A new trailer has arrived online for The Boxtrolls , the new animation from Laika, the creators of Coraline and Paranorman .
The new trailer sets about establishing the world of the Boxtrolls, a race of mischievous but friendly creatures who have happily raised an orphaned human boy, named Eggs.
However, all is not well, as villainous town rotter Archibald Snatcher has cooked up a plan to get rid of the Boxtrolls once and for all. Boooooo!
Take a look at the new trailer, below…

It looks as though Laika has come up with another loveable cast of characters here, while the stop-motion animation looks as painstakingly gorgeous as ever. We’d imagine another family smash is on the cards…
Directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi, and co-starring the voices of Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Ben Kingsley and Simon Pegg, The Boxtrolls will open in the UK on 12 September 2014.
