I'm so looking forward to this movie being released that I just have to shout about it :D
The story will probably be entertaining, but what's got me happy dancing is that it's made by the people who made Coraline. I adore this style of old fashioned, stop frame animation and have spent as much time watching the making of Coraline as I have the actual movie. In another life I'd have loved to have been an animator, but maybe that goes back to playing with dolls which is what this is essentially, only on a massive scale :D
