Henry Selick’s Untitled Stop-Motion Movie Needs a New Home

Henry Selick

According to Variety, Disney has shut down production on Henry Selick‘s forthcoming untitled stop-motion animated movie. He’ll continue to work on The Graveyard Book – based on Neil Gaiman‘s book – for the studio.

There’s no telling what the world will be missing because no plot nor concept image has been released at this point, but there’s a possibility that Selick will be able to get another studio to help carry it across the finish line. All hope is not lost for those of us who blindly trust Selick to make something magical – something we don’t even realize we want yet.

The article claims that studio insiders pointed to the movie not being where it needed to be. Originally set for an October 2013 release, they hadn’t even hired voice actors yet. Someone, please get on that. The world needs more Selick. However, the mystery remains why they would dump the project wholesale instead of simply push it back. After all, it’s in 3D! That’s guaranteed money!
