Okay, I will have to say that The Boxtrolls is absolutely the cutest movie I have seen, in a long time. I love it, my kids adore it and it is ALWAYS playing in our home! This great film has been nominated for 13 Annie Awards, so you KNOW it is pretty dang good!
We loved the movie Coraline and the movie ParaNorman and BoxTrolls is from the same creators. These kinds of movies I have always liked.
When we have movie nights (usually Friday or Saturday nights), my kids will request this movie, 8 times out of 10. They really like it!
What Is BoxTrolls About??
Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, the Boxtrolls are unique creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs in a fantastical charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when the evil Archibald Snatcher schemes to capture Eggs’ family, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty new friend Winnie to save the Boxtrolls!
Based upon the book Here Be Monsters! The Boxtrolls voice cast also includes Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette, Jared Harris (Mad Men), Nick Frost (The World’s End), Richard Ayoade (The Watch), Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead).
