Get ready to discover The Boxtrolls, the magical monsters that come out at night.
I simply cannot wait to meet these lovable characters that are upcyclers at heart and super brave. Like many outsiders, they are misunderstood and mistreated. From experience I know that many have a hard time accepting anything different, strange and well a bit dirty. I hope to see more parent head to the theaters with their family to see films like The Boxtrolls, that bring acceptance and joy to the big screen.
Take a sneek peek at The Boxtrolls trailer below. You simply must! Watch it closely for the moment where girl is explaining the proper way to shake hands. I had to watch it twice to see what the fuss was all about; as that brief moment of look away on my part had my daughter rolling with laughter.
See you there!
About The Boxtrolls
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 Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
