The Boxtrolls

"Everything you see has got to be designed and built by hand." This Friday, Laika's adorable stop-motion flick The Boxtrolls finally surfaces in theaters, and the work of all the meticulous and careful hands will brings joy to thousands. A new featurette has surfaced showing off just how big and gorgeous the sets are, and how detailed and well-crafted each and every character and set piece is in the film, no matter how big or small. Stop-motion animation is a long road of hard work, and this featurette shows just a small fraction of what it takes to get a film like The Boxtrolls made, and the best part is the movie is great too. Watch below!

Here's a great featurette on the making of Laika's The Boxtrolls from YouTube:

Watch two trailers from the United States and United Kingdom for The Boxtrolls right here.

The Boxtrolls are monsters who live below the streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. Or so the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs as one of their own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground and team with an adventurous young girl to save them. Graham Annable (story artist on ParaNorman) and Anthony Stacchi (co-director of Open Season) directs the film which Focus Features releases on September 26th this fall.

Love this niche market. I hope they can make one of these every few years.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago for my birthday, really loved it. I think Laika's films have something that is missing in a lot of other studios work.
