The Boxtrolls

A delightful stop-motion animated fantasy, stuffed with imaginative thrills, off-the-wall humour and quirky characters (Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley and Richard Ayoade are among the voice cast)

A delightful stop-motion animated fantasy, stuffed with imaginative thrills, off-the-wall humour and quirky characters (Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley and Richard Ayoade are among the voice cast).

The setting is the comically grotesque Victorian town of Cheesebridge, where social-climbing villain Archibald Snatcher (voiced by Kingsley) has persuaded the locals that the weird but harmless underground-dwelling Boxtrolls are dangerous child stealers.

Raised by the Boxtrolls, young orphan Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) knows better and strives with his new friend Winnie (Elle Fanning) to foil Snatcher and his henchmen's extermination plan.
