Back by Popular Demand, “LAIKA Experience” Returns to Universal Studios Hollywood

Good news – you have a second chance to see this amazing stop-motion animation exhibit. By overwhelming popular demand, LAIKA Studios will present a return holiday engagement of “From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience” from December 21, 2016 to January 15, 2017 at Universal Studios Hollywood. This special event will take place within the theme park’s Globe Theatre and is included in the price of admission.

This innovative, interactive installation is a first class museum exhibit devoted to the artistry and imagination behind LAIKA’s groundbreaking 10-year filmmaking history – which includes the Academy Award-nominated films Coraline (2009), ParaNorman (2012) and The Boxtrolls (2014), as well as this year’s acclaimed Kubo and the Two Strings, recently named Best Animated Feature of 2016 by the National Board of Review, Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and Atlanta Film Critics Society and nominated for ten Annie Awards (including Best Animated Feature). The exhibition previously debuted this summer at Universal Studios Hollywood and was met with tremendous success, enjoyed by thousands of guests.

“From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience” showcases the evolution of LAIKA’s unique blend of handcrafted stop-motion animation and visual effects magic that will once again come to life in four imaginatively themed rooms. The extensive display of original sets, puppets and props will immerse guests in their singular, fantastical worlds.

If you are visiting Southern California over the holidays, I highly recommend you visit this one-of-a-kind, last-chance-to-see-it exhibit.
