Laika is on a roll with Coraline, ParaNorman and now The Boxtrolls.  It’s sometimes a slow roll because of their dedication to painstakingly crafting their films, but it’s worth it.  Stop-motion animation takes forever, and pulling it off in such a gorgeous manner must take even longer.  Now we have a new teaser and poster that bring us a little closer to the world we’ll be visiting in a little over six weeks.

Hit the jump to check out The Boxtrolls teaser and poster that introduces the characters of Fish, Oil Can, Knickers, Wheels, Sweets, Eggs and Sparky.  The Boxtrolls arrives in theaters on September 26th and features the voices of Isaac Hempstead WrightElle Fanning, Ben KingsleyToni ColletteNick FrostSimon PeggRichard AyoadeTracy Morgan, and Jared Harris.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Boxtrolls:

A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” 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 Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
