New Trailer for Laika's 'The Boxtrolls' Features Cee-Lo Green

The amount of work that goes into stop-motion animation requires an extremely long lead time, which may explain why we've been seeing footage from Laika's The Boxtrolls since last summer. The film doesn't come out for months, but now another trailer has been released for what looks like another magical entry from the folks behind Coraline and ParaNorman.

Featuring the voices of Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Ben Kingsley, Tracy Morgan, and Richard Ayoade, the Victorian-era story follows Eggs, an orphan in the town of Cheesebridge who was raised by trolls beneath the streets. Kingsley voices Archibald Snatcher, an exterminator hired to wipe out the Boxtrolls, who are believed to be stealing the city's children. This trailer also includes an original song by Cee-Lo Green.

With no animated projects from Pixar this year, perhaps there's room for Laika to finally get the attention they deserve? Co-directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi, The Boxtrolls opens September 26th.
