Ever since the first time I saw the Boxtrolls trailer I was eager to see the movie.  There is something about the style and design that I was really drawn to. The character designs are really fun but very unique that I was excited to see what this movie was all about.  I am a big fan of reading a book before watching the movie and since The Boxtrolls was based on a book, I ordered the book so I could read it before the movie came out.   The book made me even more excited for the movie because the story was interesting and a lot of fun. When the movie came out in theaters we saw it a few times as a family.


If you did not have the chance to see the movie in theaters, here is some information about Boxtrolls:

“Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, the Boxtrolls are unique creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs in a fantastical charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when the evil Archibald Snatcher schemes to capture Eggs’ family, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty new friend Winnie to save the Boxtrolls!”

I was very excited to get the Bluray because I was able to enjoy a movie that I already knew that I loved again, and again, and again in the comfort of my own home.  We love having pizza movie night, so this was a great choice to enjoy as a family because it is fun to watch, has a great story, full of laughter and adventure and a movie that all of my kids enjoy.


One thing I really love about Blurays is the special features.  It is fun watching a movie on the big screen but there is something special about being able to learn the behind the scenes for a movie.  I always find that I enjoy the movie more after seeing the whole process and passion put into making a film.  The behind the scenes for The Boxtrolls is fascinating and I highly recommend checking it out.  There are so many behind the scene features that you will love including:

  • Digital Copy of The Boxtrolls (Subject to expiration. Go to for details.)
  • Includes UltraViolet (Subject to expiration. Go to for details.)
  • Preliminary Animatic Sequences with Optional Commentary by Directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi

  • The Nature of Creation
  • Trolls Right Off the Tongue

  • Let’s Dance

The Boxtrolls is a family friendly film that your whole family of all ages will enjoy.  My kids ask to watch this movie again and again.  It is filled with so much heart, adventure and shows the importance of family.  We love this movie and I know you will too! Here is the trailer for your enjoyment:
