Why Coraline Is Confused For A Tim Burton Movie (It's Complicated)


Coraline is gothic in tone, stop-motion in style, and definitely weird, but did Tim Burton make Coraline? Since Coraline’s release, the movie has been mistakenly associated with The Nightmare Before Christmas creator and Corpse Bride director Tim Burton. It’s true that Coraline shares a lot of things in common with many Tim Burton movies like Frankenweenie — it’s a kid-friendly, stop-motion horror film with the gothic vibe Tim Burton has become synonymous with over his decades-long career. Despite those similarities, Tim Burton actually had nothing whatsoever to do with Coraline's production.
