As September gets closer, I am getting more excited about the upcoming movie “THE BOXTROLLS”! It’s being made by the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” and Emi and I loved both of those movies. Have you taken a peek at the trailer for the movie yet?
THE BOXTROLLS tells the story of a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy , Eggs. THE BOXTROLLS features the voices of Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright and Tracy Morgan.
Check out THE BOXTROLLS’ new character posters! Aren’t they adorable?
You can download your own set of their character posters here.
I think I’m partial to “Shoe”! Which one of these do YOU think is cutest?
I don’t know who gets more excited for the release of new family films, me or my daughter? I LOVE to watch kid-friendly movies with Emily, especially because the filmmakers always seem to include so many clever details to capture adults’ interest too. Now the the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman are coming out with another film, The Box Trolls!
Here’s a synopsis of the film:
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.
In honor of día del Padre, here’s an adorable printable you can print out to use for a special father!
I don’t think I can wait until 9/26/14 for The Box Trolls to come into theaters!
It’s going to be such a fun film, don’t you think?
