Director: Chris Butler
Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, John Goodman, Casey Affleck
This stop-motion comedy thriller was the first mainstream animation to feature an openly gay main character.
Employing a unique hybrid of CGI and stop-motion technology, ParaNorman tells of a town besieged by rudely awakened and rather irate zombies. The town’s only hope of salvation is Norman, a boy blessed with the ability to understand the zombies’ language (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee).
As he battles with ghosts, witches and moronic adults as well as the living dead, Norman’s supernatural powers are entertainingly stretched to their limits, and the film’s breathtaking pace is further enhanced by stellar voicing from the likes of John Goodman, Elaine Stritch and Casey Affleck.
