The next classic of animation is on the way, at least, I have my suspicions that The Boxtrolls is going to win people over, and become a favorite. From the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls is a stop-motion and CG hybrid about the town of Cheesebridge and the curious “trolls” that live underneath it. Wearing boxes, and with a certain affinity for cheese, the trolls are something of a town legend, but the strange assortment of monsters have raised a human boy since infancy, and worlds are about to collide.
This is one to get on your radar.
Check out the new BTS trailer above, as well as a teaser trailer and more info below, and let me know what you think about it. If nothing else, this one is going to be worth it for the voice cast.

Theatrical Release: September 26, 2014
Director: Anthony Stacchi, Graham Annable
Synopsis: The new 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class, and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.
