Build Your Very Own BOXTROLL
Before the new stop-motion animated film THE BOXTROLLS hits theaters on on September 26, Focus Features and LAIKA invite you to get creative and build your very own Boxtroll at TheBoxtrolls.com.
One grand prize winner’s Boxtroll will be brought to life as a real puppet by LAIKA artists, and other Box-tastic prizes are available.
LAIKA artists put a ton of blood, sweat and tears into bringing THE BOXTROLLS to life. But that’s only three ingredients.

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.
Based on the novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow, the voice cast includes Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy Morgan.
Directed by Anthony Staachi and Graham Annable.
