From the inventive Laika folks who brought us the Oscar-nominated Coraline and Paranorman comes this adorable, first trailer for The Boxtrolls.

Paranorman producer Travis Knight and co-director Sam Fell were recently invited by The Academy to join the membership.

The Boxtrolls - a 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated movie is based on Alan Snow’s bestselling fantasy adventure novel Here Be Monsters.

The voice cast includes Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Game of Thrones), Emmy Award nominee Jared Harris (Mad Men), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Nick Frost (the upcoming The World’s End), Richard Ayoade (The It Crowd), and Tracy Morgan (30 Rock).

I like how the baby wasn’t afraid of them – as if to say, “ok, lets go!” –  and being a huge fan of the amazing stop-motion animation, I can’t wait to see what Laika has in store for us. »
