Let’s pretend a world exists where the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas created a cinematic vision of a Neil Gaiman novel where a girl discovers an all-too-perfect parallel dimension from a secret door in her house. How ridiculously awesome would that be?
About this awesome:

I’ve been waiting for a trailer for this flick for a long time, and I’m ecstatic that 1) it’s finally here and B) it looks as fantastic as I could have hoped for. It’s definitely got that signature Selick look to the stop-motion animation, and the storyline is presented really well in the trailer – looking like The Stepford Wives created a settlement inside Pan’s Labyrinth. And somehow everyone was made out of cloth and clay.
Plus, it’s going to be in RealD for those fans who still love watching crap come out from the screen to attack them. Coraline hits theaters February 6, 2009. Also, check out the trailer in high definition over on Yahoo.
What do you think? How great does this trailer make Coraline look? Can we start calling Selick a modern-day Harryhausen or does he need to prove himself a bit more?
