FOCUS ON PARANORMAN
Video Making Norman
Check out "Making Norman". This cool featurette takes you behind the scenes of PARANORMAN, a Focus Features release.
 
people in film Anna Kendrick
From stepping on the Broadway stage at 12 to getting an Oscar nom at 24, Anna Kendrick has been up for any acting challenge, including making Norman’s sassy sister Courtney (slightly) likeable in PARANORMAN.
Video PARANORMAN Premiere at Universal CityWalk
A video of the red-carpet premiere of PARANORMAN with cast, crew, and zombies.
 
people in film Casey Affleck
The angsty loner figures that Casey Affleck often plays would not make one think either kids' film or jock, but in crafting the voice of the hunk Mitch in PARANORMAN, Affleck once again proves how wonderfully unpredictable his choices and performances can be.
Video Hand-Making the World of ParaNorman
The filmmakers share the creative process behind the stop-motion animated feature PARANORMAN, a Focus Features release.
 
people in film Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Skyrocketing to stardom as everyone’s favorite nerd in Superbad, Christopher Mintz-Plasse has shown he’s more than just a geek in films from Kick-Ass to PARANORMAN.
people in film Tempestt Bledsoe
Having played the tack-sharp daughter Vanessa on The Cosby Show for eight seasons, Tempestt Bledsoe clearly understands childhood, an insight that helped her voice the kid-frustrated Sheriff Hooper in PARANORMAN.
 
people in film Kodi Smit-McPhee
In a few short years, the young Australian actor Kodi Smit-McPhee has created a legacy of characters, often bound by dire circumstances, whose humanity always shines through. Now voicing the title character in PARANORMAN, Smit-McPhee shows he can bring the same realness to comic horror that he exuded in horror films.
people in film Tucker Albrizzi
From being a best friend to his brother to playing Norman’s best friend in PARANORMAN, Tucker Albrizzi is a young actor that everyone seems to want to pal around with.
 
people in film John Goodman
In PARANORMAN, John Goodman voices Mr. Prenderghast, the crazy coot whose outrageous behavior seems to echo many of Goodman’s own larger-than-life, over-the-top characters from Roseanne to The Big Lebowski.
people in film Leslie Mann
Leslie Mann, who voices Norman's mother in PARANORMAN, may be a mom in real life, but she’s also carved out an remarkably assured career as a talented comic actress.
 
people in film Elaine Stritch
When Elaine Stritch sings Stephen Sondheim’s “I’m Still Here,” no one doubts that the legend of stage and screen has done everything she sings about (and more). It makes only sense that in PARANORMAN she should give voice to Norman’s grandmother, a powerful woman who is no longer here, but whose spirit lingers on.
people in film Jeff Garlin
Jeff Garlin has seemingly done everything, from TV to films, from writing to directing to acting. So why is it that as the voice of Norman’s dad in PARANORMAN no one listens to him?
 
Inside Our Movies A Brief History of Stop-Motion
Since the birth of motion pictures, stop-motion animation, like that in PARANORMAN, has proven to be one of the most amazing and magical forms of cinema.
Inside Our Movies Speaking Parts
Bringing PARANORMAN’s characters to life depends on giving them a voice, and for the filmmakers that meant casting real humans to speak for them, including Kodi Smit-McPhee, the voice of Norman.
 
Inside Our Movies Norman’s Numbers and Nuggets
To create the old-fashion fun of PARANORMAN, the filmmakers refined cutting-edge technology, created record number of detailed pieces, and in the end took stop-motion animation to a whole new level.
Story
When a small town comes under siege by zombies, who can it call? “Norman!” From Focus Features and LAIKA, the companies behind the Academy Award-nominated animated feature Coraline, comes the comedy thriller ParaNorman. Following Coraline, ParaNorman is the second stop-motion animated feature to be made at LAIKA in 3D, unifying the two stunning art forms to tell an all-new frightfully funny, magically emotional, and hilariously spooky story.
