I love stop-motion movies, and Laika has become the name in producing the best of the best. Along with Coraline and Paranorman, they are preparing to release The Boxtrolls in 2014. Today, we’ve got the new trailer for the film, and it focuses on the amazing behind the scenes work that goes into making the magic come together on the screen.
Boxtrolls is slated for a September 26, 2014 release and features the voices of: Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.
The new 3D animated feature from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only the Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
