And he's looking for writers to work there. Very exciting news, just don't read the comments.

Wasn't he back at Disney?

He is. His new studio will be a satellite studio that will work under Disney.

This sounds pretty cool. But you weren't kidding about the comments though (Yeah, I read them against my better knowledge).
Say it once! Say it twice! Take a chance and roll the dice! Ride with the moon in the dead of night!

Hopefully... It better scare the pants out of kids. A PG 13 film thats stop-motion from Selick would be interesting to see.

Selick has a long history of scaring children, so it's obvious that this one is gonna follow suit. And I also hope he pushes the boundaries of stop motion even more so than Coraline.

If you hadn't heard, Disney turned down the first of the two projects Selick was developing at his studio, a film called Shademaker (the other being The Graveyard Book).

Fortunately, Disney left Selick the option to shop Shademaker around and see if other studios were interested (as the deal with Disney was more of a distribution one then full ownership) and Laika might end up helping him out.

Comment Sections are always festering grounds for bigotry, ignorance and overall douchebaggery. They're best avoided on any site.

Bad news.

LAIKA will not pick up Selick's project.

Shadow King (Shademaker was a working title) is, as of now, considered dead

And it looks like the project is back on again


Best animation news I've heard this year so far.

Well, might I just say: FUCK. YES.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
