There’s an exhibition dedicated to Laika’s stop-motion craftsmanship currently taking place in Los Angeles, but most people will never see it because the show is located inside of Universal Studios Hollywood.
“From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience” opened last Friday and continues through this Sunday, August 14, at Universal’s Globe Theatre, which is included in the price of admission to the theme park. (For the record, Universal is the parent company of Focus Features, the distributor which releases Laika’s films.)
Tied into this month’s release of Kubo and the Two Strings, the exhibition highlights not only the current film, but Laika’s earlier efforts: Coraline, Paranorman, and The Boxtrolls. The pieces on display include original sets, puppets, and props.
