In theaters today, THE BOXTROLLS is another stop-motion animation film in the spirit of NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and COROLINE. Set in underground 19th-century England and focused on a community of monsters so shy they wear cardboard boxes to hide their bodies, the story has them going to battle with a town villain intent on extermination.
Directed by GRAHAM ANNABLE and ANTHONY STACCHI, the top-notch voice talent includes BEN KINGSLEY, ELLE FANNING, TONI COLLETTE, TRACY MORGAN, JARED HARRIS and SIMON PEGG.
Earlier this year, we caught up with ELLE FANNING (who voices the character of WINNIE in the film) on the red carpet at ComicCon and she talked about why audiences are going to love THE BOXTROLLS.
THE BOXTROLLS opens in theaters today.
