When so much work goes into a film, you better make the most of showing it off with behind-the-scenes footage! In that vein, Focus Features presents the latest special featurette for LAIKA’s upcoming stop-motion adventure The Boxtrolls (out September 26), “The Nature of Creation.”
Based on Alan Snow’s Here Be Monsters! and directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi, The Boxtrolls centers on a boy named Eggs who is raised by misunderstood Boxtrolls under the streets of hoighty-toighty Cheesebridge. When the upstart exterminator Archibald Snatcher hatches a plan to eliminate the trolls and boost his own standing in the town, Eggs must confront the surface world in order to save his adoptive family.
