LAIKA’s hit stop motion 3D horror comedy feature ParaNorman will be making its way to DVD shelves courtesy of Universal Studios Home Entertainment next month, November 27, which puts the schedule in the sweet spot just a few weeks after Halloween and a few weeks before Christmas, making this the ideal part of your holiday movie haul.
ParaNorman will be released as a 3D Blu Ray Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download (compatible with iOS and Android) and UltraViolet. Extras include animatics with commentary from director Sam Fell and writer/director Chris Butler, behind-the-scenes piece “Peering Through the Veil,” seven short character featurettes and feature commentary with Fell and Butler.
ParaNorman is a gorgeous stop motion animated film that focuses on a boy named Norman, who is treated as a pariah in his town due to his uncanny ability to converse with the dead. But when an age-old curse starts to bring back the dead as zombies, it is up to Norman and his ragtag group of unlikely friends to save the entire town. The film stars Kodi-Smit McPhee as Norman, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Elaine Stritch, Bernard Hill, Jodelle Ferland, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein and John Goodman.
