Neil Gaiman's movie adaptation of novel Coraline , about a young girl who finds a parallel universe inside her own home, has an amazing behind-the-scenes story. In these clips, you'll discover how the crafty designers used stop motion to create a beautiful orchard filled with cherry blossoms made of popcorn. You'll also find out how 5 miles of thread created one 5-inch-tall character. Director Henry Selick embroidered his button-eyed parallel world with insane detail. He even hired an artist to hand knit the characters' itty bitty sweaters. Coraline will be released on theaters on February 6.
