Coraline, Other Wybie Puppet Head

original movie prop

An adventurous girl finds another world that is a strangely idealized version of her frustrating home, but it has sinister secrets. From the 2009 Laika film Coraline, this is a screen used face of the other Wybie used on various puppets throughout filming has magnets in the face allowing the animators to switch out faces depending on the scene(s) showing the characters numerous facial expressions. The Other Wybie is the alternate version of Wybie Lovat. He has buttons for eyes just like the rest of the Other characters. He has been incapable of speaking due to the Other Mother, as she knew that Coraline would find Other Wybie much less of an annoyance to her. It's unknown whether or not the Other Wybie's mouth was made shut or if The Other Mother hurt him enough to keep him quiet. The Other Mother said that she "Fixed him". This face being in two pieces allowed the mouth and brow sections to be changed as needed while the line seen across the nose would be removed by computer during post-production.
