3 Incredible Facts About the Film Coraline
Today's post will be all about Coraline facts you probably didn't know, so get some popcorn ready.
Mr. Bobinsky's Blue Color:
Mr. B, the man we all know and love, has one thing in common: he's blue. I know, it's strange, isn't it? There's a reason for his unusual color. Mr. B wears a medal that indicates he is from Russia, in addition to his accent. In both worlds, he wears the same medal.
The radiation released during the disaster had harmful effects, and because Mr. B was part of the clean-up crew, he had turned this sad shade of blue from radiation exposure.
Wybie, also known as Wyborne Lovat, is introduced early in the film. As a result, Coraline dubbed Wybie the "Village Stalker," having previously twisted his name into "Why were you born?"
In any case, Wybie seemed to be everywhere, didn't he? This is why. Wybie was an unofficial candidate. What exactly do you mean?
Yes, I realize. Wybie did not appear in the first Coraline novel. Because it is difficult to read a character's mind, Wybie was included in the film for Coraline to converse with.
The Doll in the Opening Scene:
The film begins with a creepy scene of creepy needle-made hands (which we will later learn are the other mother's hands that she had replaced because she was deteriorating without souls to live on), she retrieves a doll from a window, and she appears to be floating to her destination (we will get to that later). Is this doll familiar to you?
Wybie's missing grandmother is actually one of the ghost children. She used this doll on her as she had done with Coraline. After luring her in, she proceeded to look them in the eyes (souls). When the doll was transformed into Coraline, it was returned through the window in its original form.
