Product Description

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 that’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, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley) 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 Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.

My sons and I love these stop motion animation films, we were excited to see this from the first teaser trailer we saw last year and were not disappointed.
The Boxtrolls is set in a small steampunk style town called Cheesebridge where above ground we have the people of the town who are mostly normal if not a bit cheese obsessed and below ground in a cavernous hoarders wonderland we have the boxtrolls (basically trolls who wear boxes). The boxtrolls are garbage scavengers/inventors and are seen to be cute and loving creatures who even raise a young orphaned boy named Eggs, he is the main character/hero of the story. The town villain Archibald Snatcher however has plans to rid the town of these creatures to get what he wants and he will stop at nothing.
After Coraline and Paranorman I was excited to see what was next as I find the animation beautiful to watch and The Boxtrolls was simply brilliant, I think it is my favourite so far and I hope it's not too long until their next film.
The story and the characters were entertaining for my both my boys and myself, the animation stunning and I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say about it, I would recommend this to anyone with children over 5 as I would think it is a bit scary in places for very young kids but other than that it's perfect family viewing.
