Hillsboro animation studio Laika announced its third feature film will be "The Boxtrolls," an adaptation of Alan Snow's novel "Here Be Monsters."

The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in ‘Cheesebridge,’ where beneath its cobblestone streets dwell the ‘Boxtrolls.’ Legend has it that they are foul monsters, but in truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of oddballs who have raised an orphaned human boy.

Describing the story as “Dickens by way of Monty Python,” Laika president and CEO Travis Knight said in a released statement: “The Boxtrolls is a visually dazzling mash-up of gripping detective story, absurdist comedy, and steampunk adventure with a surprisingly wholesome heart. …At its core, like all Laika films, The Boxtrolls is a moving and human story with timelessness and powerful emotional resonance.”
