The upcoming 3D animated film ParaNorman is likely the most elaborate stop-motion animation project of all-time, and looks pretty entertaining to boot!

Starring Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick and John Goodman, the film - which is made with puppets - centers on a young boy named Norman Babcock.

Norman able to speak to the dead and must take on ghosts, witches and other forces following the invasion of his small New England town by zombies.

Check out the trailer for the film, in theaters Friday:

Unlike other animation, stop-motion requires that movement of every person and object on screen must be done by someone. Groundbreaking stuff.
