The Boxtrolls Trailer: You're So Square!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The latest trailer for LAIKA's The Boxtrolls has arrived and it’s easy to see that this film is from the team that brought us the beloved Coraline quotes and ParaNorman too!  

One thing this latest The Boxtrolls trailer has that is an utter delight… a taste of the theme song You’re So Square and I Don’t Care by Cee Lo Green!

The family stop-motion animated movie tells the story of a community of impish creatures (the Boxtrolls) who took it upon themselves to raise a human orphan. They named him Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the mind-blowing cave-type home that they’ve built below the streets of the fictional city with the delightful name, Cheesebridge. 

Things are going swimmingly, that is until the town villain Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) decides that it is time for the community to rid themselves of the Boxtrolls once and for all. 

The Boxtrolls is based on the beloved novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow and also features Elle Fanning (soon to be seen in Maleficent), Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It is due in theaters September 26.

Whew, that’s a long way off! Why not investigate LAIKA's first feature and watch Coraline online
