A Featurette for the stop-motion animated pic "ParaNorman" is now online and the clip showcases the painstaking task it takes for an animator to bring Norman to life on the screen. Literally, the nuts and bolts of the process are shown here. Hitting theaters on August 17th, the 3D film follows Norman, a kid who can see and speak to the dead, as he tries to save his small town from hordes of zombies unleashed by a curse.
In "ParaNorman," a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
ParaNorman stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Elaine Strich, Tempestt Bledsoe, Bernard Hill, Alex Borstein, Tucker Albrizzi
