‘Coraline’ Returning to Theaters in Remastered 3D Later This Summer

It's time... to go back. Coraline in Remastered 3D, August 2024

In celebration of the film’s 15th anniversary, LAIKA and Fathom Events have announced that the 2009 stop-motion animated feature “Coraline” will return to theaters this August bigger and better than ever.

Directed by Henry Selick, “Coraline” was the first animated feature to be conceived and photographed in true, stereoscopic 3D. The modern classic will return to select theaters worldwide from August 15–22 in newly remastered stereoscopic 3D. According to Variety, the screenings will be accompanied by a sneak peek at Laika’s upcoming film “Wildwood.”

Fans will also go behind the scenes with LAIKA’s award-winning puppet fabrication teams as they construct the all-new versions of the Coraline puppet from the ground up. The team – many of whom helped build the original Coraline – will revisit the iconic puppet’s design to apply new, cutting-edge technology developed by the studio over its four films released since 2009’s “Coraline.”

Tickets for the remastered 3D release will go on sale on Friday, June 21. Those interested can sign up to be notified by email when tickets go on sale at

“Coraline” combines the visionary talents of author Neil Gaiman and Selick and stars voice actors Dakota Fanning, Ian McShane, Teri Hatcher, Keith David, John Hodgman, Dawn French, and Jennifer Saunders.

The film follows Coraline, a young girl who walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life–only much better. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to save her family and return home.
