Where can I watch Coraline? Sometimes, the best movies for kids are the ones that stop them sleeping at night. And that’s a category into which Coraline slots very neatly. Even as an adult, it has more than a few slices of proper nightmare fuel.

Laika arrived on the scene as an animation studio to watch with Coraline, which adapted a Neil Gaiman story through the stop-motion genius of Henry Selick into one of the best animated movies of the 2000s. It’s one of the best family movies ever made, as long as you don’t mind giving your kids a few nightmares. Healthy nightmares. Character-building nightmares.

It has been more than a decade since Coraline became one of the most exciting new movies of 2009, and it’s now considered to be an absolute classic. It’s certainly right up there with the best movies to come out of Laika’s animation factory. So where can I watch Coraline, including the latest cinema re-release?
