The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least thatâ€™s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change â€“ and cheese.
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 Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs' family. Directors: Anthony Staachi and Graham Annable. (C) Focus
The Boxtrolls is just a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era village obsessed with type money and the stinkiest of good cheeses. Stay strong things who steal what the townspeople maintain many dear and investigate from the sewers at night: their cheeses and their children, the Boxtrolls. At the very least that’s the icon people have often presumed. In fact, the Boxtrolls are a subterranean cavern-home group of trendy and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard containers their covers are worn by just how turtles. The Boxtrolls have increased an orphaned individual child since childhood as you of the dumpster – fishing and mechanical junk -gathering own. If the Boxtrolls are focused by way of a villainous insect exterminator who is bent on eliminating them as his solution to Cheesebridge culture, the sort-hearted band of tinkerers should flip with their used fee and an adventurous wealthy gal to connection two sides amidst the winds of alter – and cheese.
