Focus Features unveils the teaser trailer for Laika’s new animated film, The Boxtrolls, slated for release on September 26, 2014.

Focus Features has unveiled, via iTunes Movie Trailers, the teaser trailer for ParaNorman creator Laika’s new animated film, The Boxtrolls. Featuring the voices of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan and Simon Pegg, The Boxtrolls is slated for release on September 26, 2014.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

The new 3D animated feature from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only the Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
