From the creators of Coraline, brand new animated film ParaNorman follows the mystical adventures of Norman Babcock, a misunderstood boy with an unusual paranormal gift. Follow his journey as he fights to save his hometown, Blithe Hollow, from a centuries old curse, as ParaNorman is released on 3D Triple Play Blu-ray & DVD with UltravioletT and Digital Download on 28th January 2013 courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK).
Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road) is a regular boy, with the unique ability to see dead people. Attracting ridicule from his family and schoolmates, he leads a lonely existence until he meets best friend Neil (Tucker Albrizzi, Good Luck Charlie). After receiving a deadly warning about the future of Blithe Hollow from his ostracised Uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman, Monsters Inc.), he takes it upon himself to try and save the day.
Joined by Neil, his vapid sister Courtney (Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air), Neil's brother Mitch (Casey Affleck, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and school bully Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Superbad) they fight a range of ghouls in a battle that pushes even Norman's paranormal abilities to their limit.
Other characters along for the ride in this ghoulish journey include Norman's mother Sandra (Leslie Mann, Rio), father Perry (Jeff Garlin, Cars 2) and Judge Hopkins (Bernard Hill, Valkyrie).
Watch in awe at ParaNorman's amazing features, as it is only the second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D and follows Laika's groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated film Coraline. With special features to recreate and enrich the ParaNorman experience, including deleted scenes, prepare for a ghostly journey into Blithe Hollow.
Don't miss ParaNorman available to pre-order now and to buy on 3D Triple Play Blu-ray & DVD with UltravioletT and Digital Download from 28th January 2013.
