Launching with the new movie this fall.
Today Funko announced they will be releasing a new line of POPs to coincide with the release of The Boxtrolls. The Boxtrolls is the newest movie from the creative team behind the hit animated films Coraline and Paranorman. The film comes to us by way of Focus Features and Laika and will feature a hybrid of 3D stop-motion and CG. The films is described by Focus Features as:
“The Boxtrolls is a family event movie that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.”
