New Boxtrolls Images Reveal Quirky And Clever Character Traits

The Boxtrolls First Trailer Is A Shout-Out To Gay Families
Laika's next film The Boxtrolls probably doesn't have anything that much to do with gay characters either, but they've made a fascinating shout-out to gay families in the first trailer, which debuted today on Apple.
