Next weekend, fans will get to experience the quirky world of Cheesebridge when The Boxtrolls debuts in theaters on September 26. To get fans ready for this stop motion animated adventure, Focus Features has released a featurette, clip and five viral videos.
This special preview includes new footage and interviews with voice cast members Ben Kingsley (Snatcher), Elle Fanning (Winnie) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Eggs), who break down the unique family dynamic shown when The Boxtrolls, a group of lovable creatures who live underneath the town of Cheesebridge, raise the young orphan boy they call Eggs as their own. We also have a clip where Winnie breaks the news to Eggs that he isn't really a Boxtroll, despite being raised by them, and five viral videos that highlight several unique aspects of how The Boxtrolls carry out their lives.
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.
