Comic-Con 2012: Interview With PARANORMAN’s Directors And Stars

Meredith visited with Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kodi Smit-McPhee and the directors of PARANORMAN.

At SDCC, I had a chance to speak for a few minutes with the directors of ParaNorman, Chris Butler and Sam Fell, as well as with Kodi Smit-McPhee, who voiced Norman, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who plays the bully, Alvin. We decided to save this footage for the release of the film, which is in theaters today. Look for my review later this morning. 

My favorite part is when the directors start listing all of the ghost characters they wanted to include in the film but didn't have time, including a chemistry teacher named Mr. Corman who suffered a horrific accident. 

Quick notes - Henri Mazza was actually the cameraman for this one, and thanks to our own Brian Collins for editing all of our SDCC footage. You can read my coverage of the ParaNorman panel here.

We still have a couple of interviews that we'll release in time for Frankenweenie!
