With the theatrical release of The Boxtrolls almost here, two new clips have been released online reminding us of the importance of family. To “The Boxtrolls” family is very important and in these new clips, we explore the unique world of Eggs and his adoptive family!
A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), 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 Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
The stop-motion film is based on the novel, “Here Be Monsters” by Alan Snow. It features the voice cast of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy Morgan.
You can see the new featurette and clip below! The Boxtrolls releases in theaters on September 26.
