LAIKA Releases New Behind the Scenes Trailer for THE BOXTROLLS

The Boxtrolls

Even though it’s still a year out, I’m still a sucker for anything stop motion – even moreso when it’s coming from the same studio responsible for Coraline and ParaNorman. First teased back in July, THE BOXTROLLS is LAIKA’s next movie project starring Simon Pegg, Ben Kingsley and Nick Frost (among others) that features an orphaned boy named Eggs and his oddball clan of monster friends who live beneath the streets of Cheesebridge.

Rather than spoil too much of the story, the latest trailer for the film goes behind the scenes at LAIKA to show some of the intricate work that goes into making the cast. In era where 3D has officially replaced traditional 2D animation I’m definitely excited to see LAIKA continue to release such well-produced and hand-crafted animated films.
