and her 'other' Mother tries to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness and bravery to get home.
