For the first time ever, you can enjoy two LAIKA films on 4K UHD which includes a limited edition steelbook case.
Brought to you by Laika Studios and Shout! Factory, these two groundbreaking and Academy Award-nominated stop motion features, Coraline and ParaNorman, are now available in 4K for the first time ever! The films have been through 4K restoration with HDR and Dolby Vision plus Dolby Atmos for the ultimate entertainment experience.
Coraline and ParaNorman were painstakingly remastered by the team at LAIKA, led by LAIKA CEO (and Kubo and the Two Strings Director) Travis Knight, and Visual Effects Supervisor Steve Emerson, who pored over each film shot-by-shot, paying close attention to every last detail and color to present these groundbreaking films in the most dynamic format.
The use of Dolby Vision has made these films look more spectacular than ever before, with vivid colors and exacting picture quality, and with highlights brighter and essential dark elements darker, unleashing the full potential of HDR technology. The films were also mixed in Dolby Atmos spatial audio, bringing out more details and clarity in the sound, resulting in an even more immersive experience for fans.
The SteelBook releases feature new hand drawn art from auteur illustrators carefully selected to newly represent the films while keeping their original spirit alive. Known for creating bold and vibrant illustrations, Cancun-based illustrator and Art Director Cesar Moreno created the art for Coraline, and the ParaNorman cover art was drawn by Kevin Tong, an artist living and working out of Austin, TX.
The sets include all the bonus features of the recent LAIKA Studios Editions and a new booklet.

The sets include all the bonus features of the recent LAIKA Studios Editions and a new booklet. The Boxtrolls Steelbook case will be created by Cancun-based illustrator and Art Director Cesar Moreno, and the Kubo and the Two Strings cover art was drawn by Kevin Tong.
