The animated version of Neil Gaiman’s children’s classic, “Coraline,” opens tomorrow (in Real3D at select theatres!) and as of this posting it’s already received a score of 86% over on Rotten Tomatoes. In honor of the mainstream premiere, W+K Radio will be hosting NPR’s Ketzel Levine as she interviews Coraline’s director, Henry Selick (James and the Giant Peach, The Nightmare before Christmas) and the secretive Travis Knight, who (according to the best information available to us through a random Google search) may or may not be the Vice President of Animation at Laika Studios and the animation lead on the Coraline production. Laika is the phoenix resurrected by Nike co-founder Phil Knight from the ashes of the old Will Vinton Studios in Portland, Oregon.
The show is scheduled to air via the interwebs at 10:00 a.m. PST tomorrow, February 6, 2009 (that’s 1:00 p.m. on the east coast US and 2:00 a.m. in China). W+K Radio is a production of local advertising house Wieden+Kennedy, which handled the promotion of the Coraline film.
