Story: A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” 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 Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
Directors: Anthony Staachi and Graham Annable
Writer: Based on the novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow
Voice Cast: Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan
This looks like it’s going to be a super fun family movie. The kids and I loved both Coraline as well as ParaNorman. This style of work reminds me of earlier Tim Burton work and it’s amazing what they can accomplish. The voice cast is so diverse. We will be definitely going to see this one on the big screen.
