The only videogame based on the upcoming movie, Coraline will allow players to explore and interact with such immersive 3-D environments from the movie as the Pink Palace, its nooks and crannies and apartments, and the unpredictable Other World. Players will engage in unique mini-games and adventures with Coraline’s friends Wybie and Cat as they collect items that will unlock the mysteries of the Other World.
“The Coraline movie is absolutely mesmerizing and we feel that the visual style and tone of the game will bring the amazing stop-motion animated film and thrilling storyline to life for players,” said Bill Anker, vice president of business development, D3P. “We’re confident that Coraline will offer a truly immersive and interactive gameplay experience that gamers as well as fans of the movie and best-selling book will enjoy.”
Coraline will feature the voice talents of Dakota Fanning, Keith David, and Robert Bailey Jr. All three actors will reprise their onscreen voiced roles of Coraline Jones (Fanning), Cat (David) and Wybie Lovat (Bailey Jr.).
From Henry Selick, visionary director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, and based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling and Hugo Award-winning book, comes a spectacular stop-motion animated feature – the first to be originally filmed in stereoscopic 3-D. A young girl (Dakota Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents (voiced by Teri Hatcher and John Hodgman) try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.
Currently available in North America, Coraline is slated to ship in Europe in May 2009 for the Wii, NDS and the PS2.
