In celebration of its fifteenth anniversary, Coraline is heading back to studios in remastered 3D, and will also include a sneak peek of LAIKA’s next film.

“LAIKA set the 3D standard with the 2009 release of Coraline,” LAIKA CMOO David Burke said in a statement. “This newly remastered version, in the works for three years, brings Neil Gaiman’s enchanting story to life in stunning, stereoscopic 3D detail, and is a love letter to LAIKA fans everywhere. Thanks to our partnerships with Fathom and Trafalgar Releasing, we are thrilled to bring this cinematic jewel to a global audience this year. The release will include an early glimpse of LAIKA’s upcoming film, Wildwood, making it the must-see film event of the summer.”

Here’s the synopsis of the movie, in the small chance you’ve never heard of it:

Eleven-year-old Coraline Jones (Dakota Fanning) is feisty, curious, and intrepid beyond her years. She and her parents (Teri Hatcher, John Hodgman) have just relocated from Michigan to Oregon. Missing her friends and finding her parents to be distracted by their work, Coraline tries to find some excitement in her new environment but seriously doubts that her new home can provide anything truly intriguing to her. But when she walks through a secret door in her living room and ventures down an eerie passageway, she discovers an alternate version of her life and existence. On the surface, this parallel reality is similar to her real life – only much better. The adults, including the solicitous Other Mother (Hatcher), seem much more welcoming to her. Even the mysterious Cat (Keith David) now regards her as the center of attention. She begins to think that this Other World might be where she belongs. But when her wondrously off-kilter, fantastical visit turns dangerous and Other Mother schemes to keep her there, Coraline musters all of her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.

Coraline was written and directed by stop-motion legend Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Wendell & Wild) and stars Dakota Fanning, Ian McShane, Teri Hatcher, Keith David, John Hodgman, and British comedy duo Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. [ed note: and if you’d like to learn more about the sweaters, here’s a portal to a magical world.]

The movie will be in theaters from August 15-22, 2024. Tickets go on sale on June 21, 2024, and you can check to see if its playing at a theater near you.
