1. The Sequel We’ve Been Waiting For
We all loved the 2009 stop-motion animated movie Coraline, based on Neil Gaiman’s 2002 novel of the same name. The story follows a curious girl who discovers a secret door in her new home that leads her to an alternate world that is eerily similar to her own, but with some key differences. The movie was a critical and commercial success, and fans have been clamoring for a sequel ever since.
Unfortunately, it looks like we may be waiting a while for Coraline 2. Director Henry Selick has said that he has no plans to make a sequel, and Gaiman has also said that he doesn’t think a sequel is necessary. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no hope for a Coraline 2 at some point in the future.
It’s been over 10 years since the original Coraline was released, and in that time, stop-motion animation has undergone a renaissance of sorts. Thanks to films like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Kubo and the Two Strings, and Isle of Dogs, stop-motion is now more popular than ever. If Selick and Gaiman were to change their minds and decide to make a sequel, there’s a good chance they could find the funding and support they need.
only time will tell if we’ll ever get a Coraline 2. In the meantime, we can always rewatch the original and hope for the best.
2. When Is Coraline 2 Coming Out?
It’s been over a decade since we first saw Coraline on the big screen, and fans have been clamoring for a sequel ever since. The good news is that a sequel is finally in the works, with director Henry Selick returning to helm the project.
The bad news is that the release date is still up in the air. Here’s everything we know about Coraline 2 so far.
The original Coraline was released in 2009 and was based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. The stop-motion animated film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $120 million worldwide.
Despite the success of the first film, a sequel was never greenlit. According to Selick, the main reason for this was because the studio, Focus Features, felt that the movie was too dark and scary for a sequel.
The news was first announced at Gaiman’s commencement speech at the University of the Arts, where he revealed that Selick had optioned the rights to a sequel and was already working on the script.
In an interview with /Film, Selick confirmed that the sequel is still in early development, but he’s hopeful that it will be released in the next few years.
“I don’t want to jinx it, but we’re shooting for a release in a couple of years,” Selick said. “It’s all very hush-hush right now, but we’re hard at work on it.”
The plot of the sequel is being kept under wraps, but Selick has said that it will be “even darker and more daring” than the first film.
“The story is even more daring than the first one,” Selick told /Film. “It goes to some really dark places. It’s really exciting.”
While we don’t have a release date for Coraline 2 yet, we’re hopeful that it will be released in the next few years. In the meantime, you
3. The Long-Awaited Return of a Childhood Favorite
We all have that one movie from our childhood that we absolutely loved. For me, that movie is Coraline. I was so obsessed with it that I watched it every single day for months. I even had a Coraline-themed birthday party. So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard that a sequel was finally in the works.
It’s been over 10 years since the original Coraline was released, and I’m happy to say that the wait was worth it. Coraline 2 is everything I could have hoped for and more. The animation is gorgeous, the characters are even more lovable, and the story is even more heartwarming. I was laughing, crying, and cheering throughout the entire movie.
If you’re a fan of the original Coraline, then you need to see the sequel as soon as possible. It’s a beautiful, emotional, and unforgettable experience.
4. A Movie That’s Been a Long Time Coming
We all know the feeling. You watch a movie and absolutely fall in love with it. The characters, the story, the world… it all captivates you and you can’t get enough. So naturally, when the credits start to roll, you’re left wanting more. And sometimes, if we’re lucky, we actually do get more. A sequel to our favorite movie is announced and we can barely contain our excitement.
But then the waiting game begins.
It can be years – even decades – between the release of the first movie and its sequel. And sometimes, despite our best hopes and dreams, that sequel never comes. Here are four movies that have been a long time coming:
1. “The Godfather Part III”
The Godfather Part III was released in 1990, six years after The Godfather Part II. And while it wasn’t quite the masterpiece that its predecessors were, it still managed to be a pretty great movie in its own right.
2. “Independence Day: Resurgence”
It took 20 years, but Independence Day finally got its sequel in 2016. And while Resurgence wasn’t quite as good as the original, it was still a lot of fun to watch.
3. “Mad Max: Fury Road”
Mad Max: Fury Road was released 30 years after Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and it was definitely worth the wait. It’s one of the best action movies of all time and it completely revitalized the franchise.
Coraline was released in 2009 and it quickly became a cult classic. And while we still don’t have a sequel, there’s been talk of one for years. Let’s hope it happens sooner rather than later.

5. Can’t Wait for Coraline 2!
When is Coraline 2 coming out?
Unfortunately, there is no release date for Coraline 2 yet. The project was first announced back in 2018, but progress has been slow due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully, now that vaccines are being rolled out, production can resume and we’ll get a release date soon.
Who is returning for Coraline 2?
The plot of Coraline 2 is being kept under wraps for now, but we do know that the sequel will be based on Gaiman’s sequel novella, The Doll’s House. In the novella, Coraline enters a parallel world that is a dark mirror of her own. This time, she must save her parents from the Other Mother and her army of rat creatures.
We can also expect the sequel to be just as visually stunning as the original. Henry Selick, the director of Coraline, is returning to helm the sequel. Selick is a stop-motion animation legend, having also directed The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach.

6. final words
We’ve all been there. We’ve fallen in love with a movie, only to find out that there’s no sequel in sight. It’s a tragic moment, made even worse by the fact that we know we’ll never see our favorite characters again. But sometimes, against all odds, a sequel is finally released. And when that happens, it’s like all our dreams have come true.
Coraline 2 is one of those sequels.
Fans of the original movie have been clamoring for a sequel for years, and it finally seems like it might be happening.
“I would love to make Coraline 2,” Selick said. “It’s just a matter of getting the script right and finding the right circumstances, the right studio, the right partners, all of that. But I’m working on it.”
This is exciting news for fans of the original movie. A sequel has been a long time coming, and it’s finally starting to seem like it might become a reality. We can’t wait to see what Selick has in store for us.
