There are plenty of animated flicks around the corner, but one such film that has my attention has to be The Boxtrolls. It’s got all the charm of stop-motion animation, and the quality looks absolutely superb. There’s a lot of work that goes into animating those little trolls however, as studio Laika will tell you. See for yourself.
The film currently boasts 125 000 still frame images, which means that anyone involved in that film most likely has thumbs that could win arm-wrestling competitions by now. Collider got to see the inner workings of the film, so check the images out below:
Featuring the voices of Isaac Hempstead Wright, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan, and Jared Harris. The Boxtrolls opens September 26th.
