Coraline Synopsis

Based on Neil Gaiman's international best-selling book, "Coraline" is the story of a young girl (voiced by Fanning) who unlocks a mysterious door in her new home, and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this other world eerily mimics her own life - though much more fantastical. In it, Coraline encounters such off-kilter inhabitants as the morbidly funny Miss Forcible and Miss Spink (French and Ms. Saunders, respectively), and a counterfeit mother (Hatcher) - who attempts to keep her. Ultimately, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home.

McShane will voice the role of Mr. Bobinski, an irascible, beet-eating Russian giant who lives upstairs from Coraline's "home" in the parallel reality.

The popular music group They Might Be Giants ("TMBG") will provide songs for the film.
