The Boxtrolls are making their debut in a little over a month and I’m so excited! Who are the Boxtrolls, you ask? Well, you must be living under a rock… or better yet, a BOX! Boxtrolls are fun little creatures who humans are afraid of, but probably shouldn’t be. But wait, there’s a twist to the story: there is a human living in their own Boxtroll community! Now, I haven’t seen the film (yet) but I am personally very excited about it because it is made in stopmotion animation, which means it took a lot of meticulous work and tons of patience. Have you ever seen behind the scenes of Coraline? I highly suggest it since it gives you a glimpse into what it takes to make a stopmotion film.
To celebrate the arrival of The Boxtrolls in theaters September 26, 2014, there is a cool Boxtroll sweeps going on where one winner will be chosen to receive an all-expense paid trip for 4 to the LA movie premier of The Boxtrolls!!
