It’s been a while since we’ve heard more from LAIKA about The BoxTrolls, but since the film won’t be released until September 26th, that’s to be expected.
Well, if you were itching to hear more, today is your lucky day. Behold! The latest trailer for The BoxTrolls:
This trailer is particularly exciting at this point in our journey of following the film because it shows us so much more about the film than we’ve seen in the past. We finally get to see the differences between the troll world and the human world, and we see how the boy who’s story we are following goes between both worlds.
There is, of course, much more to discover as we get closer to the release of the film, but until then, we can read and re-read the synopsis, and watch and re-watch the trailers we have so far in extreme anticipation.
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.
