Watch This: New Featurette for ‘The Boxtrolls’

Boxtrolls Making Of

Who’s stoked that LAIKA‘s new animated feature The Boxtrolls is opening this weekend? We are! To get you more pumped up, here’s a new featurette from LAIKA about the film. Enjoy, after the jump…

And here’s the official synopsis of the film, too:

From LAIKA, the creators of ‘Coraline’ and ‘ParaNorman,’ comes a family event movie 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 Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.

The Boxtrolls opens in U.S. theaters on September 26th.
