Laika has ushered in a mini-golden age of stop-motion animation with films like Coraline, Paranorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and The Two Strings, and now they’ve just unveiled their latest potential classic.
When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher, comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie.
Laika has created a renaissance in the world of stop motion films through Coraline and Paranorman. With the Boxtrolls, it’s looking like they’ve built on that solid foundation and created a film that is even more fun and visually stunning.
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.
