Fans of ParaNorman and Coraline are waiting patiently for the new film The Boxtrolls. Done in the same stop motion claymation style as the other two popular films, The Boxtrolls is the story of a young orphan boy named Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) taken in by a group of Boxtrolls who live under the streets of the village of Cheesebridge. The evil Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) decides to get rid of the Boxtrolls once and for all. Eggs goes above ground to help stop the plan and gets help from Winnie (Ellie Fanning) to rescue his adoptive family.
At this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con, an Eat Like a Boxtroll Foodtruck was set up at Petco Park to provide guests with the chance to try the bug delicacies of the lovable underground creatures featured in the film. Eggs himself, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, was there to try it out.
