The video below is part teaser, part behind-the-scenes tribute to the meticulous detail that goes into stop-motion. From Coraline and ParaNorman animation studio LAIKA, The Boxtrolls is still some way off – Focus opens it on September 26, 2014 – but the folksy tune that accompanies this new teaser seems fitting for a holiday. The Boxtrolls is based on Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters! and follows a boy named Eggs who’s raised by an unconventional family of underground-dwelling creatures who live in cardboard boxes. Among the voice cast are Isaac Hempstead Wright, Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Jared Harris and Richard Ayoade. Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi co-direct.
