‘The Boxtrolls’ Trailer: Things Get Downright Adorable in New Stop-Motion Adventure
Who knew trolls could be so adorable? From directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi comes this exciting new animated film about a little orphan boy raised by the box-wearing trolls who dwell in the underground and collect trash to come up with new gadgets and inventions. Based on the novel ‘Here Be Monsters’ by Alan Snow, the film follows the young boy as he grows up and helps save his troll friends from an evil exterminator who threatens their existence.
The new ‘Boxtrolls’ trailer highlights the film’s fantastic voice cast, including Isaac Hempstead Wright (that’s Bran from ‘Game of Thrones‘), Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Ben Kingsley, Jared Harris, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan — and on top of all that voice talent, the animation looks wonderful, which is what we’ve come to expect from the brilliant minds at Laika.
We can’t wait for this one, but we’ll have to, as it doesn’t hit theaters until September 26. (And for those curious about the song in the trailer, it’s “Go” by Santigold, featuring Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.)
