Directed by Chris Butler (who also wrote the screenplay from his original idea) and Sam Fell and featuring the voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Leslie Mann, ParaNorman is the thrilling story of 11-year-old Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who must use his unique ability to see and speak with the dead to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
In addition to spooky zombies, he’ll also have to take on mysterious ghosts, wily witches and, worst of all, clueless grown-ups. Now caught in a wild race against time to save his family, friends, and town, Norman must bravely summon up all that makes a hero – courage and compassion – as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
