Laika's The Boxtrolls now has two featurettes, "The Nature of Creation" and "Meet the Characters". Watch them both below.

LAIKA's stop-motion, 3D feature  The Boxtrolls is  based on Alan Snow's bestselling novel Here Be Monsters. 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.he Boxtrolls is 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.

 See how the natural elements and the impressive setting were created in "The Nature of Creation" featurette.

 

Despite the need to emphathize with the characters (which share a lot of the featurette's time), what matters in The BoxTrolls is the painstaking creation of a Victorian world in a stop-motion fashion.

Release date: 26 September 2014 (US), to find out if the setting will take precedent over the story and plot in The Boxtrolls.
