Fourteen Years Later, ‘Coraline’ Remains a Lauded Classic from LAIKA Studios
Coraline initially graced the theaters in 2009, captivating both critics and audiences alike, and achieving considerable box office success. This triumph firmly established LAIKA Studios as one of the preeminent stop-motion animation powerhouses, rivalling the likes of Aardman. Since then, the studio has delighted viewers with further acclaimed releases such as Paranorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings. However, following the underwhelming box office performance of their last stop-motion animated feature, The Missing Link in 2019, LAIKA has been dormant in this realm. Nonetheless, they are poised to make a triumphant return. Previous reports indicate that the studio is set to release The Night Gardener, helmed by director Travis Knight, who directed Kubo and is also working on an upcoming adaptation of Wildwood. While these projects are still a few years away, fans can satiate their appetite by revisiting the film that ignited LAIKA’s extraordinary journey when Coraline graces the big screen once again this summer.
Coraline’s return to theaters will be for two nights only, commencing on August 14. Watch the official trailer of this animated classic below.
