ParaNorman stop-motion puppets and vehicles on display...

In the stop-motion animated movie ParaNorman, a misunderstood local boy who can talk to the dead must help save his town from zombies, ghosts and witches and remove a centuries old curse.

These fantastic stop-motion puppets and models from the movie by the creators of Coraline, were photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on August 11, 2012 to help promote the supernatural themed film.

On display was what looked like an homage to Scooby-Doo's Mystery Machine, which I believe belongs to high school jock 'Mitch Downe' (the puppet driving the van), the big brother of Norman's chubby friend 'Neil'.

On top of the van is one of the zombies terrorizing their New England town of Blithe Hollow.

Meanwhile, in the front seat are Norman's older cheerleader sister 'Courtney Babcock' next to Mitch, with Norman behind her and Neil beside him. Behind Norman is also the school bully 'Alvin'.

Here's another car complete with puppets, and if you can see the lights of both vehicles light up which is pretty cool.

If you're a fan of stop-motion animation, be sure to also check out these original puppets from Coraline, sets and characters from Fantastic Mr.Fox and claymation characters from The Pirates Band of Misfits.
