Laika Studios, the genuises behind “Coraline” and “ParaNorman”, are currently hard at work on their next 3D animated feature, “The Boxtrolls”. The films tells the story of some odd little critters that live in the sewers of a Gothic-style Victorian City.
If you’d like a little more information about the film, you can read the official synopsis below:
“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.”
“The Boxtrolls” features the voice talents of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg. The film will release nationwide on September 26, 2014.
